A group of novice and expert knitters, fiber artists, weavers, and spinners will meet at Think Long Island First for a few hours of pattern swapping, exchanging ideas, and just pure fun. The event is open to public so come along with your hooks and needles.
A similar event was held last year to a great success. In addition to knitting and crocheting attendees got a chance to try their hands at spinning and weaving - Donna Lee Trunk brought a portable loom, Carrie Wood set up a spinning wheel.
It's a potluck event so please bring a small dish (really small) to share with other guests. We will have limited storage and heating abilities so make something uncomplicated.
