Under the Dome Knit-In

Under the Dome Knit-In

Knitters and crocheters—mark your calendars for the next Under the Dome Knit-In on Saturday, May 16!   The Museum welcomes all knitters and crocheters to come down and create charity items or work on your own project at this highly popular ongoing program.   This event is free and open to the public and is held in the Museum’s Governor Fifer Courtroom from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Our local knitters and crocheters have made hundreds of hats, scarves, gloves, and more for many local and national charities including; residents of the Home Sweet Home and Safe Harbor shelters, for victims of the Washington, IL tornado, and victims of Super Storm Sandy, since the Knit In began three years ago!  And we continue to find out about more charities that need our help!  As always, information about the “Knitting for Victory: Knit Your Bit” campaign, other local knitting and crocheting charity opportunities, and copies of free patterns used to make items for those charities will be available.  Light refreshments will also be served.  Just bring your own project or the materials to begin a new one.

So grab a friend or two, some needles or hooks, and of course don’t forget your yarn, and come on down to the Museum and Knit For A Bit!

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