Happy Needlers & Hookers:
A Needlework Shared Interest Group
Meets every other Monday from 12:30pm-2pm at the Lenox Community Center, located at 65 Walker Street in Lenox, Mass. Street parking is available. Check out our Events calendar for specific dates.
Shared Interest Groups are free and exclusively for current OLLI at BCC members.
The Happy Needlers & Hookers Needlework Group is a Shared Interest Group for people that like to knit, needlepoint, cross-stitch, crochet or enjoy any other needle-based craft.
The Lenox Community Center has again graciously given us a time slot to use their living room. We will be able to meet there every 2 weeks starting Monday, September 27, 2021 from 12:30-2:00pm. We will need to follow Lenox Community Center policies for wearing masks and social distancing. (At this time masks are required indoors.)
You can work on any project you wish. The camaraderie and time we spend together is what we find so enjoyable!
One project idea we could work on is from an OLLI member in Reno Nevada. She has set up a project where her knitters and crocheters make hats, scarves and mittens for local homeless shelters. I will be contacting shelters to see if this is something they would need. We can provide patterns if you don’t have one.
All levels are welcome, from beginner to advanced.
p.s. We also invite you to check out our Photo Gallery on Flickr to see some of the projects we have been working on in the last few months. Let us know if you have any photos you would like us to add to this album.
