Events Overview

As part of @floydmemoriallibrary‘s summer exhibition “Textile Tales: The Entwined Stories of Fiber Art” (June 9 – Aug 6), the library opened the Yarnstormers’ Studio!

Want to participate in a YARN STORMING?

As part of our partnership in the summer exhibition Textile Tales: The Entwined Stories of Fiber Art (June 9 – August 6), at Greenport’s Floyd Memorial Library, is seeking knitters and crocheters to help yarnstorm exterior sections of the library and of CAST’s headquarters.

From May 1 to June 8 the library’s mezzanine is home to a “Yarnstormers’ Studio” where makers can drop in during library hours to create pieces for our street art installation. You’ll find some tools and materials provided (though feel free to bring your own), and a “drop box” of yarn for use … and for yarn contributions.

Knitters and crocheters are encouraged to create pieces such as granny squares and long, narrow scarves. These will later be joined together and wrapped around structures such as the library’s bike rack and CAST’s front sign.

Kitting sessions will be announced on the library’s and CAST’s Instagram and Facebook. If you would like more information on the yarnstorming, please email the library’s Art Exhibits Curator: sally@floydmemoriallibrary.org. Knitters and crocheters are welcome to contribute pieces made at home, and we can provide details of our yarnstorming “wish list.”
