The session will be held at the JCC, 6600 W. Maple Road in West Bloomfield. There is no charge, and dessert and coffee will be served.
New learners and experienced knitters and crochet devotees are welcome. Participants are asked, not required, to bring any leftover, washable yarns and size 5 – 11 knitting needles to donate. The project will be making squares to be assembled as lap blankets for chemotherapy patients.
