To join us live online, here is the Zoom link!


Whether you knit, crochet, cross-stitch, or crewel, this group is the place for you. New members are welcome, and current members are willing to teach their skills.

To help keep the program energized and focused, each session is limited to ten readers so please sign-up early to save your seat. The Zoom link will be emailed to each registered person.

The Any Book Club meets on the 2nd Wednesday and 4th Tuesday of each month from 10-11:00 a.m. on Zoom. Members can attend either or both as space allows.
