Willow Tree Knitters

Please join us in the formation of a new knitting group at the Willow Tree Family Center.  This group is for everyone who knits (or chrochets) or wants to learn.  If you are pregnant or a new mom or grandma (or dad even!) who wants to learn to knit for your baby, this is the perfect way to learn!  It's always more fun to knit with friends and a cup of coffee or tea.  Extra needles and yarn will be available for practice.

This group will meet the 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month from 1pm-4pm.  

Everyone is welcome.  Bring a friend!
