Family Trunk Project Trunk Show

Have you heard about Emily Johnson’s Family Trunk Project? It’s an amazing project, blending knitting and genealogy, a beautiful homage to one woman’s family. Go on, check it out. Browse the pages. Read the stories. Drool over the projects. Then come back here.


Did you enjoy your time at Emily’s? Then please join us on Friday, October 9th for a reception to kick off a week-and-a-half-long trunk show with her work. Emily is sharing all the completed garments from her Family Trunk Project with us, and with you. You don’t want to miss this amazing testament to one American family and the power of knitting as an art form that is as meaningful as it is practical. The reception begins at 5pm so come on by, nibble on some treats, meet Emily, and take a gander at her beautiful designs. If you can’t come to the reception, don’t worry – we’ll have the Trunk Show for almost 2 weeks. But do try to come (and remember that it’s the first day of our BIG FALL SALE, too)!
