A small group of women have continued throughout the winter to gather every 1st and 3rd Tuesday at 2 pm to share knitting ideas, resources, and of course, our experience at fijnKNIT Atelier. The conversation is mostly in Dutch, and I (proprietor of fijnKNIT) try to follow as much as possible with a little help from my friends. Our translation is not limited to conversation, however. We share knitting books and resources that are written in Dutch, English, French, Japanese and German and all of us seem to have diversified skills such that we compliment each other and provide a wide diversity of talent to enjoy.
We invite everyone from beginners to experts, young and old, Flemish speaking and non-Flemish speaking. We enjoy coffee, tea, homemade goodies, wine and cheese while we sit around a well-lit table. I ask a small donation of 5 € to cover the cost of the goodies and beverages. I provide a tool table with a skein winder, ball winder, and other various and sundry tools that one might need while working with textiles. The open atelier gathering lasts into the evening and everyone is free to come anytime after 2 and leave anytime before 9 pm. I have a beautiful selection of luxury and naturally dyed yarns, and a fabulous selection of the highest quality natural dyes available for sale. We have a lot of fun together…
And we have another eager friend, always willing to keep you company, my darling Jasmine….
Between trims, she looks more like an alpaca than a dog, and everyone asks me if I spin her hair. The answer is no, never. I don’t spin dog hair, no matter how cute they are. I’m hooked on lambswool, thank you very much.
So, if your interested in sharing slow fiber and knitting of all sorts, learning no matter who you are or what you know, and enjoying the good company of women, please feel free to join us.
