Spend a winter morning by the fireplace chatting, knitting, crocheting or hand-sewing with designers and crafters of the Arboretum's Auxiliary. This popular event will return in 2016, with these proposed dates, and is open to the public: Wednesdays, Jan. 13 & 27, Feb. 10 & 24 and March 11 & 25, from 10 a.m.-1 p.m.. Bring your relatives, friends, neighbors - all levels of experience from beginners to advance are welcome. Auxiliary members can help you get started with a handiwork project such as embroidery, answer a knitting question, share patterns, etc. Bring your project and materials to the Carlson Dining Room (first session only, Wednesday, Jan. 13) or the Fireplace Room (all other sessions) in the Snyder Building, and meet the crafters who bring you the Quilt, Spring, Harvest and Holiday sales.
