Handsome Book Party and Happy Hour

Please join us on Friday, October 13, to welcome Michigan designer Pamela Wynne Butler, whose work is innovative, refreshing, even revolutionary. Pam (who moonlights as a professor of gender studies at Notre dame) recently published the e-book Handsome: Man Sweaters for Every Body, which features not only six gorgeous patterns but online tools to customize those patterns to fit our many, various, beautiful bodies. As Pam says, “In a world that arbitrarily divides just about every aspect of life into ‘his’ and ‘hers,’ man sweaters are for everybody, and for every body.”

Come meet Pam, and celebrate our beautiful differences and commonalities! We will enjoy drinks, sweets, conversation, and each other’s company. Spun will hold a door prize drawing for a copy of the Handsome e-book to an attendee toward the evening’s end.

Follow up the party with some good focused effort! On Saturday, October 14, Spun is pleased and excited to offer Fit: Fashion for Every Body, a special workshop in which Pam will walk you through everything you need to know to customize any sweater to fit your body and reflect your personal style. Bring along some sweaters (handknit or otherwise) whose fit you like, for one reason or another, as well as a pattern you might like to customize.
