The Women of St. Margaret’s will host its bi-annual Community Knit-a-thon on Saturday, Nov. 8, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. in the St. Margaret’s Church library at 95 Court St. Knit-a-thon proceeds will benefit Waldo County Habitat for Humanity.

The fun event is open to all as a time for gathering to work on projects. Bring any type of handwork and come enjoy the company and the warmth of a cozy space.

All fiber lovers are welcome, including crochet, spin, and knit artists. Participants are welcome to join for any or all of the day, and bring a project, or not!

There will be a trunk sale as well as a “comfort food” potluck dinner at 6 p.m. Sponsorship forms and more information is available at
