Knitting Circle - Potluck Lunch, Nov. 5, 11am-2pm

Knitting Circle - Potluck Lunch
Saturday, November 5th, 11 am - 2 pm
A group of novice and expert knitters, fiber artists, weavers, and spinners will meet at the store for a few hours of pattern swapping, exchanging ideas, and just pure fun. The event is open to public so join us with your hooks and needles.
We held a similar event last year to a great success. In addition to knitting and crocheting we got a chance to try our hands at spinning and weaving - Donna Lee Trunk brought a portable loom, Carrie Wood set up a spinning wheel.
It's a potluck event so please bring a small dish (really small) to share with other guests. We will have limited storage and heating abilities so make is something uncomplicated.
