Stranded Knitting Traditions Workshop
Mary Jane Mucklestone, teacher
Join us for this exciting PMM fundraiser and explore the wonderful, colorful world of stranded knitting. This beautiful folkloric knitting tradition occurs all around the world from Fair Isle and the Shetland Islands to Scandinavia and throughout Central Asia. Stranded knitting is using more than one color in each round of knitting. Bring yarn and needles, please call for details. At PMM’s Stephen Phillips Memorial Library, Church Street, Searsport. $30 non-members, $25 members. All funds donated directly to PMM.

Mary Jane has a BFA from Pratt Institute and studied and Textiles and Historic Costume at the University of Washington.
When & Where
Penobscot Marine Museum
Penobscot Marine Museum has the feel of a 19th Maine village. Our lovely campus of ten buildings is in the charming town of Searsport on Penobscot Bay. Our ship captain’s house is beautifully furnished with antiques from around the world. Another ship captain’s house displays our extensive collection of 19th century marine paintings, scrimshaw, ship models, and China Trade objects. We have three 19th century barns displaying over fifty classic small water craft including lobster boats, dories, and canoes. Two buildings are filled with hands-on maritime activities for kids. Outside on our green you can raise and lower a ship’s mast!
Check our website www.penobscotmarinemuseum.org for exhibit, lectures and workshops through the year. The PMM campus is open from late May through late October, but our Gallery has special exhibits, lectures and workshops throughout the winter and spring, and our Museum Store and Framer remain open Thursday through Saturday.
