Downtown Knitting

The Penny Farthing

"When you're alone and life is making you lonely
You can always knit - downtown.
When you've got worries, grab your knitting and hurry
Come and knit with us - downtown."

Downtown Knitting is back - bigger and better than ever before!
We're starting 2023 with a new venue - Linen Hall, which is next door to Penny Farthing.

Uptown, Midtown and out of town knitters, crocheters, hand stitchers, yarn and fabric lovers are welcome!
