Save the Date for WWKiPD!

Sit and Knit in Public!

(Square-a-Day Blanket by Lorna Miser)

Grab your needles, a blanket or a's almost time for World Wide Knit in Public Day, Saturday, June 13, 2009!

World Wide Knit in Public Day (WWKiPD) was started back in 2005. It is the largest knitting event in the world! Local knitting venues for public knitting are organized all over the world by a volunteer host.

The Camellia City Stockinette's very own, Sheila is the host for our local WWKiPD at Capitol Park in Sacramento. She has organized a knitting gathering at the northwest corner of Capitol Park near the intersection of 10th and L Street. This will be Sheila's first WWKiPD. She read about it and said "it sounded like fun and a chance to meet other crafters"! The fun will start at 10:30 AM.

Chicory Coffee and Tea

Sheila's good friend Sheron owns nearby Chicory Coffee and Tea. Chicory Coffee and Tea will be open special hours on Saturday to accommodate all the knitters for WWKiPD! According to Sheila, Chicory will have delicious soups, sandwiches,desserts for well as your favorite cuppa or latte!

World Wide Knit in Public Day

You don't have to be a knitter to join the fun. Sheila says you can come out and crochet or do needlework, too. You don't have to be a Camellia City Stockinette either. WWKiPD is for everyone. Sheila would love to have you "sit and knit" with her group of knitters at Capitol Park!

See you there!
