Gatherings

Striped socksYear round on Tuesday afternoons from 1-4pm, you will find members of our fiber community gathered in the Tesseract to knit, rain or shine. Our community of fiber artists includes several very talented knitters who design patterns, beginner knitters on their first projects, and all the people in between. It is a drop in kind of thing, so plan to join us sometime.
