Hello, Girard! Next gathering is scheduled for Tuesday, August 21, from 6:00ish to 8:00ish at the Girard Public Library. Both crocheters and knitters are welcome.

Pittsburg area knit and crochet group meets Thursdays at the coffee lounge of Ron’s Supermarket. Some members come around 5:00 to have dinner from the salad/soup bar or deli. Bring a project to work on, a show-and-tell project if you have one, and a desire for yarnie fellowship.

Looking Ahead ~~ Road Trip Anyone?

      Third Tuesday of each month in the evening. This group is primarily centered in Girard but Febrary we are meeting at the Community Center in Franklin. I think March will probably be at the Public Library in Girard. Remind me the next time you come in and I’ll explain how to get there or do a sort of map for you.

    It was great meeting you all last night! I am so excited to have found some local knitters!

      Welcome! Last night’s group was about half the usual size of the group but I think the current hot weather is discouraging people from getting out and about.

And then I don't feel so bad."
