CNY Arts Center is planning yarn fun on Wednesdays at its downtown gallery located at 47 S. First St in Fulton.

The community is invited to stop in the gallery anytime between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. for knitting and crocheting sessions with Anita Vibbert.

“Anita is one of our newest and most engaging volunteers,” said Nancy Fox, director. “Volunteering to sit at the gallery allows her ample time to share her love of knitting with anyone who wants to drop by to sit and knit for a spell.

“We have a large collection of yarn and Anita will be delighted to teach basic knit stitches to anyone who wants to learn. And she’d love to learn to crochet so she’s hopeful knitters and crochet lovers will drop by for an hour or so just to visit and swap techniques, ideas and all things yarn.”

Yarn is provided for beginners and new projects, but please bring your own knitting needles and crochet hooks.

Arts in the HeART Gallery is run by volunteers from CNY Arts Center at 47 S. First St in Fulton, across from the city gazebo. For more information, call 592-3373.
