The Sock Exchange at ABSOLUT Fringe 2011, Dublin



The Sock Exchange at ABSOLUT Fringe 2011

22 to 25 September 2011

Dare to darn and claim your free ‘Darning needle for life’ in this mass darning event as part of Year of Craft 2011

Darn your way out of the economic crisis and subvert your addiction to short-term shopping by spreading the joy of making and mending together. Join other unlikely darners to transform your unloved woolly assets and build up your resilience for the future. With a few slick woolly licks or maverick mends, your newly desirable, durable socks will be the envy of all. Darn for survival, darn for joy!


Find the Sock Exchange in the heart of the Dublin Fringe throughout the last four days of the festival.

We must root out all the holey socks from the city of Dublin. No chest of drawers must be left unturned.
In these sparse times holey socks are valuable commodities forecast to experience steady economic growth in the next quarter. Invest in sock futures. Watch the value of your socks rise. The more they are darned, the more they are valued. That’s the power of bodkin economics. Find out more here: http://futuremenders.wordpress.com/2011/09/08/wanted-holey-socks/

Best of luck to everyone involved, after organising the world record in Roscommon this year I know what a huge undertaking this is! Wish I could make it but I'm tied up with workshops in Roscommon. Michelle
