An update to catch Jonnet Middleton speaking on Irish TV shortly after 11am tomorrow. Tune in to the Morning Show where Jonnet will be chatting to presenters Sybil and Martin about her no-clothes pledge, her mission to bring in the age of mending, and the Sock Exchange at Absolut Fringe.
We are ready to open our doors to darners at 10am tomorrow, and we’re prepared for crowds.
The Sock Exchange is looking swanky with the last minute addition of a darning chill out zone. Come and do your darning on a lush bean bag!
We’ve been getting heaps of interest all day, with more male potential punters than female. Everyone who hears about the Age of Mending thinks it makes so much sense. Think we’re onto a winner :)
Watch this space for photos, videos and breaking news over the next 4 days, and hope to see you here soon.
Wooo! I’ve been invited onto the couch of Ireland’s only TV breakfast show, the Morning Show on TV3. This is great news for the Sock Exchange and a great leap towards the new Age of Mending!
I’ll invite the presenters to pull off a nifty darn while the show’s on air and entice viewers into the Sock Exchange to help set the world record for darning.
7-9am, Friday 23 September. Overseas darners – I’ll try and put up a link to tune in online.
THE MASS SOCK DROP HAS BEGUN!
People from all over the city of Dublin and far, far beyond are dropping off their holey socks in droves.
TAKE ALL YOUR HOLEY SOCKS TO #afringe BOX OFFICE AT FILMBASE AND COLLECT NEXT WEEK NICELY DARNED! (enc. S.A.E. TO GET THEM BACK)
DROP YOUR HOLEY SOCKS OFF TODAY!
Pop your socks in our SOCK BOX at the Fringe Box Office, Filmbase Foyer, Temple Bar, 10-6, where the Sock Exchange will open on Thursday.
Economist Colm McCarthy looked on. A tax on men’s socks? Now that’s a good money-saving idea.
Darning is just a front. The Sock Exchange is all about economics. Socks are our assets and we try and maximise their value.
The Sock Exchange is looking for an economic correspondent or financial advisor to pontificate on the rise and fall of sock futures, woolly derivatives and sock securities.
sock wears out – value plummets
sock gets darned – value soars
Any financial expert who can expand on this basic economic principal please contact info at jonnetmiddleton.com with a degree of urgency.
