Events & Announcements


The difficult decision to cancel the postponed nit in Public event opened way for a new virtual opportunity.  Patric Richardson and Karin Miller Zoomed in with a Laundry Camp!!  Yes, a Laundry Camp!  We had a delightful time, learned much, laughed, and invited the Laundry Guru (Patric) and award-winning author (Karin) into our homes for a most unusual evening!  Certainly a first for the area!!

Watch for some surprises for Knitting in Public.  A radical turn!  Check out facebook.com/artsyknits for updates.

Alas, Does a Bear Knit in the Woods had to be postponed again due to Covid 19.  It shall be rescheduled once again once it is safe to do so.  Questions and projects are accumulating, and we are anxious to gather again.

The Genesee Valley Handspinners Guild  made the difficult, but prudent decision, to cancel the event for this September.  This has been a very hard year for fiber vendors.  Thanks to the internet and listings by festivals, you can still find local sources.

Join us for our 8th annual Worldwide Knitting in Public Day in Galton's John J. Collins Park.  We have rescheduled for Saturday, August 29 at 10 am, as long as it is safe by then.  If not, we plan some virtual events.   More surprises!  Again, all ages are welcome.  Knitters, crocheters, spinners, weavers, string art, let your i magination lead you!
Two legged and four legged creatures all participate!  Once again, your presence benefits the Galeton Public Library.

We hope to reschedule the 19th for later this year.  Stay tuned and check in with me if you are interested.
