Join Our Community Yarn Project!

We are thrilled to unveil an exciting new project that promises to unite our community in creativity and compassion. Pick up your knitting and crocheting needles and join us on a Community Yarn Project that will warm hearts and bodies alike.

Picture a beautifully adorned Mezzanine, filled with colorful squares of yarn, each crafted with love and skill by members of our community. These squares will be assembled to create stunning tapestries that will hang proudly in our communal space. But that’s just the beginning. Our vision extends beyond the aesthetic.

What is Community Yarn Project All About?

This initiative is more than just art; it’s an opportunity to make a tangible difference in the lives of those in need. The tapestries we create together will be transformed into blankets for individuals facing challenging circumstances. Every stitch we create will bring warmth and comfort to someone in our community who could use a little extra love.

Why Get Involved?

All Ages Are Welcome:

This project is open to everyone, from seasoned knitting and crocheting pros to those who’ve never picked up a pair of needles. It’s a fantastic chance to learn a new skill, share your expertise, or simply enjoy the therapeutic art of knitting and crocheting with neighbors of all ages.

Foster Community Connections:

As we gather to knit, purl, stitch and chat, we’ll strengthen the bonds that make our community special. This project offers a space for conversations, laughter, and shared stories, fostering connections that transcend generations.

A Legacy of Caring:

By participating in this Community Yarn Project, you’re leaving behind a legacy of compassion. Your efforts will wrap others in warmth and kindness for years to come.

How Can You Get Involved?

Knit and Crochet at Home:

You can contribute by knitting or crocheting  4”x4” squares at home and dropping them off at the library. We will accept squares until April 22.

Attend a Community Yarn Project Event:

Join us at the library for exciting events suitable for all ages!

Spread the Word:

Encourage your friends and neighbors to join us. The more hands we have on deck, the more blankets we can create.

Let’s Craft a Brighter Future Together!

Our excitement for this Community Yarn Project is contagious, and we can’t wait to see our library transform into a tapestry of colors, stitches, and stories. Join us as we embark on this journey of creativity and compassion, and together, we’ll weave a tale of unity and warmth for our community. Stay tuned for more updates, and let’s make the world a little cozier, one stitch at a time.

With yarn and heart,
