Today’s hero: Loes Veenstra
You must see this video, it makes me soooo very happy!
Since 1955, Loes Veenstra has knitted over 500 sweaters that she stored in cardboard boxes in her home at 2e Carnissestraat in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. The sweaters have never been worn.
Museum Rotterdam discovered the collection, and with Wandschappen invited designer Christien Meindertsma to develop a book, Het Verzameld breiwerk van Loes Veenstra uit de 2e Carnissestraat.
Droog will present the book along with a selection of sweaters from September 27th until October 31st. The sweaters and the book will be available for purchase. Hurray!
