This year in lieu of a gift exchange we will be having a food bank collection. Please bring non perishable food, cans or bottles, or packages that we can donate to Howard County Food Bank and also to Claudia's school, Federal Hill, an inner city elementary school.
The food banks' resources are stretched tight this time of year and The Federal Hill school has an on site food pantry, so both need our support this year.
Bring your food on Wednesday the 14 th only and I'll bring a holiday cake. Claudia and Anne have graciously volunteered to deliver our collected food to the food banks.
Wishing all a wonderful holiday season,
Columbia Sip 'n Knit started on a Wednesday night way back in October 2006 and we used to meet at Border's Bookstore in Columbia (now Books-A-Million). Wednesday night attendance grew and grew till Borders just could not hold us any more and we moved to Panera's. Shortly after the move the Saturday group was created for those that could not join us on Wednesday nights. Then Tuesday morning's were added to the calendar and Friday afternoon's were added in the Fall of 2012.
Everyone is welcome. We have a wide range of expertise in all our groups, so if you have a problem or can't understand a pattern, do not hesitate to ask!! If the person you asked doesn't know I guarantee they can direct you to the best person! We do charitable project every once in a while and we'll schedule something soon.We'd love to have you join us anytime.
Tuesday mornings meet at Panera Bread on Dobbin Road.
Wednesday evenings meet at 2 locations! Panera Bread on Dobbin Road, and Wegmans (upper level).
Friday afternoons meet at Sidamo Cafe on Maple Lawn Blvd.
Saturday mornings meet at Panera Bread in the Columbia Mall
Each group has its on personality and there is one just right for you! Or you could go to all of them! We have no dues, no committees, no board of directors. It's a no problem, no drama kind of group. We have been knitting non stop since the fall of 2006!
Please check the calendar for special events and changes in locations.
