Kids in fourth grade and up are invited to participate in Tillamook 4-H’s winter knitting program, giving them the chance to build skills and create knitted items to take home.
The program, offered in partnership with Latimer Quilt & Textile Center, runs from 3:30 pm to 5 pm from Thursday Jan. 4 through March 8.
Novice knitters will create knitted hats using a circular loom while beginning and intermediate knitters will create a soap bag, pair of slippers or a scarf using knitting needles. All supplies including yarn will be provided. Items made in the program will be eligible to be entered into the Tillamook County Fair as a 4-H project.
Transportation is available from Tillamook Schools to Latimer Quilt & Textile Center — a parent or guardian will need to contact the school directly to give permission for youth to ride the school bus. A snack will be provided.
Pre registration is required at a cost of $45 per enrolled 4-H member. Kids currently not enrolled in 4-H must enroll and pay the $20 enrollment fee in addition. Some financial-need scholarships are available.
