Guest speaker, Dr. Cecilia Macheski, who was the keynote speaker at the Eleanor Roosevelt Knit-In this year, will present details about knitting in literature, suitable for avid knitters or book club members. She will knit with the group and informally address attendees at various times throughout the event.
This is the 3rd year “Knit Us As One” has been a registered participant in the WWKIP event. This year’s theme will focus on charity knitting, knitting in literature, and the chance to make a small project using materials/instructions provided to ‘yarn bomb’ the local gathering of ‘resist’ protest located near Beacon’s Visitor’s, which is down the street from the church. A special appearance by “St. Andie”, the knitting patron made by participants in 2016, will inspire attendees to knit and crochet with community members. The event will occur rain or shine. There are chairs, but you can bring your own for outdoor seating, if you prefer. Bring any drinks or food you may require. Some beverages and light snack will be available. Bring personal projects, yarn, needles.
