Please join us in welcoming Clara Parkes back to Loop on Thursday, February 18, 2016 at 5:30pm to celebrate her newest book Knitlandia: A Knitter Sees the World. Knitlandia will be released two days earlier and we’ll have copies available for purchase and for Clara to sign.
From the publisher’s description –
Knitting aficionado and notable artisan Clara Parkes delves into her storied travels with this inspiring and witty memoir on a creative life enriched by her adventures around the world.
Building on the success of The Yarn Whisperer, Parkes’s rich personal essays invite readers and devoted crafters on excursions to be savored, from a guide who quickly comes to feel like a trusted confidante. In Knitlandia, she takes readers along on 17 of her most memorable journeys across the globe over the last 15 years, with stories spanning from the fjords of Iceland to a cozy yarn shop in Paris’s 13th arrondissement.
Clara will be here at 5:30pm. She’ll give a talk at 6:30pm. We’ll have drinks and light refreshments – please join us!
