Stellar Quines has been awarded a Heritage Lottery All Our Stories grant to run Knit Two Together, a project championing the female stories behind the Border’s knitting and textiles industries. As part of this project playwright Sylvia Dow has created Threads, a new play inspired by research, oral history and local knitting circles. Tonight Stellar Quines presents Threads as a script in hand performance for the first time.
The All Our Stories grant programme was launched in 2012 in support of BBC2’s The Great British Story, and aims to encourage everyone to get involved in their heritage. For more information on Knit Two Together, and to read some of the personal stories knitters across the UK have sent in, visit www.knit2.co.uk
