Thursday Sit and Knit Night:
Our monthly Sit and Knit night is an informal gathering where knitters, crocheters, lacemakers, and tatters can bring their current WIPS (works in progress) to work on, relax and share a good conversation with others who appreciate the handmade arts.
We meet the last Thursday of every month from 5:30 – 8:00.

“Creativity is inventing, experiencing, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun.”

This is what Kim Green had to say about this class, "As a beginning knitter, I really appreciate the opportunity to ask questions about patterns and to get help with my projects in a supportive environment. Additionally, I'm learning a lot just by being alongside other knitters and hearing their questions and the advise they're given."
