In 2006, husband and wife team Eric and CAT set out to create a show that would marry CAT’s talents in needle arts and technology with Eric’s expertise in broadcast video production. The result was Let’s Knit2gether, a show about knitting and related fiber arts. The how-to demonstrations hosted by CAT cover intermediate to advanced techniques including socks, blocking, felting, knitting with ribbon, lace knitting, knitting with wire, etc. Special “field trip” episodes take the viewer to knitting and fiber related events to experience the passion and excitement of fiber arts culture. Shot entirely in High Definition, Let’s Knit2gether rivals PBS and the Discovery Channel for superior production values and enjoyable content.
CAT’s Bio Renaissance woman CAT Susch is a technology architect by trade, a composer/musician and needle artist by obsession. Spanning a 20 year career in technology, CAT has worked in Consulting, financial services and most recently at an “old” media company that’s transitioning into a “new” media company. Since childhood, CAT has been an avid needle artist crafting beautiful creations, and teaching at local craft stores and “stitch and bitch” groups around her home in the NY suburbs. With filmmaker husband Eric, they work together to marry CAT’s talents in needle arts / technology with Eric’s expertise in film/video production. The result is the very popular niche online video show Let’s Knit2gether.
