Knit & Sip


Every PARTICIPANT walks away with a set of MOS-made knitting needles

and their hand-knit Koozie!


5-8pm, January 31, 2019 at Fogtown Brewing, 25 Pine Street, Ellsworth, Maine.

Pre-registration required.

Never learned to knit but always wanted to try? Does your beverage often get warm before you have a chance to drink the whole thing? Come on down to Fogtown Brewing and learn to knit your very own woolen koozie from Maine Outdoor School fiber artist Hazel Stark. Koozies will be specifically designed to fit Fogtown's glassware and keep your beverage colder longer.

$25 per person (includes yarn, needles made by Joe Horn of Maine Outdoor School--which you keep--and up to 3 hours of instruction). 16 participant max; registration is first come, first serve.

Fogtown will still be open to the public, so feel free to swing by and hang out even if you don't intend to participate! Heck, bring your own knitting project!

Pre-register to secure your spot!
