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.
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.
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 was created intentionally as a secular and inclusive crafting group with a mission of meeting to create together for our communities. While the organizer of Knotty Neighbors has stepped away from the project, Sit ‘n’ Stitch will continue to collect donated items for local distribution.
As always, attendees to Sit ‘n’ Stitch can spend their time however they wish: work only on their own projects, contribute items to Knotty Neighbors, or together choose another project to support! The main idea of the group is to gather and connect in an inclusive and welcoming way, embracing the Cultural Center’s mission to be a rural hub for creativity, community vitality, and lifelong learning in the arts. ALL are welcome!

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.
