Knitting a Community - One Stitch at a Time!
Mary Peckiconis loves knitting. Fueled by this love, in April 2011, she decided to book a meeting room in the library and invite others to join her. "I've heard you can get a room here and not pay for it as long as you do something for the community." This is how the Upper NW Knitters, a bi-monthly gathering of dedicated and gregarious knitters at the Tenley - Friendship Library was born.
"I invite people to come twice a month, one Tuesday and one Thursday. We usually have 12 -24 people. Some already know how to knit and some want to learn how to knit and some just bring their knitting problems and we knit for two hours." All are welcome. Mary brings supplies so even if new to the craft, a person can try it out in a supportive and fun environment.
"It's surprises me how many people want to learn to knit, how many people show up and how many people can knit after one visit. Because it's not that hard and it brings people a lot of peace." Want to learn to knit and crochet? Check out the calendar for the next date. We look forward to knit with you.
