Charity: Knitters and Crocheters Care
We're excited to have Knitters and Crocheters Care coming to the event to coordinate some charity knitting. We'll have some interactive crafting during the event: bring squares for children and baby blankets and we'll assemble 'em into blankets while we are there. Squares should be either 7" by 9", or 8" square. There will be donated yarn on hand if you want to work on this project. You are also welcome to bring extra yarn or finished items for donation - baby hats, animal blankets, memory pillows ... just about anything is welcome.
Our free classes will be at the introductory level, so come prepared to pick up a new skill. We'll have sessions on knitting, crochet, and spinning on a drop spindle. Classes will be announced before they begin, and will be limited by space availability at our class tables on a first come, first served basis. We will have yarn, needles and some hooks available, but you will need to provide your own spindle and fiber for the spinning class. Several vendors will have spindles available for purchase at the event.
Space and weather permitting, we will be presenting some informal demonstrations during the event as well. Watch yarn be created before your eyes, or try your hand at spinning on a wheel or drop spindle. We plan to have several different models available for you to look at, and our spinning instructor would be happy to discuss lessons if you get hooked.
