HEY KNITTERS!  While the crochet classes are going on, I’m going to be knitting.  Want to join me? —  especially those of you who have taken knitting during a Tuesday night class series that might be stuck on something and need to get going again.  PLEASE NOTE:  This is NOT a class for new students but a helpful time for those who need it!


I’ve been contacted by the Nashville Waldorf Home Schoolers group about teaching their students.  The class would take place in the West Nashville area (Brookmeade/Bresslyn) every otherFriday afternoon from September 9 – December 16and will last about an hour.  There will be about 12 students at each session as well as their parents – some who know how to crochet.  If you are interested in helping, please let me know.  As soon as instructor interest is gauged, we will set a time.  All supplies and handouts will be provided.kandctn@gmail.com

Dear Friends –

It looks like another busy fall for Knit and Crochet Tennessee! We are growing and expanding our fiber reach — so exciting.  There is a possibility that a NEW group will be forming at the Hendersonville Library where crochet classes are wrapping up.  We are teaching knitting at the Richland Library in October — maybe a group will form there too!  And the Inglewood Library has expressed interest in classes.  All of this activity is possible because of YOU volunteering to teach, cake, sort, make items and attend events.  The future is unlimited!
