Creative class underway at library
It’s been a few years since Mobile’s most famous yarnbomber, the Knitting Loon, struck. If you’re thinking of taking up the cause in her absence, or maybe participating in next year’s Heavy Metal Knitting World Championship in Finland – look it up – then you’re going to need to get your skills in shape.
On Wednesdays from 2-4 p.m., head to the Virginia Dillard Smith/Toulminville Branch of the Mobile Public Library (601 Stanton Road) to begin knitting lessons from Wilhelmina Davis. Participants need to bring their own supplies. They recommend size 10, 10-inch needles and a 7-ounce skein of regular, worsted-weight yarn.
Open to those aged 8 to adults.
For more information, call 251-580-7144.
County memorial group meets at MMoA
The next meeting of the Mobile County Community Remembrance Project group will be held Thursday, July 25, from 6-7:30 p.m., at the Mobile Museum of Art (MMoA) (4850 Museum Drive). The group’s aim is to work toward establishing a memorial for Mobile County lynching victims and to eventually claim ownership of the Mobile County marker available in the yard of the National Lynching Memorial in Montgomery.
The group has been working with the Equal Justice Initiative in establishing a list of projects to undertake in getting to its goal. Interested parties who would like to get involved can still attend meetings to volunteer their assistance and efforts.
Entrance to MMoA is free on Thursdays for Mobile County residents.
