Saturday, May 5
Starts at 10:00 AM
Knitters and crocheters—mark your calendars for the next Under the Dome Knit In, Saturday May 5 from 10:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. in the Museum’s Governor Fifer Courtroom! The Museum welcomes all knitters and crocheters to come down and create charity items or work on your own project.
This quarter’s featured knitting/crocheting charity is Comfort for Critters. Volunteers have been knitting and crocheting blankets to comfort homeless pets living in animal shelters across the United States for the past 10 years. While these pets await adoption, the blankets provide a comfortable bed year-round. When they are adopted, their blanket goes with them, providing something familiar as they adjust to their “forever family.” A local beneficiary of these blankets is CISAR /Central Illinois Small Animal Rescue in Colfax. For more information about the project, lists of participating shelters, or free patterns to use, please visit http://
The Under the Dome Knit In is FREE and open to everyone. Light refreshments will also be served. Just bring your own project or the materials to begin a new one. Grab a friend, some needles or hooks, and of course don’t forget your yarn, and come on down to the Museum to “knit for a bit!”
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
