Knitters' Nook in Williamston

I had a wonderful time yesterday afternoon teaching an Earth Day approach to knitting!  Kristi, owner of the Knitters' Nook, 107 South Putnam Street, Williamston, Michigan, was a fabulous hostess!  We had a small but enthusiastic group of students.  Many thanks to Kristi  Lundgren and Carol Lacca for coordinating this event.  Check it out!

Rethink Rewind Restart

I had a wonderful time this afternoon at the Lansing Library (CADL)!  I encouraged library visitors to help create a sculpture from recycled and repurposed materials, celebrating Earth Day and Lansing's RecycleRama.  We worked in the main lobby with materials I provided; yarn, bells, fabric, chenille stems, beads, netting, ribbons along with odds and ends.  Everyone who participated did a great job and we had loads of fun. Please stop by the lobby (corner of Kalamazoo & Capitol Avenues)  to see our sculpture, on display through the 21st. Many thanks to the supportive and creative CADL staff too!
