Library Yarns!

Come embellish the Falmouth Public Library with kniffiti (knit graffiti) and other unique yarn creations!  Join our 8-week mission in which we’ll knit, crochet, wrap, weave, braid and whatever else you can think of doing with yarn.  In the final meeting we’ll install our custom creations inside the library for a colorful, whimsical display! 

If you have heard of “yarn bombing,” then you have an idea of what we’ll be doing – covering everyday objects with crazy cozies.  Unlike most yarn bombing projects, we won’t all be making the same thing; rather, each person can create whatever piques his or her interest, large, small, plain or fancy.  This is an opportunity to meet other yarn crafters, brighten up the library and try new stitches, yarns and techniques.  You’ll have the time, space and yarn to explore without the pressure of having to make something perfect.  Yarn will be supplied and an experienced knitter will be on hand to help with knitting questions.  However, lessons are not included.  Bring your own needles, hooks and other tools.  This program is appropriate for teens and adults.

We will meet Saturdays from 10:00 am to Noon, January 9 – February 27, 2016 at the Falmouth Public Library.  During the first seven meetings we will work on our projects and during the final meeting, we will install them in the library for one month.  After the exhibit is taken down, participants may take home their projects.  Registration is requested, but not required.  Please contact the reference department with questions or to sign up:  508-457-2555 ext. 6 or info@falmouthpubliclibrary.org.
