City of Craft co-founder Jen Anisef and tune spinner Tara Bursey may have flown the coop to Hamilton, but their ties to Toronto makers remain strong in their new project, Pulling Strings. Along with co-conspirator Thea Haines, Tara and Jen are hosting a Tea, Talk and Tell this Sunday, 11am-12:30pm at Needlework, Hamilton's creative workspace and cute fabric mecca. The event celebrates the launch of the Pulling Strings Reference Library which features textile publications of all stripes including, zines, how to books, artist monographs, and crazy old patterns.
The ladies of Pulling Strings have invited Toronto and Hamilton based textile heroes Anna Zygowski, Jennifer Kaye, Grant Heaps, and Kate Jackson to do a show and tell from their personal textile libraries and talk a bit about their own practice for the event. Also, there will be tea, coffee and treats. Nurse your City of Craft Spring Show shopping hangover at this cozy and FREE event.
