Connecting knitters and crocheters to projects and causes.
Grab those needles and crochet hooks! The City of Tavares Public Library is hosting a new fiber arts group which will meet the first and third Tuesday every month from 10:00 a.m. to noon in the Library. Knitters and crocheters, from beginner to expert, and everyone in-between, are welcome to come and join a friendly group of yarnies, helping each other with projects, learning new techniques and having fun!
The basics of knitting and crochet will be taught and practice materials provided for beginners. Learn how to knit that hat you had your eye on or crochet an afghan you absolutely loved. Participate in monthly knit and crochet alongs, learn to read pattern graphs, bring your current project or start a new one, swap patterns, yarn, ideas, and tips. Check out knitting and crochet books from the library’s collection or find new projects and patterns online.
For cause-minded crafters, charity needlework will be done throughout the year with scarves for soldiers, afghans for warriors and veterans, caps and booties for babies and soft prosthetics for breast cancer survivors.
The City of Tavares Public Library is located at 314 N. New Hampshire Ave. Contact the library for more information. This program is free and open to the general public.
