Handicraft Times

Are you knitting a sweater, crocheting a scarf or working on a beautiful embroidery? 

When you hear the sound of laughter and current affairs are being analysed, guests can count on the fact that Handicraft Time is on.
Enjoy knitting, crocheting and embroidery in a good company with coffee on the side. Everyone is welcome to join, beginners as well as more advanced.

No registration – just come! 

We have plenty of books and magazines on handicrafts if you need inspiration, want to read at the library or take home with you. Below you can see an example of some of the material we have  at the library.

Do you love knitting or crocheting as well as reading and chatting about good books? We will meet on Thursdays at 3 pm in the Handicraft Corner on the 2nd floor in Grófin, from September until May but we take a break during the summer months.

Would you like to start your own Knitting Circle in a collaboration with the Library? Feel free to contact us and we will find a good location and time for you to meet.

Are you currently in a group of people that loves to get together and work on your handicrafts but need a place to meet? Feel free to pick a library and show up when ever you feel like - although if the group is big it's better to check out with the staff first in case there is an event going on at the same time.
