MIT Stitch & Bitch heard around town?
I doubt it.
Just kidding -- I'm sure they are great people, too!
Here is some clarification about our group:
We are mostly employees of MIT. We come from all different departments - some academic, some administrative, and we have varying job descriptions. Our common thread (pun intended) is knitting and crocheting. At this point, we don't have any students in the group (although anyone is welcome!) and no faculty, or engineers, as far as I know.
