Westport Historical Society Holds Knitting Workshop

The Westport Historical Society today spotlights the ancient art of knitting.

“Knitting has caught on in a big way, and this is your chance to learn how to create everything from baby items to long sweater coats to the ever-popular scarves,” according to a Society news release.

The workshop will take place from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the Society’s headquarters, 25 Avery Place, and will be hosted by Gayle Beyea.

An avid and talented craftswoman, Beyea has won many awards for sewing, embroidery, crewel, her homemade preserves and even photography, the announcement said.

Participants are asked to bring size 10 or 11 needles and their favorite yarn. There is a suggested donation of $8 for Society members, $10 for non-members. Refreshments will be served.
