Introducing Special Guest Rachel Coopey

When we created The Muse Connection, Helen and I talked a lot about what those gatherings might look like. Inspiration ranked highly and we immediately started listing those people and members of the making community we found inspirational. Who would we love to spend an afternoon with? We thought hard about what we wanted people to enjoy at each Volume and you know what we decided?

What if every knit night you went to felt like Ravelry came to life?

No really. That's how the conversation went. What is it that keeps us logging in to Ravelry? For us it's the constant buzz of chatter, the sharing of ideas and inspiration and getting to hear from the people we admire. So the conversation evolved and we started thinking about what we would love to do while eating cake and knitting. The answer was obvious; chat to those creators we've followed for years online and hear a little insight into what they do best: create.

So for the Muse Volume 2 we are so proud and excited to announce that Rachel Coopey will be joining us and sharing her musings on 'Beginnings'. Rachel will be part of the afternoon, chatting with guests and sharing special insights into some of her inspiration and amazing knit knowledge with a talk.

We love Rachel's texture rich aesthetic and her flair for colour. She attended Volume 1 and instantly fell in love with the mismatched tea sets and we knew it was meant to be!
