Sally Melville – Why We Do What We Do-The Importance of Working With Our Hands
This presentation speaks to what knitting (or other hand work) offers—-from alleviating boredom, to making us happy, to promoting good brain health, to contributing to our economic recovery. Participants will see examples of knitting, although this talk applies to all hand work. It is a wonderful feeling to understand why we love to do what we do–and why everyone should be thusly engaged!
