|Cool Mid-Century Modern Fairview Library Branch, Santa Monica|
I'm sad. It appears that May 23rd will be our last Fairview Knitters meeting at the Fairview Branch Library in Santa Monica. The Library is about to embark on a major remodeling project. Also, the powers that be do not consider knitting and/or crochet a library-approved activity for their Community Room, even though many of the knitters dedicate one day a week to helping Santa Monica residents, including children, learn to knit. Sigh.

We need a new, FREE place to meet in Santa Monica. If you have any ideas or suggestions, please post them in the Fairview Knitters Group on Ravelry.

Our adult yarny group has been meeting since 2008 on the second, fourth and fifth Saturday of each month from 3:30-5:30 pm. Heather started this group and attended regularly until she went back to University. Our second leader was Molly (photo at left). Molly is a dedicated knitter and library volunteer. She helps teach the regular Tuesday night class for the residents of Santa Monica. When I think about all of the people who have learned to knit because of Molly, I'm warmed by her generosity, patience and the extra time she has taken out of her life to serve the community.
Since our last meeting is during the Memorial Day holiday and many members will be out of town, we decided to have our going away party this past Saturday. Everyone brought treats to share. The room was filled with old friends we hadn't seen in a long time. It was wonderful seeing everyone's yarny projects. I will miss this group.
