Purls of Wisdom: Kni
Tuesday, Sep. 24, 10:00AM-12:00PM
A casual knitting and crochet group. Gab with friends over a recent project, get help getting started, or ask about our initiative to clothe Maine's homeless and New American populations! Please note we may have a few materials for beginners to practice with but participants should bring their own supplies. We will have a few select patterns available for copying, and participants can copy the pattern they're working on for free.

Knitting for Charity: Some Tips!

**Yarn fiber** Wool insulates and is fire-repellent, but if it isn’t labeled “superwash” (aka won’t shrink in the wash), then it might be more trouble than it’s worth. Acrylic blends on the softer side are a good choice; do as every knitter does and test it by rubbing it on your cheek!

**Color choice** Gender neutral colors are best, since they can be handed out indiscriminately. Bright colors for adults may attract unwanted attention. Also, darker colors don’t show dirt.

**Pattern selection** Lean toward making hats, mittens, scarves, and socks; blankets are amazing gifts, but if they are cumbersome, it is more likely they will be left behind. Knitting with yarn held double (two strands instead of one) thickens the fabric and reduces air holes, but keep in mind that it may also affect your sizing.

This event is free and open to the public. For questions or directions to the Library, call 865-3307 or visit freeportlibrary.com.

Wednesday Morning Co
Wednesday, Sep. 25, 10:30-11:30AM
Think coloring is just for kids? Think again!

Why all of this fuss over coloring books? First of all, it’s just plain fun! But current day research also indicates that coloring de-stresses and lessens anxiety in adults, providing a healthy break from our highly scheduled, technology-dependent lives.

The Freeport Community Library is providing a dedicated space every Wednesday morning for anyone 18 and older who would like to drop-in at 10:30AM and color for an hour or so. The library provides an assortment of materials including highly detailed coloring book pages for you to choose from, colored pencils, and a large assortment of crayons. Or, bring your own coloring book pages to copy and share with the group!

This event is free and open to the public. For questions or directions to the library, please call 865-3307 or visit freeportlibrary.com.
