Terrace group joins worldwide Knit in Public Day

A group of women hauled out their yarn to knit in the park on Saturday

A small group of Terrace women worked on their knitting, cross-stitching and other similar projects at the Terrace Knit in the Park event last Saturday.

The event is part of worldwide Knit in Public Day, and was organized by the Terrace Women’s Resource Centre where knitting groups meet twice a week to visit and stitch. Some of those in the group do cross stitching, sewing, or even weaving plastic mats and crafts in their weekly gatherings.


Patti Home works on a beautiful brightly-coloured cross stitch while chatting with visitors and fellow knitting club member Ruth Wright at the Knit in the Park event at George Little on Saturday. The group had knitting, stitched and sewed crafts, and even several creations of woven plastic bags spread out across the tables on display while they knit away alongside the Skeena Valley Farmers Market.
