Club Hub: U of L Crocheting and Knitting Club

[ Janet Barriage | 21 Sep 2011 | No Comment ]

KnitClubDid you know that millions of people of all ages know how to knit and crochet? In the spotlight this week is the university’s Crocheting and Knitting Club. It brings together crochet/knitting enthusiasts to learn new patterns and meet new people. There is a healthy collection of students who like to crochet and knit, and this club is a great way for them to meet and also introduce new people to this fun and relaxing art form.
They meet once a week for a few hours to crochet and knit whatever they are working on. Students can come to learn how to crochet or knit, expand their skills, meet new people, and hang out with people with similar interests. If you don’t have your own stuff, they can lend you some needles and some yarn to get started with!
They also hope to get involved with the community and give back by working toward cash and physical donations. To start, the club will be getting together to make a large blanket to donate to an organization of the club’s choice.  Last year they made a blanket out of different squares and donated it to the Lethbridge Emergency Shelter.

They plan to have multiple sales down in the university atrium and the SU food court in order to raise funds for charities and to fulfill club needs. They also hope to provide items for raffle and auction to support other club events, so please contact them if your club is interested.

So what’s the difference between crocheting and knitting? Come to a meeting and find out. Contact their president, Sarah Prunkl, at sarah.prunkl@uleth.ca.

If you would like to see your club featured, please contact campus.beat@themeliorist.ca for more information.  Club articles must be submitted by Friday evening to appear in the following issue of the Meliorist.
