My Wednesday Nights

Isaac at Whippletree

In the summer of 1997, Martha started a weekly knitting group. By fall, it was my “Merry Band of Knitters”. What I soon learned was that while most of the people needed some help with their knitting, they needed something else more. They, like me, lived in or around Woodstock, but without relatives nearby. We soon became each other’s family. We’ve been through marriages, divorces, babies, people moving in and people moving away, but through it all we share a bond.

Currently our members range in age from eight to ninety-something and Isaac, the greyhound. We discuss the world’s problems, review books, movies, and recipes, sometimes we knit and we laugh.

    My family and I are interested in moving to Woodstock from Baltimore City, Maryland. One of the hardest things about moving is losing your community bonds and one of those bonds is the craft group I started a few years ago at the Maryland Institute College of Art. Knowing that there is a community of fiber’s art lovers will help the transition immensely!

      Thank you for visiting our website. A knitting, weaving, or spinning community has always been important to me when I’ve moved. Looking forward to seeing you if you choose to come here…Shelley
