World Wide Knit in Public Day
Better Living through Stitching together!
Stop by and say hello as we bring awareness of the knit and crochet crafts to the public! Members of Yarnia and Yarnia South will be on the front lawn stitching and showing off handmade items. There will be instructors for people who would like to try out either knit or crochet. We will have a yarn swap: bring some yarn you thought you wanted but can't remember why, and be inspired to exchange it for some new-to-you yarn.

There will be refreshments, and give-aways too! No registration required.

The event will be held Saturday, June 8th from 11am until 2pm at the Lower Township Library.
