April – Fiona Ellis

April 18, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Fiona Ellis, Knitwear Designer and Knitting Trailblazer

Bathing Beauty

Bathing, that invigorating act of stepping into pool or sea in the company of others, has a history that drifts back to Roman times, possibly even earlier. How, where, and with whom we swim or bathe—and how it’s viewed by society—changed considerably between ancient and modern times. But whatever the era, these factors all contribute to how people choose to clothe themselves for a swim or a splash. Let’s dive in for a look at the evolution of western swimwear and the shifts in viewpoint that brought about those changes.

Vendor Details:

The great pre-Frolic TKG member destash!!  Maybe you have buyer’s remorse about that certain sweater quantity of black yarn you know you will never ever knit up? Maybe you have run out of space in your yarn closet? For this meeting only, there will be no outside vendor; instead, members are encouraged to bring excess skeins from their stashes to sell. Each vendor will have one-half of a table, or space at the front of the auditorium to display their goods, free of charge. Vendors should be prepared to arrive before 6:30 pm, set their own pricing and make change as required, and take home any unsold yarn. For planning purposes, we’d like to know how many members are interested in taking part – if you want to join in, please email Susan Loube at lys@torontoknittersguild.ca.
