Event Details

All Kinds of Fisherman’s Mittens: Talk and Workshop

Robin Hansen, teacher

Robin Hansen will bring her collection of mittens from around the world and speak on the history and traditions of knitting mittens and their importance to fishermen. She will teach the old-time Maine cast-on and help you to knit the mittens of your dreams, whether they be European or down home Maine. We will have Robin’s new knitting book Ultimate Mittens, and her book of Maine mittens, Favorite Mittens on hand. Bring your yarn and needles. Lunch provided. At PMM’s Stephen Phillips Memorial Library, Church Street, Searsport. $40 non-members, $35 members, includes lunch.

Robin Hansen is a folklorist and mitten expert who has written articles on knitting for such publications as Interweave Knits, Knitter’s Magazine, and Vogue Knitting. She searches out traditional patterns and tests, clarifies, and modifies them to make them accessible to today’s knitters. She is the author of several knitting books. Robin lives with her family in West Bath, Maine.

Thank you to our sponsoring yarn shops!  Heavenly Socks, Over the Rainbow, Purple Fleece

Penobscot Marine Museum

Penobscot Marine Museum has the feel of a 19th Maine village. Our lovely campus of ten buildings is in the charming town of Searsport on Penobscot Bay. Our ship captain’s house is beautifully furnished with antiques from around the world. Another ship captain’s house displays our extensive collection of 19th century marine paintings, scrimshaw, ship models, and China Trade objects. We have three 19th century barns displaying over fifty classic small water craft including lobster boats, dories, and canoes. Two buildings are filled with hands-on maritime activities for kids. Outside on our green you can raise and lower a ship’s mast!


Check our website for exhibit, lectures and workshops through the year. The PMM campus is open from late May through late October, but our Gallery has special exhibits, lectures and workshops throughout the winter and spring, and our Museum Store and Framer remain open Thursday through Saturday.
