Knitting Workshop with Welcome Blanket’s Linda Preuss and Joanne Poyourow

August 14 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Free
Are you learning to knit? Have you been knitting for years? On Sunday August 14th from 1:30 to 3:30 PM, please join us for a FREE workshop led by Linda Preuss and Joanne Poyourow who over the years have knitted 9 blankets with a group of friends for the Welcome Blanket project. Come be part of making a Welcome Blanket, meet new friends from the fiber community, and share your immigration stories.

Pattern and yarn will be supplied, although you may also bring yarn from your stash (DK gauge acrylic or superwash-wool, please; any color.) If you have #7 or #8 needles, pop them in your bag as well. Otherwise we’ll have some for you to borrow.

This is a knitting workshop and although we won’t be mentoring crocheting or quilting skills at this workshop, feel free to join us. The more the merrier!

This workshop will be an indoor event. Out of consideration for others we kindly ask that participants wear masks.
