CRAFTIVISM: willowdale candidates stitch n bitch!

Hi Streetknit folk, sympathisers, and the curious,

There is a bi-election going on in Willowdale. We at streetknit may well be inviting the candidates out to learn to knit and do something candidates of all four parties don't do very often while all in the same room together: directly address their positions regarding Toronto's homelessness and the need for social housing.

It's the first ever political all-candidates stch n' btch that we know of, and it will be open to the public, needle-clacking and non-clacking alike. The forum will be open and respectful, and will, as much as can be imagined, focus on the shared non-ideological concern folks have about improving the condition of Toronto's most vulnerable.

The catch is: We need a space, and we need to meet some Willowdale knitters. If anyone is in Willowdale and knows something of the lay of the land, espescially as regards: knitting, please, give me a shout. As well, if you are interested in the event, sitting down, meeting your candidates, and knitting something for Toronto's somewhat sizeable population of neighbours, those without official residence, also, I'd love to hear from you.

Thanks so much.

Ryan K
