My good friend Donna Druchunas infromed me earlier in spring that she was organizing a knitting cruise for USA knitters. They would attend Scandinavia, Baltic states and probably St. Petersburg as well and will hear presentations on knitting traditions and design. Donna asked me whether I would talk about my knitting methods and show my knits. Luckily the group was scheduled to arrive to Tallinna today, that is, the day after my return from Lithuania. I agreed; the event was organized by Melissa Gower-Pence (travel agent from USA), Koolibri publishing house (they delivered several copies of my book to the venue) and Estonian Folk Art and Craft Union. I talked at the quarters of Estonian Folk Art and Craft Union at Pikk 22 in Tallinn and there were 4 groups of knitters. It was lovely because one thing is to read blogs and watch forum pictures and quite a different thing is to be able to touch knitted garments with your own hands and to brouse books and magazines. The discussion was rather lively. I answered numerous questions, discussed planns and particular knits etc.
At 9 a.m. Crafts Union has prepared everything. Me as well.
Re-union with Donna after a long pause. The day was quite full!
