Yarn Craft Club: Adults

This month, we’re using our knitting machines to make hats to donate! We’ll put all 4 of our knitting machines and our stash of donated yarn to use twice this month in an attempt to crank out as many hats as we can to give to those who need them. We’ll be cranking, cinching, and making pom poms which means even if all of the machines are in use, there will be plenty of other tasks to help with! Join us, no sign up necessary, and let’s see how many hats we can make!

Can’t make it to these classes? Check out our YouTube Channel and enjoy our many craft tutorials or reserve our knitting machines for use at the library so you can craft on your own schedule. 

Wednesday, January 11th @ 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
