945 Magazine St, New Orleans, LA 70130
Join area knitters and crocheters for an afternoon of knitting at The National WWII Museum! If you knit or crochet, bring your needles or hook to the Museum for a special knit-in. Under the Museum’s soaring B-17, work on your Knit Your Bit scarf—or bring other inspiring projects—while swapping stories with other knitters. Light refreshments will be provided. Veterans who visit the Museum during the knit-in will have the opportunity to pick their scarf!
Since its launch in 2006, more than 10,000 knitters and crocheters in all 50 states have participated in the Knit Your Bit program. Through their efforts, the Museum has distributed 50,000 scarves to veterans' centers, hospitals, and service organizations across the country.
