Workshop: WWII and Knit Your Bit

Tom Goehner, curator of education

People were eager to participate in the effort to knit much-needed items for soldiers during World War II. What motivated them? Join us for a quick talk on how the American Red Cross engaged the public through attention-grabbing posters and slogans. The presentation will be followed by questions and answers—as well as a knit-along! Bring your current projects or try your hand at knitting for the first time. We welcome all skill levels to join us.

This program relates to the exhibition Enduring Ideals: Rockwell, Roosevelt & the Four Freedoms, and is part of the museum's weekly Textiles at Twelve series, which explores textile arts and global cultures through films, lectures, gallery talks, and more. Free; no reservations required.
