Springville Road Crafters to Begin Warm Up America Projects—A Modern Day Crafting Bee
Warm Up America is an organization that pairs America’s knitters and crocheters with people who need warm blankets or accessories during the cold months of the year.
The Coffee, Conversation and Crafts group at the Springville Road Library will be working together to crochet and knit caps, afghans, scarves, etc., for local charities to pass along to people in need.
We’ll begin by stitching 7” x 9” blocks, which we’ll then join to form complete afghans. There will be written patterns available, as well as instructions and templates. If you already crochet or knit, please join us! If you don’t know how, but would like to learn, we invite you to come and we’ll teach you. Hands on instruction will be provided free, as well as yarn, crochet hooks, and needles. If you have your own scraps and notions, you are welcome to bring them along, too. It’s a great way to use up scraps of yarn left over from previous projects, and making the blocks is excellent practice for the beginning crafter.
Our group of fun loving women (and men) meet every Monday from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in the meeting room at the Springville Road Library. We always have crafts to work on, coffee and snacks to enjoy, and lots of folks to chat with as you work or just visit. You don’t have to work on the featured craft, you can bring you own project or just sit back and enjoy the company.
For more information, see the Springville Road Library Facebook page or call Kelly Laney at 226-4083.
