All About our May Luncheon Key Note Speaker
Casapinka and Our Special Guest Cary Weigner

Casapinka is a design crazed woman who likes pink a little too much and wallpapering things. She is currently taking time off from her job as an ER doctor since they wouldn’t let her use her knitted stethoscope. She has been slowly building up her business and takes great pleasure in seeing what people do with her designs. She is fascinated by civil aviation and spend too much time knitting and listening to air traffic control, especially Kennedy Steve. She is waiting for the minute when the TSA lets down its guard and she can yarn decorate (she’d better not say the “b” (word) an A340.

Special Guest: Cary Weigner of Gigi Bonin Yarns

We will also be joined by Cary Weigner. Cary is a maker/dyer/knitter who also happens to be

married with kids in college. She is a RI native who worked for Harper’s Bazaar magazine and

Universal Pictures in NYC for nearly 20 years before falling in love and returning to RI to marry

and start her family (and the next chapter of her creative life).

Cary fell madly in love with hand dying yarn and decided to make it official. She named her

shop after her great grandmother Gigi Bonin. She was a sweet, stylish French Canadian who

fell in love with Cary’s great grandfather Aime, the owner of several woolen and spinning

mills in Rhode Island. You could say she comes by her love of fiber honestly but what really

drew her to the idea of opening her shop was her love of all things colorful.....characters,

imagination, language and especially yarn.

Cary will bring some samples (mostly Casapinka designs) plus lots of her hand dyed fingering

weight and DK yarn. For more information about Cary and her yarns:
