Free Knitting + Crochet Lessons For Quincy Kids

Flickr photo by meknits
Know of any children ages 8-13, who are Quincy residents, and who might be interested in learning to knit or crochet? Are you an adult who'd like to teach kids how to knit or crochet?

A monthly program for children, INTRODUCTION TO KNITTING & CROCHET, is starting on Saturday, February 26, 2011, at the Thomas Crane Public Library in Quincy, Massachusetts. Basic supplies for the first project will be donated by the Needle Arts Mentoring Program, a project of Helping Hands Foundation, Inc.

To join the class, you must sign up in advance. Register online, call the Children's Room at 617-376-2411, or stop by the library in person.

If you'd like to volunteer to teach, contact Kimberly by email at, by phone at 781-974-6559 or stop by the Children's Room and ask for Julie.

This sounds like a really fun activity for the kids and the adults too!

That is sooo sweet! I just love knitting & crochet. And it's wonderful to see young kids get a chance to learn these skills and create beautiful, useful things. Oh, and loved the cookies from you previous post... YUM! Happy Valentine's Day, Lisa ((HUGS))

tracy - Isn't it!? They'll have the best time and learn a skill, so they can actually make things for their whole lives. I hope they get a lot of participants. I wish they had a free one for adults!
