September 2022 Meeting


Saturday, Sept 10, 1–4 PM

GUEST SPEAKER: Rebecca Kevelson
The Clinton Hill Cashmere Company

Clinton Hill Cashmere Company (CHCC) is the brainchild of knitwear designer Rebecca Kevelson. Rebecca began knitting at the age of 4 and studied costume design and fashion in college. After graduating, she worked at String Yarns for seven years followed by Vogue Knitting for two years.

In 2017, Rebecca launched CHCC, a purveyor of 100% cashmere yarn from one of Italy’s most exclusive mills. CHCC was rated the BEST cashmere yarn by New York Magazine. Accompanying the yarns are exclusive designs with fashion forward, yet classic styling.

Rebecca will show us samples of her newest designs and yarn and will demonstrate how to block and protect our cashmere knitwear so they last long and retain their shape. She will offer a discount on CHCC yarn. A discount code for online purchases will be emailed after the meeting to members who cannot attend.
