Knit the Community

Knitting Circle during the Summer

It was decided at our last group that we simply cannot bear going through the summer without each other. We have set aside the first Friday and July and August to continue our tradition of knitting together. We will meet at Allyn St. beach, weather permitting. If the weather is questionable please email me or call Sara 978-325-0045 to confirm. We hope to have more impromptu get-togethers at the beach, so please feel free to text, call or email us.In any case, mark your calendars for July 7 and August 4 from 4-6pm.
We will resume regular meetings in September. Also, if you are interested in the Maine Yarn Cruise, basically a yarn crawl,(https://www.maineyarncruise.com/)let us know what shops on the list are your priority,and what days are generally better to escape for a day trip with friends.

Knit-a-thon

Love to knit with others and give back at the same time? Join us on March 18th for our bi-annual Knit-A-Thon to raise money for people in need. The event will take place at St. Margaret’s Episcopal Church  located at 95 Court St. in Belfast, from 8am until 8pm. Stay for an hour or two, or spend the day!
