Knitting History Virtual AGM & Conference 2020: 'From Fleece to Fashion: researching the history of knitted textiles in Scotland' – Lynn Abrams, University of Glasgow with host and KHF Chair, Sandy Black

Virtual Knitting History Conference 2020

Knitting History Forum would like to thank everyone, our excellent speakers, members, delegates and KHF friends old and new, for taking part in our first ever virtual AGM & Conference and for making it so enjoyable and interesting. The event was entirely online this year, perhaps the first virtual knitting history conference of its kind in the world but certainly, we hope, not the last! We would also like to express our thanks to KHF Chair Sandy Black and Treasurer Tricia Basham, who worked particularly hard both behind the scenes and onscreen on the day hosting the meeting. Speakers and delegates alike came from around the world, many joining us bright and early from time zones where lesser mortals were still asleep, yet all were fully engaged and enthusiastic. Questions and comments were insightful and discussion lively as ever, and though it was not possible to meet in person, this event brought us together, our shared interest creating sense of community and a buzz we hope will continue.

We look forward to seeing you all again in the future and though the conference has ended, you can still contribute and join in the conversation online:
