The Long Island Knit & Crochet Guild will showcase a variety of beautiful, hand-made items at the Library from October 1-30. You will be inspired by the skillfully crafted collection accomplished by novice to experienced members. The Guild was formed 38 years ago and has over 150 members. Thanks to Past President & Membership Chair Anjanette Cooper-Mitchell for coordinating this display.
The Long Island Knit & Crochet Guild is based at the Merrick Club House in Merrick, NY. Knitters and crocheters at all skill levels are welcome to join. Members work on their own projects, share patterns, and assist others with problems. Excellent guest speakers offer presentations or demonstrations on knitting and/or crocheting techniques. The Guild donates items to charities such as: Warm Up America, Caps for Kids, Precious Pals, Seaman's Institute, Ships Project, and We Care Blankets. Members create hats for children and adults, preemie hats, scarves, lap robes, shawls, baby blankets and afghans, and helmet liners and socks for our servicemen in the military. The Guild conducts a "Charity Auction" with proceeds given to Newsday‛s Charities. They also host related bus trips and an annual "Day of Learning" event.
Exhibit funding is sponsored by the Friends of the Garden City Public Library.
