Princeton Makes will host a Knit in Public Day at the Princeton Shopping Center on Saturday, June 11 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. This is part of the world’s largest knitting celebration, with similar events happening around the globe that day. The event will take place in the center of the Princeton Shopping Center courtyard, and in the event of rain will take place inside the Princeton Makes store.
Knitters and the knitting-curious are invited to attend the event to share their love of knitting, techniques, and projects. The event is open to knitters, crocheters, and spinners. People are encouraged to bring a current project on which they’re working along with a chair to relax in while they work.
Piroska Toth, organizer of the event and a co-op member at Princeton Makes, said, “This is a great way for the knitting community to get together and enjoy each other’s company and learn from one another. Knitting, though done individually, has always been a communal activity that brings people together. I’m thrilled that Princeton will be a part of this worldwide event.”
