Book Launch & call for submission

Hazel Myers “Snot and Tears”

Hazel Myers announces the launch of K n i t d o w n s.v.p.

Sunday, April 1st 2007, from 1-4pm.

La Cornetteria, 6528 blvd St. Laurent (between Beaubien & St. Zotique).

"Knitdown s.v.p. is an art book /auxiliary industry manual consisting

of drawings on sticky notes produced over the four years Hazel Meyer

worked as a fabric designer at a circular-knit mill in Montréal. The term

Knitdown s.v.p. is textile industry jargon for “a sample of a few meters

please”, and was a phrase written countless times by Hazel Meyer as she exchanged

hundreds of these notes with the knitters that worked in the conjoining

mill. Knitdown s.v.p is a collection of 197 of these drawn requests

that were stealthily collected and saved by her co-worker, Ann Smith, and

presented to Hazel upon her resignation."

Hazel Myers “Snot and Tears” was seen in the HAND FACE BODY show last October at the Gladstone Hotel in Toronto
