Knit-It-Together will meet at the Preston Library every Tuesday at 3:30 and knit for an hour.
Anyone who’s interested in knitting is invited. Weekly attendance is not mandatory; join us whenever you can. This is for ALL ages and ANY skill level. Even if you’ve never knitted before and have no equipment, this is a good time to find out if you’re interested and what you’ll need to get started.
There are many knitting books in SELCO, so if you are unable to join us, you have many great books that teach and inspire. Just go to SELCO Catalog, choose your library, hit go, type “knitting” in the box, and click the arrow.
A good book to start with is: “Mary Thomas’s Knitting Book.”
An impressive reference is: “The Principles of Knitting : methods and techniques of hand knitting.”

Charlie Maguire brings his unique historical perspective in song to Preston Public Library on Tuesday, October 18 from 7-8PM. Maguire writes and sings songs that tell the “unsung” stories of ordinary people doing extraordinary things that helped to shape our state and national history, culture, and destiny. A singer and songwriter in the tradition of Woody Guthrie, he performs on guitar, harmonica, jaw harp and spoons. He is founding performer on “A Prairie Home Companion”, “Centenial Troubadour” for Minnesota State Parks and Trails, a “Bush Fellow”, and recent recipient of the Minnesota “State Government Innovation Award”, for his work with Veterans in a program he co-created; “Operation Sight & Sound” OSS.
Mr. Maguire has recorded six albums and has written for Minnesota Monthly, the Star Tribune (Minneapolis), and for National Public Radio.
