Muskoka Together

Knitting Muskoka Together began with a series of free beginner's knitting workshops held in Port Carling, Huntsville, and Bracebridge Fall and Winter 2018-19. Participants were taught the skills needed in order to make their own dishcloths, scarves, and more!

Knitters from across Muskoka joined us on a cruise on the SS Bigwin and in the YWCA Gathering Space for a Show and Share. We shared what we're working on, finished projects and many laughs!

Knitting Drop-In
Knitters of all skill levels are welcome to attend our knitting drop-in every Tuesday from 12-2pm. Bring your work in progress or start something new after browsing through our pattern booklet! No registration required, simply drop in!

Feedback From Aging Artfully Participants:

"When you spend 17 hours a day taking care of someone else, it feels so nice to do
something to take care of yourself."

"When women come together it's automatically therapeutic"

"It was lots of fun and good to have time with so many happy ladies. It was all so well
organized and lunch was delicious ... enjoyed by all!"

"It's amazing how the drumming brought us all together so quickly. It really fostered a
sense of community and connectedness."

"My first attempt at anything artistic and I absolutely enjoyed it! – I could do this again
and again!"
