Knit & Stitch with the Auxiliary! 

Knit and Stitch


Spend a winter morning chatting, knitting, crocheting or hand-sewing with designers and crafters of the Arboretum's Auxiliary. Bring your relatives, friends, neighbors - all levels of experience from beginners to advance are welcome.  Auxiliary members can help you get started with a handiwork project such as embroidery, answer a knitting question, share patterns, etc.  Bring your project and materials to the Oswald Teaching Classroom, (down the hall from the balcony) and meet the crafters who bring you the Quilt Raffle, as well as the Spring, Harvest and Holiday sales. For further information, call: (612) 625-9865.
