    We will often have experienced knitters or crocheters on hand. Do join in whether you like the craft, company or if you would enjoy just a pleasant hour of relaxing needlework. Some supplies are at the library; bring your own projects, too. We currently have a good supply of knitting needles but could use a few crochet hooks and some good yarn.
