A Good Yarn Book Club

June 4, 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

We are delighted to be the partner for Old Town Books June audio book club! Join a group of craft-curious makers who get together twice a month – every other month – to listen to an audiobook and unwind via making: knitting, needlepoint, collage. You name it.

This month’s book and project:

This month we are listening to Curtis Sittenfeld’s Romantic Comedy. A comedy writer thinks she’s sworn off love, until a dreamy pop star flips the script on all her assumptions. This book hits a real sweet spot for a summer read – laugh out loud funny, sexy, smart.
For this session we will be creating a textured embroidery piece. The Abstract Textures embroidery kit is the perfect place to start learning the basic principles of embroidery with simple stitches and textured materials. Kit includes everything that you need for our project this month! Purchase yours here.
The kick-off meeting will take place at fibre space on Sunday, June at 4:00 PM where we’ll hand out the kits, discuss tips and tricks for embroidering, and make sure everyone is set up on Libro.FM. Then on Sunday, June 25 at 7:00 PM we’ll meet at Old Town Books to discuss what we all thought of Romantic Comedy and show off our creations.


How to join:

1. If you haven’t already, join and then subscribe to the Old Town Books page on Libro.fm. You’ll get your first audiobook free!
3. Order your kit for the craft.
