THIS CLASS IS FULL

knitHave you ever wanted to learn to knit, but don’t have the tools and aren’t sure who to ask? This program is for you! Several librarians, who happen to be veteran knitters, will lead a workshop about how to knit, from casting on to casting off. The class will work together on the same project, and all materials will be provided in a kit for $5.00. After you’ve taken the Learn to Knit Class you’ll be able to join us later in the month for Stitch Therapy on March 15th to continue working on your project.

Space is very limited, so call 781-769-0200 x110 or email norprograms@minlib.net to sign up or if you have any questions! Participants must be 14 years of age or older.
