BettaKnit tells you about the workshop at Fuori Expo

Last Sunday, June 14th, two Bettaknit workshops on refashion and reuse were held at Fuori Expo. So much excitement to be among the Prato excellences present at Chiostri dell’Umanitaria, the space dedicated to Tuscany.

Sara Bellinato (founder of the brand Italian-English Nodo-Knotted Things)? Here. Gaia Segattini (aka Vendetta Uncinetta)? Here. Kit with yarn and needles? Ready. I put on my tutu. Really nothing is missing. At the entrance, I welcome the blogger friends: Justine by Le FunkyMamas, Zelda Was a Writer, We Make a Pair, Cappello a Bombetta, Petit Pois Rose.

Off you go! I make a brief introductory speech (do not want to take time to the workshops). I feel someone very important while Justine and Camilla (Was Zelda and Writer) are photographing me!

Nodo opens the dance with its Workshop teaching about how to do its beautiful necklaces. Scenes of panic at the sight of Fettuccine Yarn and knitting needles by Serena (Cappello a Bombetta). By the way, have you read her hilarious blog post?

Paola (We Make a Pair) is knitting quickly. The concentration and attention of participants is maximum. Nice to see knitting with such passion! … And in fact the result is excellent!


After Nodo, its is Gaia Segattini time. Re-fashion of old tshirts. Hard-working hands, armed of Pima Cotton and crochet, started to work, followed by the watchful eye of our Vendetta Uncinetta. And then, it were raining little fruits of all kinds, and the results were really good!
