Have you ever marvelled at an old black and white sweater pattern and longed to make it? Then you tried to read it only to find that the needle sizes are not modern and the sizes aren't inclusive, and the yarn weight isn't given for the yarn that was discontinued years ago? So have I! We are living parallel lives! It's a bit of a nerdy special interest of mine, and there are more of us, vintage nation!
Come spend time with your compatriots as we parse out these old patterns and revive some beauties from the WWII era and beyond!
We will be inviting guests to come and share their expertise, as well! First up, will be Tasha from @Tashacouldmakethat - She has a lovely YouTube channel where she demonstrates her inspiring vintage maker skills, so be sure and check her out! Here's a LINK !
Beverages and Snacks will be on the table, so just bring yourself!
