This is an informal group of come-as-you-are knitters and crocheters that meet twice a month to share their love of needle arts. There is NO INSTRUCTOR. (This is a social group, not a classroom.)
Knit & Crochet meets in the second-floor Lounge on the following Saturdays from 11am-1pm:
- April 29
May 1-31, Ages 12-19
This competition will last the month of May. The 2 winning bookmarks will be color copied and given out to all teens participating in the Summer Learning Club from June 1 - August 30. Using the theme, Build a Better World design one side of the bookmark using whatever medium you’d like but; it must be flat enough to be photocopied and used as a bookmark. Two age groups: 12-15, 16-19. Remember to write your name, age, & phone number on the back! Bookmarks must measure 6-3/4 inches by 2-1/2 inches. Blank bookmarks are available at the Youth Desk or you may print one yourself.
