Jennifer, Clemens Mill | March 3, 2020

Woolly Wonders is a new program at Idea Exchange, Clemens Mill that gives knitters and crocheters a space to create something special for someone in need. Knitters and crocheters are invited to join fellow crafters for a chance to practice their skills, meet members of the community, and share their passion. All items created during this program will be donated to people who may need a little extra warmth this winter season.

A selection of books will be available for inspiration, as well as some easy patterns for beginners to follow. If you are new to the world of knitting, a scarf is a perfect place to start. More experienced knitters may want to consider making hats, mittens, or socks. Attendees are asked to bring materials such as yarn, crochet hooks, and knitting needles.

Contributors will have the opportunity to display their creations on the Giving Tree at Idea Exchange, Clemens Mill. These items will then be donated to various charities in our community in the days leading up to Christmas and throughout the winter to share the warmth.

Mondays: December  2 – March 2
3:30 – 4:30pm, CM

A place where you can knit or crochet something for someone in need. Bring your own yarn, needles, and hooks.

If we cannot make the time slot, can hand made items be dropped off at Idea Exchange Queen's Square or Old Post office?

There are a few options if one cannot attend the 3:30-4:30 pm knitting session at Clemens Mill – new knitted items can be dropped off at the Clemens Mill library at any time during our open hours, or they can be dropped off at any Idea Exchange location, specifying that the item is for the Woolly Wonders program at Clemens Mill.
