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.
