We’re so excited about this short video all about Knit the Bridge – created by Annette Sandberg (of KtB Time-lapse video fame) and sponsored by Sprout! Check it out:
Twice in the past month KtB folks met to sort the railing covers in Michelle’s basement. We de-tangled. We measured. We sorted. We re-bagged. There are 900 of these squeaky clean gems! Now that they’re sorted, we’re wondering what to do with all these things… That’s where you come in! We’re looking for folks to […]
Knit the Bridge was the result of thousands of people’s hard work, but there were a handful of folks who showed up practically every day and put in tremendous energy, making KtB a part – full time volunteer job. We thought it’d be appropriate to give out Spinning Plate Awards (named after our dear summer […]
It’s been over a month since Knit the Bridge came down. My, how time flies!

Including this evening there are only 3 more days to get down and see Knit the Bridge. You heard it correctly, the installation will be coming down this weekend, Saturday and Sunday, September 7-8. If you want to help us take it down, a bittersweet, but very important part of the project please send us […]
You might not have seen Fiberarts Guild and KtB Team member Martha Wasik before, but you definitely know her work. Martha is the graphic design talent behind Knit the Bridge’s print and graphic materials, which have played a critical role in communicating Knit the Bridge’s vision even before the first panels were stitched. If there’s […]
