The first is that AKG encourages our members to Knit in Public on Saturday 11 June. If you can, take a picture and send it here to firstname.lastname@example.org. We'd love to see where you were and hear about your experiences!
Secondly, our friends at Southeast Fiber Arts Alliance are hosting a yarn bombing in Freedom Park (near the Carter Center) from noon to 3 PM also on 11 June. The information:
Bring small pre-made creations in any fiber technique and/or work on-the-spot. We'll combine, stir, and stitch together all contributions into a semi-permanent (one month) fiber art installation. For your comfort, plan on bringing snacks and drinks and chairs/blankets to sit on, sunscreen and bug spray. The spot has shade but no air conditioning.If you have any leftover acrylic yarn, this is a great opportunity to use a hardy fiber outdoors!
Meet on the multiuse path near the intersection of Highland Ave and Albion Ave. You can park at the Carter Center. If you come from the Connector and take the Freedom Parkway exit, keep right at the exit for Carter Center/Moreland Ave and exit left for the Center.
Come back to the blog on Friday to see a list of the shops participating this year in WWKIP Day.
