Tikkun Olam: Knitting and Crocheting

October 25 2021, 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

On the last Monday of each month, the Tikkun Olam committee invites you to join old and new friends for Zoom knitting and crocheting. Lessons and laughter will be had by all.

Our focus will be to knit hats and scarves for Project Home and Bethesda Project. Caps for Keppies and Scarves of Hugs for homeless and housing insecure clients. No experience is necessary!  Please RSVP if you are interested, along with your level of knitting experience, if you are left or right handed. All supplies are available from smile@Amazon.com or any craft store like Michael’s. Registration for the Zoom class can be found here.
