A Stash of One's Own: An Anthology Edited by Clara Parkes

"Yarn is as essential to us as paint is to the artist, flour is to the baker, soil to the gardener..."

How does your yarn stash reflect your place in the universe? New York Times bestselling writer Clara Parkes has collected stories, statistics, essays, and manifestos from a close-knit community of yarn-lovers seeking to answer that question.

Her trademark wit in full bloom, Parkes brings together fascinating stories from all facets of stash-keeping and knitting life. With contributions from knitting and teaching luminaries—including a romance novelist, an illustrator, a PHD-wielding feminist publisher, a globe-trotting textile artist, a licensed clinical social worker, and the people behind the world’s largest collective online stash—the pieces range from comical to earnest, from lighthearted to deeply philosophical. Each writer celebrates the meaning we attribute to yarn, the stories we let it keep, and the place it holds in our homes and in our lives.

Clara Parkes, a celebrated raconteur and highly sought-after teacher, is the author of Knitlandia, The Yarn Whisperer, The Knitter's Book of Yarn, The Knitter's Book of Wool, and The Knitter's Book of Socks. She is also the founder and publisher of Knitter's Review, a weekly e-newsletter that explores the pleasures and subtleties of yarn.

Tuesday, September 19th, 2017 from 6:00-8:00pm, Clara Parkes will be in our store to read from and sign her new book. All are welcome to listen in!
