Knit and Nibble on tour - WoolNEss in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne

Dr Thomas Ernst and James McIntosh co-authors of Knit and Nibble are speaking at WoolNEss this year.

About WoolNEss

WoolNEss is a yarn festival with an aim at it's core to celebrate the benefits of creativity on mental, physical and emotional wellbeing.

At the heart of WoolNEss is a fantastic wool festival with an emphasis to encourage people to get more from their crafting than just a finished product.

It's all about the wellness us knitters feel when we knit.

WoolNEss takes place over a weekend 2-4th August 2019 at the Life Science Centre in Newcastle upon Tyne.

What have Dr Ernst and James planned?

It's all a bit hush hush for now. However, we promise you a fun event and different from our normal talks.

Dr Ernst and James will be entertaining the masses about the story behind Knit and Nibble and how one stitch at a time helped James to knit myself back together after depression while Dr Ernst had to overcome the transformation of his home from quiet flat to a yarn store!

It's a story of love, adversity, stitches, self discovery and what life is like when faced with an illness. It won't be a doom and gloom afternoon ... Dr Thoma and James promise a time of laughter, anecdotes, the reality of depression and how James came through the other side, one stitch at a time.

They say laughter is the best medicine, combine that with knitting and honesty about one's feelings and we have a great potion for regaining self-worth to overcome depression.

When 3rd August 2019
