We’re cooking up some new programming here at the center! Today was the first day of our new knitting group, which will happen every Monday morning. We had several people interested in our group today; some came knowing how to knit, while others learned from scratch. I was pleasantly surprised by some of the people who already knew how to knit and others who were willing to learn! We’d love for more of our guests to join our group, but for that to happen we’d need a few more knitting needles and/or crochet hooks.
GMC also now has a chess club that is affiliated with the United States Chess Federation. One of our members took the initiative to set it up, advertise it to our members, and solicit suggestions for our club’s name (which is now registered with USFC as the very creative “GMC Chess Club”). This same member will also be leading chess strategy lessons once a week.
And if that weren’t inspiring enough, I had another member ask if she could lead a demonstration/workshop on how to create a makeshift loom and weave a little square, which can be used to patch clothing or bags.
Stay tuned for more updates on what’s happening at GMC!
