Stitchlinks Memory study at I Knit Weekender

Betsan from www.stitchlinks.org will be with us at the Weekender. One of the projects Betsan is working on is a knitting related study about memory.

Betsan has been working on the project with volunteers throughout the summer in Cardiff. Many potential volunteers are based in London and were unable to make it to Cardiff on the designated dates. Betsan has a message for you, whether you live in London or not...

Cardiff University and Stitchlinks have recently carried out a study on knitting and memory. Results were interesting but need to be further corroborated by testing 15-20 more volunteers. When we initially put a call out for volunteers there were many from London who were unable to travel to Cardiff, and others who weren’t able to attend during the week.

I Knit has very generously offered us two rooms at the I Knit Weekender on Saturday 11th September where we will be able to extend the knitting and memory study. If you can spare 75 minutes of your time, please get in touch with Betsan Corkhill at Betsan@stitchlinks.com for an appointment time.

Volunteers will get free entry to the I Knit Weekender for Saturday 11th. Hope you can help us out.
