"The Ol'North State Knitting Guild" is now the "Triangle Fiber Guild" and meets the second Monday of each month. We met at Oak City Fibers last Monday, January 8, 2024 and have committed to the Knitted Knockers Program! If you're interested in knitting a few knockers, come to Oak City Fibers and get your yarn (reminder, we must use specific yarns for this program). Breast Cancer has affected so many millions of people and this is a great way to give back to the community!! So let's all get involved in some good charity knitting as we kick off our "Knitted Knockers" project for 2024!! Breast Cancer Awareness holds great importance to us @ Oak City Fibers. Therefore, we have decided to become a proud sponsor of this great organization and will donate part of our sales proceeds in 2024 to this cause!
