One of the biggest roles an LYS fills is providing a community. While that is usually an in-person one, our unprecedented times are calling for a virtual one...so here goes.
All of us at Nitro Knitters are going to extend that community to social media and share our creative endeavors while trying to do our part to slow the spread. We, like most of you, do more than knit or crochet. We sew, bake, create artwork, and have cute pets. If you need some distraction and want to look at something other than news on your phone, follow the hashtag #nitroknitterscommunity. And please share what you're doing with us! Tag anyone who could use a knitting community right now. You can even set up notifications for when certain hashtags are used or people have posted.
For those of you who aren't on social media, I will keep this blog up-to-date as well.
If you want to email, you can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Stay safe, and we will all get through this together.
