Hey guys/gals/non-binary pals!
Ross, from the Wee Yarn Company, and I (Aiden from Undercover Otter) are inviting you to an online hangout/launch event/cast-on party/goss sesh on September 1st, 2023 at 8 pm CET. Join us for the official start of the #queerdomal2023 and dive into a world of crafts, conversations, and camaraderie, all from the comfort of your own space.
If you’re anything like me (and I know I am) you probably like the idea of being social, but hate the idea of wearing actual pants. Then this is perfect. You can wear whatever the hell you want, surround yourself with your fave snacks (that you don’t have to share!!!) and just vibe with us in a virtual setting.
Date: Friday, September 1st, 2023
Event Time: We start at 8 pm CET and will open up the room around 7.45
Platform: Google Meet video call link will be announced by Aiden on Instagram on the day of the stream.
You don’t need a Google account to join this party, provided you join it through the link and use a web browser. If you use the Google Meet app on mobile, you will be prompted to sign in.
Age restriction: Since Ross and Aiden are foul-mouthed people, this party will be for people 18 years and older. The language used will be mainly English.
Meet Your Hosts:
Ross and Aiden, the passionate minds behind the Queerdo Collection, are excited to share their shenanigans and creative ventures with you.
Ross Alexander (he/him) is originally from Scotland, where sheep outnumber the people, so yarn must be in his DNA. Ross, like many other independent dyers, began The Wee Yarn Company from the comfort of his own home. He and his partner converted their shed into a cozy dye studio where he now creates richly saturated colorways that evoke a moody atmosphere.
Aiden Sielias (they/them) was born and raised in Amsterdam. This is where they started Undercover Otter in 2011 in a tiny side room of their apartment. Their colorways are known for their vibrant, intense hues and unique names, drawing inspiration from genre cinema and video games.
What are we doing?
We’ll be chatting about our crafts, showing off some of our projects, and asking you all about yours. There will also be an opportunity to ask us questions.
While we’re calling this a cast-on party, it’s not mandatory to cast on or start your craft at the moment of streaming. Counting with a chatroom full of people is a special hell we don’t wish upon anyone, so feel free to join in on the fun, even without a project. This is also not exclusive to fiber crafts. If you want to join in while you’re working on an epic oil painting or arranging some music on the side, you are welcome.
Whether you’re actively creating or simply looking to share your work, we can’t wait to see what you bring to the table. Participate as much or as little as you like. Ask questions, share your thoughts, or simply soak in the creative energy – it’s all up to you.
We can’t wait to see you there!
Ross & Aiden
