Add to Calendar 2023-06-19 18:30:00 2023-06-19 20:00:00 America/Chicago Knit Wits: Virtual & In-Person Niles-Maine District Library - Board Room

Knitting and crocheting are good for the mind and body and best enjoyed in a group! Grab some needles and yarn, then come join us in showing off new projects, exchanging ideas and sharing resources!

Each session will have one focused project to inspire participants, but feel free to work on your own creations while enjoying a supportive and fun group of crocheters and knitters!

The group meets twice a month on alternating mornings and evenings. The first Monday of the month meets in the morning and the third Monday of the month meets in the evening. Sessions are both virtual and in-person. 

Newcomers and beginners are always welcome! There's plenty of support and guidance for any level of experience! 

Join us for this year-long crochet adventure. Learn new skills, brush up on some old ones and at the end, you'll have a cozy sampler afghan. We will work on a new square each month.
