Woolly Mammoth Craft Club

The Woolly Mammoth Craft Club invited elders to mentor young people in a knitting revival. From dyeing wool to making hats, scarves and even outfits for pets, many of our elders have knitted for over 70 years as an essential thread throughout their lives. With help from facilitators Barb Kenney and Shirley Apsouris, they were delighted to to pass their skills on (and help untangle a mountain of donated wool)!

Knitting memories were gathered in the Club’s logbook, and every knitter added a unique, personalized loop to B.C.’s Longest Knitted Chain, in an attempt to set a new Canadian record. This fun weekly program continues with gusto, and plans to send the knitted chain around B.C. to be continued by other clubs.
