Early June 2013 – Worldwide Knit in Public and a Chris Bylsma Teaser!

I hope you enjoyed Worldwide Knit in Public Day, held Saturday, June 8.  Did you go and knit in public?  Worldwide Knit in Public events have extended from just a single day to carry through the whole week, so be sure to grab your needles and hit a nearby coffee shop, the mall or a local coffee shop for some knitting in public!

If you did knit in public, please feel free to upload your pictures on our Facebook Group , or share your projects to our Ravelry Group !

Knitting Related Volunteer Opportunity

We have received a request for knitting teachers:

My name is Keara Williams and I work for Urban League of Greater Dallas, a non-profit organization and I am reaching out for your help (if you are available).  I  am placed at an apartment complex (Rosemont@Sierra Vista) as an Activity Coordinator and we recently conducted a survey to see what events I can hold here on site that will bring the residents out to participate.  Well most people wanted to do hands on activities like knitting, sewing, art & crafts.  So I would like to know is there any possible way that someone from your place of business could come to my site and hold a knitting class for the residents that reside here?  I look forward to your response also any suggestions you may have.

Thank you,
