Shaker Museum | Mount Lebanon and The Warm Ewe invite the public to join a series of free knitting workshops offered on September 7, 21, and 28, between 2pm and 4pm. Each workshop will take place at the Mount Lebanon historic site at 202 Shaker Road in New Lebanon, NY. The staff of The Warm Ewe will provide free yarn and needles to the participants of the workshop for the project. Participants of all skill-levels, under the guidance of the organizers, will create individual knitted squares which will be joined together to create blankets to be donated to the Family Resource Center of Columbia County.
