More about Knit Together: “Two cultures knit together by one faith” Ginny and James Rowland have close-knit ties with many Amishfamilies in the small-town of Smickburg, PA. But these ties are threatened to unravel… Ginny’s photographer brother, Joseph, comes up from Pittsburgh to capture Amish farm scenes, but instead captures the heart of an Amish woman, Katie Byler. A shunned Amish man finds refuge in the Rowland’s Baptist Church. The Bishop discovers his son is dating the Rowland’s daughter. Will Granny Weaver’s knitting circle, that Ginny and other Englishers attend, be able to bring harmony through their love and faith?
