KNITTING: NOT JUST A HOBBY

August 24 @ 7:00 pm

FREE

Hannah Thiessen, author of “Slow Knitting” and “Seasonal Slow Knitting” will host a virtual discussion of how knitting is a lifestyle, rather than just a hobby, for the Essex Library community on Tuesday, August 24 at 7 p.m.  Join in to hear more about the true depth of finding your passion, embracing creativity in everyday ways, and finding meaning for skills we’ve set aside. Through knitting and similar textile work, even “unartistic” people can link up with their creativity in new ways.   

Hannah Thiessen is a freelance creative and social media marketing consultant with a specialty in yarn and knitting-related business. Having worked with companies like Malabrigo Yarns, Bare Naked Wools, and Shibui Knits, Hannah cares deeply about wool: where and how it is made into yarn, and what it becomes in the hands of the knitter. She has dabbled in various textile-related crafts from quilting and garment-making, to spinning her own yarns, knitting, and weaving. She lives in Nashville, TN. 

This Zoom event is free and open to the public. Registration is required. For more information or to register, please call the Essex Library at 860-767-1560 or see https://www.youressexlibrary.org/.
