“All stitchers, you don’t need me to tell you what our stashes mean. You live it. I’m preaching to the choir. In fact, this book is the choir, each voice singing loud and proud.”
Any new book from Clara Parkes is an occasion to celebrate, but true to form, the knitting community-builder has also turned this book into a choir of voices from the fiber arts world, some of them lighthearted and some very intimate (one that reduced me to tears at the beach, I’ll let you guess which)—all of them worth their weight in wool. We hope to see you at any of these stops on the tour, starting with the launch today! Keep an eye out for a special gift with purchase at any of these—a license to hold a stash of your own, whatever it means to you.
