Knit So As to Turn Water: The History of New England’s Maritime Knitting

Date: 11/03/2023
Time: 3:30 pm-4:30 pm

Join the Norfolk knitting circle to find out more about the history of maritime knitting. Rebecca Bayreuther Donohue will give a powerpoint presentation and bring samples which will be passed around during the program.

For over twenty years, Rebecca built research and programming at a major maritime museum. Now she practices and teaches living history in a variety of time periods and media, including the recreation of period clothing, material culture, lifestyles, and events. A lifelong resident of the southeastern Connecticut shoreline, Rebecca is happiest with a set of knitting needles, a pair of oars, or a primary source in her hands.
