Whether you're just starting out as a knitters or a long-time knitter rediscovering your love of knitting after losing their sight, this group is for you. Share your love for the craft, stories, and snacks during this bi-weekly group. Volunteers are available to provide sighted assistance when you need a little help. Yarn and needles are available.

This meeting will also have an opportunity to do art. Budding artists who are blind or partially sighted join volunteers for an evening of painting, sculpting and socializing. In some instances, volunteers create a tactile image with a glue gun on canvas so the artists who are blind can locate the area in which to paint with acrylics. Sculptors with vision loss have created bowls and figurines out of clay. Art supplies are provided.
