We are proud to partner with NAMI during their upcoming NAMIWalks Your Way 2022, by providing a Project Knitwell Learn to Knit outreach table. This vibrant gathering will be on October 8 at The Plaza at Tysons Corner Center. If you would like to join us to volunteer to teach knitting anytime between 7:30am–12pm, please email Volunteer Coordinator Jenn Benecke at jbenecke@knitwell.org. This is a wonderful way for Project Knitwell to partner with community allies and promote the therapeutic and mental wellness benefits of knitting.

We look forward to hosting a new Color Cafe class for Fiber Artists on the AHP calendar this upcoming October 6, 13, and 20 from 11am–12pm. To sign up for this free class, visit Eventbrite. Think about the ways color and texture bring you joy and join us to learn more about our colorful world! During these Thursday morning discussions at 11:00am EST, we will learn together about the foundation of color theory and psychology. The workshops are interactive with opportunities for participants to critique and share.
