    In Connection With The 5 R's: Race, Rights, Religion, Reduction, & Resiliency

    in Lifestyle

    This month, The Clarkie-Connection turns its focus on to several topics that may seem disparate but, actually, are not so dissimilar or unrelated.  We'll begin with an historical perspective, taking a brief look at the famed "Niagara Falls Conference" of 1905 and how that led to the formation of the NAACP, before moving on to the adoption of the 14th amendment and how it addressed citizenship rights and equal protection of the laws.  This will lead, directly, into a discussion of The Hobby Lobby case - currently in the news and, more specifically, the Supreme Court - and how that is shaping the national debate on religious freedom in America.  We'll then pick up where we left off last month in our ongoing discussion of The State of Education in America by looking at the staggering reductions in matriculations of minority students within NYC's three specialized schools.  Thirdly, we'll be shining a spotlight on how resiliency through racial/cultural identity, particularly for African-American youth, can positively impact academic achievement and success.  Join us for a complex series of topical issues and see how we deftly interweave them over the course of the hour!  Don't Miss This One! ~

    Anne Kuo Lukito redux

    in Knitting

    On this re-recorded edition of Fiber Hooligan (02/11/14) my guest is Anne Kuo Lukito. Though she’s been crafting & sewing all her life, Anne did not get into knitting until mid-2006. After teaching herself, she could not stop thinking about knitting and began making up patterns almost immediately. In early 2008, she submitted a few designs for publication and by late 2008, her designs appeared in Knitty, Interweave Knits & in 101 Luxury One-Skein Wonders. Since then, Anne has designed for several yarn companies and her work has also appeared in many other publications, including several books and magazines like Twist Collective and Knitscene. Her designs generally have a modern and fresh sensibility with a fun and innovative twist.


    One of the things Anne really enjoys is the opportunity to share and exchange knowledge with other knitters and with students. Anne teaches at knitting shows (including STITCHES), yarn shops, guilds and has also presented at a BlogHer conference and at Craftcation. Anne continues to develop her self-published designs under her independent design label and she also operates a small boutique distributorship, Crafty Diversions, which represents highly talented knitting designers in distributing their patterns and products to yarn shops. Anne’s patterns, tutorials and blog can be found on her own website.

    Romi Hill

    in Knitting

    On the next edition of Fiber Hooligan (01/20/14) my guest will be Rosemary Hill from Designs by Romi.


    Romi was born into a crocheting family and learned in preschool, but the call of the needles was always strong, and her mother finally relented & taught her to knit as well. It was love at first stitch. She knit off & on until 2002, when she resumed knitting passionately after a long hiatus, discovering the internet knitting community in the process. Learning to knit lace prompted the 2005 founding of her company, Designs by Romi, selling handmade shawl pins & sweater closures.


    She is currently working on a lace book for Interweave and 2 subscriptions: her latest Small Shawl eBook (Y4, also an app!) and The Great Oddments Knitdown. Her patterns have appeared in books, Interweave Knits, Knitscene, Knitty, and Twist Collective. Interweave Press published her first book: Elements of Style: Knit + Crochet Jewelry in late 2008.


    We’ll be talking about all of this as well as her Craftsy class!


    Besides being uber talented, Romi is also one of the sweetest people you could meet. I hope you’ll join us for this show.

    Amy Herzog

    in Knitting

    On the next edition of Fiber Hooligan (12/09/13) my guest will be the very talented Amy Herzog.


    Amy is passionate about sweaters people love to wear. She is the author of Knit to Flatter and designs sweaters that flatter the figure and are easy to modify. She is also a knitting expert on American Public Television’s “Knit and Crochet Now”. She teaches classes across the country and on craftsy.com, and her figure-flattering pattern designs have been published in Twist Collective, Knitscene, Interweave Knits, Knitty, and more.


    After several years of teaching knitting classes, she realized that knitters will skip modification math if they can but would really like to wear sweaters that fit them well. So she created CustomFit, a website that produces custom sweater patterns. It can be found at customfit.makewearlove.com.


    Amy will be with us to talk about all of that, the Opening Day presentation she's planning for STITCHES South, and much more.  This will be a great show. I hope you'll join us.
