A Stitch in Time
On the eve of the American Revolution, knitting became a patriotic duty as women produced their own woolen clothing while boycotting English textiles. They continued to knit throughout the Civil War and the World Wars to keep their fighting men in warm socks and clothing, and many knitters still donate hand-made items to our soldiers overseas. Today, knitting provides a tactical experience in an increasingly virtual world, which continues to soothe the soul as it has done for generations.
The Bartow History Museum is hosting a Knitting Workshop for Beginning to Intermediate level knitters ages 12 and up on Saturday, April 22, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Participants will learn a variety of stitching techniques and have the opportunity to complete one small project. The workshop fee is $20 for members and $25 for non-members and includes instruction, assistance, all materials, and museum admission. Register at www.BartowHistoryMuseum.org. Space is limited!
