Seating is first come, first served.

A person's "creative lineage" is something like a family tree; only instead of telling you who married whom and why you've inherited brown eyes and curly hair, it suggests reasons you may have a fondness for fine handwork or a knack for perfect set-in sleeves. It traces the passions, lives, and talents of those who helped to make you the creative soul you are–and researching it can be fascinating, illuminating, and sometimes shocking. In this talk, Franklin Habit tells the funny, romantic, heartbreaking stories of his first teachers–all women in his family; and demonstrates the creative process behind the series of shawl designs they inspired.

There will be a special vendor market preview from 7:30 - 9:00pm for keynote ticket holders only.
