It followed the fish, the flight paths of immigrants, the sea-lanes of war: the knitted clothing of New England reflects maritime cultures the world over. Rich with origin mythology and salty with sailor's yarns, garments like nipper, half-handers, and the infamous fisherman's sweater each hold a romantic yet real place in our coastal history. Knits So as to Turn Water: The History of New England's Maritime Knitting will be presented by Rebecca Bayreuther Donohue, historian & knitter.
Free and open to all.
Registration is suggested as seating is limited and is available one month prior to the event.
