Stitches 'n Books(SnB II) is a "spin-off" of the Janesville area SnB and meets EVERY Monday 1:30-3:30 p.m. at the Hedberg Public Library, 316 S. Main St., Janesville, WI. The normally solitary act of knitting has become more communal with stitchers who gather together each week for coffee, dodging skeins of run-away yarn, stitching and conversation. Even new knitters who aren't yet consumed by the growing popularity of the craft - or other needleworkers who crochet, embroider, cross stitch, etc. - can enjoy an evening spent stitching with others providing the further opportunity to learn and get advise. The focus of the group is knitting but welcomes all needle-crafty people of all ages and genders with different levels of expertise. There are no fees or membership requirments but coffee shop items are available for sale. Free parking!
