The 4-H Thread Café is a new group to teach knitting and crocheting skills to young people ages 10 and over. The six week program is organized and skills taught by Katarina Goodge, a MS Fiber Science Student with the Frey Research Group at Cornell University.
Students will learn the basics of both knitting and crocheting, including how to cast on, bind off, basic stitches of knitting and purling, single and double crochet, increase and decreasing stitches, following pattern directions and characteristics of different yarns. The goal is for each student to complete two projects.
The 4-H Thread Café will meet every other Monday from 6:30-7:30pm, starting January 14 and ending March 25 in room T01 (Terrace level of Human Ecology Building) at Cornell University. The address is 37 Forest Home Dr, Ithaca. Students will be expected to practice skills between meetings. You can park in the lot across the road or park in the Forest Home parking garage then walk up the stairs on the right side of the building and watch for someone to direct you to the meeting location.
The cost of the program is $25 and includes all supplies and materials needed and snacks. There is limited enrollment in this program, and adult volunteers are needed to help teach the basic skills.
Please contact Katarina at firstname.lastname@example.org to register for the program and with any questions.
