On Nov. 14, the yearly Knitting for Peace event, a part of International Education Week, took place on the fifth floor of Franklin D. Schurz Library. Fruit, naan bread and cookies were offered as refreshments.
Knitting for Peace, as Director of Admissions and International Students Connie Peterson Miller explains, is a way to consider and reconnect with how knitting and textiles have played a role in American history as well as cultures across the world.
She gave a brief presentation on how the needle and yarn have helped build community by comforting the sick, bringing peace under tumultuous times and helping to create change.
