ATKINSON — T/weens are invited to give back to the less fortunate by knitting and crocheting with us on Mondays from 3:00-4:30 p.m. Projects to make and give away may include bunnies knit from squares, hats, sweaters, booties, or squares to contribute to baby blankets. If you already know how to knit or crochet, bring your needles and yarn. If you are new to the craft, come empty-handed so we can tell you what to bring next time and how to get started.
Register t/weens once and their names will stay on for the summer. Please drop us a line or a quick call on weeks they will be away or not participating.
