What we're mending

The Yellow Thread Society is New York's first (almost) monthly get-together featuring women in games. We're knitting together a diverse, adventurous and inclusive game community were women don't need to shout to be heard. Come meet others in the field and listen to experienced women creators share their stories of triumph, tribulation and personal fulfillment working in games. People of all genders welcome to attend.
(Also yarn bombing*.)
