Researching and Knitting Historical Clothing – Lynne Pascoe
Maximum participants: 110
A collaborative session involving a presentation, discussion, and hands on learning. Just how do you start to knit a garment that has a history? We will discuss where you might find accurate information, available patterns (or not), appropriate materials, and often best educated guesses. Lynne will lead you through a recent project to knit cardigans for Memory Lane Historic Village, an award-winning living history museum depicting coastal rural life in Nova Scotia during the 1940s, and discuss other challenges she has been given over the past twenty years.
