Story of Stitchfest

Stitchfest was first conceived by staff member Kate Colquitt as an intergenerational meet-up program where Seniors could teach knitting and crocheting skills to Teens. She called this program Knitter's Knot. 

In 2014 staff members Eugenie Contrata and Laura Burk took over and were joined by volunteer Doris Gordon. The meet-up moved from the Teenburgh area of the Library to the 1st floor Multipurpose Room and was permanently scheduled for Thursday afternoons.

In 2016 Sada was invited to bring her quilters into the meet-up, and Stitchfest was born.
