World Wide Knit in Public Day 2015

The GroupWe had the most wonderful Day last Saturday June 13th for World Wide Knit in Public Day at BookEnds Bookstore in Meiners Oaks, Ojai California. Proud to be one of the almost 900 groups in 56 different countries participating this year. This is our first year in Ojai, but the tenth for WWKIPDay. We had 60 women come together, from 8 years old to 88 years old……sharing, laughing, helping each other, teaching each other……fully embodying  the official slogan of

“Better Living Through Stitching Together”

Here we are teaching each other……
