When Anne Winslow was age seven, her grandmother taught her how to knit. Now this Chester grandmother teaches children how to knit at the Chester Public Library on Saturday afternoons. kids knit with anne

The group has been growing and the 100-year-old library can get crowded. So the Kids Knitting group decided to share the art and fun of knitting with their friends.  They will hold a knitting event on Sunday, Feb. 28, from 12 to 2 p.m. at the Chester Museum at The Mill, during Chester’s “Always on Sunday” knit resize

The event is free and open to all. All children must have parental supervision.  Assistance will be provided for new knitters. Beginner supplies will be available, or please bring your own.
