In her new book, Seasonal Slow Knitting, Hannah delves deeper into these concepts through a series of essays, projects, and patterns that explore the life of a knitter throughout the year.

Join us for an intimate Zoom conversation with Hannah Thiessen as she discusses her inspiration to create the slow knitting tenets, how she published her two books and why she encourages others to create a beautiful and diverse crafting community. Question and answer to follow the presentation.
