The Dustin Michael Sekula Memorial Library will once again host their annual Adult Literary Knitters Club. This year the group will be reading the classic Jane Austen novel Pride and Prejudice (Orgullo y Prejuicio) while knitting shawls and hats for the Renaissance Cancer Center. The group will meet every Wednesday from Dec. 1 through Jan. 19. Class starts promptly at 6:30 p.m. and ends at 8 p.m.
“It does not matter whether you are a beginner or an experienced knitter, come join the fun as we learn together,” says coordinator Norma Perez. Norma will be heading the class and will provide instruction and help. Everyone is encouraged to join in. Patterns and yarn will be provided. Students are responsible for bringing their own tools, which include needles, hooks, and looms. Any donations of patterns or yarn are welcome.
“It is inspiring to see participants read and discuss a book while at the same time making shawls and hats for people who are valiantly fighting their battle with cancer,” says Library Director Letty Leija.
This program breaks generational and language barriers as participants of all ages share and discuss the book in Spanish or English, according to their preference.
All library programs are planned and implemented in hopes of instilling the love of reading to our patrons. Take advantage of this perfect opportunity to have hands on knitting training just in time for the holidays. Don’t delay in registering because these classes fill up fast.
