The Fiberistas have been meeting once a month at the Irvington Branch, but by popular demand (a petition was signed by all the Fiberistas) their schedule will be expanding to twice a month. They’re going to try this for six months.
Adults are invited to bring their supplies to work on an existing knitting or stitching project or start something new.
Here’s the 2012 schedule.
First and Third Thursday each month
6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
• January 5, 2012
• January 19
• February 2
• February 16
• March 1
• March 15

• August 2
• September 6

If you have questions, call the Irvington Branch at 275-4450.
By way of celebrating this new schedule, here are books from the last couple of years about knitting and stitching. If some of them (this first one, for example) are to be believed, it´s not to late to start working on a holiday gift.
