Weekly Fiber Artists’ Gathering
Weekly on Thursdays
Now 2 Hours! 5:00 – 7:00 pm
All are welcome at this weekly fiber arts gathering offering time and space for some fiber fun on Thursdays from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. in the beautiful Cultural Center Gallery space.
PLEASE NOTE: Sit ‘n’ Stitch will meet at the New York Mills Public Library during the month of January 2023, while the Cultural Center is closed. Sit & Stitch returns to the Cultural Center beginning Thursday, February 2nd, 2023.
Bring your own projects, get advice, or use our supplies to start a new project. Crochet, knit, weave, sew, stitch, needlepoint, felt–do whatever you like! Beginners and experienced fiber artists are all welcome. Regular attendees will teach beginners or help you figure out a stitching pattern. Yarn, needles, hooks, and project bags are provided for free to those who need them! Sit ‘n’ Stitch is open to all and free to attend.
We are happy to continue our partnership with Knotty Neighbors!
New in 2022, Sit ‘n’ Stitch partnered with Knotty Neighbors: a new group of fiber crafters using their skills of knitting and crocheting to craft winter outerwear, washcloths, and/or other identified needs for sharing with our neighbors in the OTC Lakes Area through distribution via partner nonprofit organizations.
Knotty Neighbors is a secular and inclusive crafting group with a mission of meeting to create together for our communities; existing under the umbrella of the New York Mills Regional Cultural Center.
Attendees to Sit ‘n’ Stitch can spend their time however they wish: work only on their own projects, contribute items to Knotty Neighbors, or some combination of both! The main idea of the group is to gather and connect, embracing the Cultural Center’s mission to be a rural hub for creativity, community vitality, and lifelong learning in the arts.
All are welcome! Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 218-385-3339 with any questions.
This activity is made possible in part by the voters of Minnesota through an operating support grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
