Knitting Circle

We’re starting a new monthly program at the Johnson City Public Library–a knitting circle from 4:00-6:00 PM on the third Friday of every month. All skill levels are welcome, and the group will meet in the Buffalo Mountain Room. Lisa Krekelberg, adult services librarian, says the program developed due to the success of previous knitting days. “We participated in ‘knit in public’ day this spring, so we had another event this fall. The response to these was so enthusiastic we knew we had to start a monthly program!”

Attendees should bring their own materials, but aren’t limited to knitting. Lisa continues, “knitting, crocheting, cross-stitch–anything like that is welcome here.” She thinks people will enjoy the program because it’s a chance to bond over a traditional skill. “It’s really fun to get together like this. You get companionship and a chance to see other people. Plus you can get help on your current project or inspiration for your next project!”

Best of all, it’s a chance to learn. “We’ll have books available on knitting and knitting patterns as well” Lisa says. “This is a great chance to learn, share, and build a community.”
