Kicking off the weekend at 7 pm on Friday, March 9
The Knitting Revolution Pamela Wynne Butler, knitwear designer and University of Notre Dame professor explores the history of knitting and feminism in order to make political sense of today’s so-called “knitting revolution.”
Doors open at 6:30 at the Stata Center, room 141. 32 Vassar Street in Cambridge. Looking forward to our top of the meeting show and tell! Last year, our Friday night meeting spawned new topics for FiberCamp, so who knows what will hatch this year?
Saturday and Sunday,March 10 and 11
9 am to 5 pm in the Tang Center (Building E51) 70 Memorial Drive, Cambridge, MA
Fibercamp sprouts from the fact that everyone has something to share and teach. Connect with the community by sharing your passion.
Participants present, teach and share smaller bite-sized ideas and techniques ranging from beginning fair isle to photography to making a duct tape mannequin. Some presentations might be demonstration-only or completely PowerPoint-based and some will be hands-on. Because this conference is powered by the people who attend it, you are responsible to be a part of the conversation.

Click on the Session Topics tab to see what people would like to learn, and what people are offering to share. We’ll also include descriptions of the rooms, the schedule, and usually someone starts an FAQ page. This site is a “wiki” which means its contents are built by the conference participants.
