Libraries aren’t just for books any more. Every Saturday morning, at my local library, I am reminded of the old quilting bees. A small group of knitters and crocheters, under the guidance of two experts, get together to work on knitting projects for themselves and charities. They happily welcome new enthusiasts. I went there for the first time in July and found a welcoming group who were working on a variety of individual projects and learning new stitches. They meet every Saturday for about 2 hours to share tips and work on their skills. Some of them knit for charities and we discussed how they decide on which charity to knit for. This past Saturday one of the knitters brought in a pink rabbit that she made at the last Big Apple Knitters Guild meeting and shared the instructions with us. One of my friends is a member of a “Grandmother’s Club” that knits and crochets only for charity and are happy to accept any donations of excess yarns from people to use for this worthwhile endeavor. Do you belong to such a group? Share your experiences with us.
