  • At this month's String Thing, Carl Mitchell, one of the Members on Duty and also a member of the International Guild of Knot Tyers, will teach some knots that can be used to decorate a package or a tree - or both!  Depending upon the number of persons and the interest level, he will teach one, two, or three knots that can be hung on a tree, dangled from a garland, or decorate a package.  There is no charge, but freewill donations to the teacher and the space are always appreciated.  Carl is bringing a limited amount of supplies; you may wish to bring a few yards of cord or thick yarn; heavy lace; thin rope; or similar material.


    Every Sunday from October through April (or May) we will have an activity that is open to everybody. Bring friends, tell friends. No charge, but a donation to the space is always welcome. Beverages and snacks available for a nominal fee, or bring your own.

    THIRD SUNDAY is STRING THING. Almost anything involving string: making it (spinning, twisting), knitting, crocheting, weaving, knotting (including but not limited to macramé), tatting, bobbin lace, sewing, embroidery, netting - whatever you like to do with string!

    Some months we may have a how-to class, potentially with a charge if a kit is or supplies are involved. Volunteers to teach are always welcome. If you don't want to take the class, you're welcome to come and work on your own project.

    This sounds very cool. I will possibly be out of state at a family event that I can't miss if it does happen that day (waiting for plans to be firmed up), but if I'm in this area, I'll be sure to join you.
