Stitch 'n Bitch is a phrase that has been used to refer to social knitting groups which meet on a weekly or monthly basis at locations throughout the world dating back to at least WWII(1939-45) while their husbands were overseas. This self-lead group meets every Thursday night from 6pm-8pm at the library. New knitters and crocheters of all ages are always welcome. All you need to bring are your own materials, snacks and gossip!. Butch Adams/The Times.
