Sometimes it's easier to complete a project when you have someone else around to hold you accountable—whether that's a boss, a teacher, or just a friend.

This can be especially true in the crafting world for those who enjoy making things for themselves or those they love. Sitting with someone else, working on a task, whether a conversation happens or not, can be so helpful in successfully getting something done. 

A number of our patrons have asked us if we have a crochet group, and while we wanted to meet an obvious need in our community, we didn't want to limit it to just one type of craft or make other crafters feel unwelcome.

The Five Points Yarn Club is open to fiber-arts crafters of all ages, no matter their skill level. The only requirement is that your craft involves yarn or thread, but that can cover a host of crafts, including but not limited to:

  • crochet 
  • knit
  • embroidery
  • cross stitch
  • weaving
  • quilting
  • sewing
  • many more fiber-arts

If you can transport it, you can bring it to Yarn Club. 

Starting on Friday, July 15, the Five Points Yarn Club will be meeting every first and third Friday from 10:00 a.m.—12:00 p.m., in the Five Points West Regional Branch Library's Conference Room. 

We hope to see you there!
