Knitting and Crochet for All

Brookline Village Library

TUESDAY, April 4 at 6:30 PM

Do you love to knit or crochet? Or maybe you’ve always wanted to learn? Join us for an evening of crafting at the Library! Your local librarians will be on hand to teach the basics of knitting, crochet, and finger knitting with fun projects for beginners. Already know how to knit or crochet? Bring along your current project to work on, and share what you’re making!

This program is for adults, teens, tweens, and kids ages 7 and up. We strongly encourage caregivers to stay with young children during the program and craft along together.

Want to use the Library’s supply of knitting needles and crochet hooks for more projects? Check them out using your library card as part of our circulating ideaSPACE collection!
