Media Link: MFKR Photo Mantage (5:32)
There's a million crafters in Fiber City and we've all got a yarn to spin.
For this video supplement, I've created a photo MAN-tage of images from the Men's Fall Knitting Retreat from 2008 & 2009
An original composition called "Long Live Happiness" from the band "A Night of Serious Drinking" was used for this video. The band is sadly no longer making music, but I still love this song, and their work in general, to pieces. I thought the lyrics were eerily appropriate for the photo mantage, so we've placed them in the video piece
Performed by A Night of Serious Drinking:
DON'T FORGET => The first ever Fiber Beat SCHOLARSHIP for Episode No. 10 / MFKR 2010
This year, the Men's Fall Knitting Retreat will be held just outside of Seattle in the City of Federal Way at the Dumas Bay Centre. We still have regular paid slots available with all the costing details on Ravelry and on Flickr. However, we are thrilled to announce have a special scholarship to the Men's Fall Knitting Retreat, provided by XRX, Inc. This scholarship includes full retreat fees plus a stipend of $400 for travel and transportation. You can nominate a friend, a family member or yourself. Please confirm that your person has agreed to be entered into the nomination process. A sample nomination will be the first entry in the comments section of the audio episode.
One scholarship recipient will be selected from all the nominations by a panel of Men's Knitting Retreat coordinators (Joe Wilcox, Ted Myatt, James Herbison & myself). DEADLINE FOR ENTERING IS August 6, 2010.
