Uptown Yarns hosted a ‘Knit-In’ at last year’s Elevate The Arts Festival.

Come downtown and knit in public

Uptown Yarns, an anchor store on Courtenay’s popular Fifth Street, is celebrating World Wide Knit in Public Day with a Knit In on Saturday, June 18 from 1-3 p.m. at the Comox Valley Art Gallery plaza, 580 Duncan Ave. in  Courtenay.

Bring along your latest project, a lawn chair and a friend.

Don’t know how to knit but always wanted to learn? No problem. Jennifer Emslie, owner of Uptown Yarns, will be in the Learn to Knit Tent. Emslie opened the store in 2000 and loves to inspire people with her passion for knitting and crochet.

World Wide Knit in Public Day was kicked off in 2005 by Danielle Landes as a way to bring knitters together. Since then, yearly events have taken place all over Canada, Australia, China, England, Sweden, South Africa and many more countries.

If you have any questions, please contact Uptown Yarns at 250-338-1940. You can also find them on Facebook. Please bring a non-perishable food item to donate to the Comox Valley Food Bank.
