Knitting Nordic Heroes

September 16, 2023 @ 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Knitting Nordic Heroes (Webinar)

Saturday, September 16 | 1:00-2:00 pm CT

Location: Online on Zoom

From Merit Emstad who designed the first Selbu mitten to emigrants from the Nordic countries, knitters made an economic impact. These women helped give a sense of national pride, they hired women who at the time could not work out of the home, they set standards for the way we read knitting patterns, and they helped restore their economies. This talk with Steph Anderson will bring light to these heroes, some of whom are famous and some who had to fight to get credit for their work.
