Knitting Circle

Cast on for a Good Cause

Knitters of all levels are welcome at the NCJW/Essex Knitting Circle  – whether you have never touched needles or if you are an expert at reading patterns or can help others with intricate ‘knits and purls’!

Join our fabulous group!  We meet together once a month to knit hats for donation to Livingston Philanthropies for distribution to local agencies and to schmooze. Other projects will be introduced as the year goes on, and new knitters can learn to knit from a professional knitter.
