Under the Dome Knit In- Wrap a Senior in love!

Knitters and crocheters—mark your calendars for the next Under the Dome Knit In on Saturday, May 20 from 10:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m.! The Museum welcomes all knitters and crocheters to come down and create charity items or work on their own project. This event will be held in the Museum’s Governor Fifer Courtroom.
This quarter’s featured knitting/crocheting charity opportunity will be making lap blankets and shawls for residents at assisted living/skilled nursing care facilities in Bloomington-Normal. For seniors who are less mobile, lap blankets and shawls are the perfect way to stay warm any time of the year. Plus, these items are a great way to brighten their day as some seniors may not have any family or friends who visit them. Handmade items like these can really make a difference in the life of a senior; showing them there is someone who cares! So let’s wrap our seniors in love with some lap blankets and shawls. There will be several lap blanket and shawl patterns available for participants to use, or feel free to use your own.

The Under the Dome Knit In is FREE and open to everyone. Light refreshments will be served.All you need to bring is your own project or the materials to begin a new one.

Free parking will be available at the Lincoln Parking Deck, one block south of the Museum on Front Street. For more information or any questions, please contact the Education Department at 309-827-0428 or education@mchistory.org.
