The Women of St. Margaret's will host their biannual Knit-a-Thon to benefit the Belfast Soup Kitchen Saturday, March 17, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. in the library of St. Margaret's Episcopal Church, 95 Court St.

Although the event is termed a knit-a-thon, any and all handwork is welcome. Lessons on knitting, project support, great company and delicious food will be available. Participants may stay for an hour or two, or spend the day.

Proceeds will go to the Belfast Soup Kitchen, which offers more than just a hot meal five days a week. It also provides emergency groceries, a coffee club, a public health nurse and literacy volunteers.
