Makers Nite | Meet Anna Hrachovec of Mochimochi Land
Nov 7, 2023
From 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm
Online via Zoom
Meet Anna Hrachovec, the creative force behind Mochimochi Land and author of the new book, Catside Up, Catside Down!
The characters that inhabit Mochimochi Land are original designs by Anna Hrachovec, a knitter who lives in Chicago. Anna finds inspiration in characters like Hello Kitty, TV shows like Pee-Wee's Playhouse, and illustrators like Mary Blair. Anna's knitted toys have been seen on Nickelodeon, featured on The Martha Stewart Show (twice), and featured in the Chicago Tribune and on BuzzFeed, among other publications. She has written five books of knitting patterns. Her first picture book, Catside Up, Catside Down, is now available for preorder.
You can find Mochimochi Land kits at these fine retailers.
The Mochimochi Shop features Anna's downloadable patterns, kits, and tiny hand-knitted friends.
When she's not designing patterns to share with fellow crafters, Anna creates artwork and animations with her knitted world, projects that have been exhibited around the US, in Europe, and Asia. You can find her art at annahrachovec.com.
