2:00 PM to 4:00 PM Carnegie Hall Stitch 'n Bitch started after World War II for people (mainly women at that point) to knit and talk in organized groups. Modern day Stitch n' Bitch knitting groups have emerged in cities around the world. The phenomenon has been analyzed by scholars as an expression of resistance to major political, social and technological events. The Stitch ‘n Bitch movement is a means of asserting women’s domestic work in public spaces. Groups of women and men on university campuses have also followed the trends in order to resist the taboo representation of the traditional woman, make a statement against consumerism, and reclaim the value of domestic arts and crafts.
