   12:30 PM  -  2:30 PM Stitch 'n Inch  
   

Adults and teens 14+ are welcome to attend Stitch 'n Inch to learn or practice knitting with Colette Pispisa or crocheting with Betty Joseph in a fun and friendly atmosphere. You are also welcome just to socialize. Their Newark Knitting group page is on Ravelry.com.

Stitch 'n Inch meets every other Saturday. You may bring your own needles or hooks to learn, or borrow straight knitting needles and yarn. Colette is proficient at using double-pointed needles, but if you want to learn how to make hats, socks or both, you'll need to buy yourself a set.

Learn to sew using a sewing machine. All materials and equipment are supplied for your first project, a drawstring bag. After that, you may work on a project of your own. The library has some fabric available for students. 

Registration is required. Space is limited because the library has only 8 sewing machines. When you register, please include whether you are bringing your own sewing machine.
