Knittingat ONEgeneration Senior Enrichment Center (OSEC)
Wednesday 1:00 – 3:30
Frankie teaches knitting at the ONEgeneration Senior Enrichment Center, and has been doing so for an astonishing 43 years!
Frankie, originally a New Yorker, says she has always done volunteer work — she majored in Sociology and was a Peer Counselor here at OSEC for 10 years.
The Knitting class is a warm and caring place for people to congregate. “It’s like a social club,” says Frankie, who gives instruction and help to participants when needed. “More likely it’s a refresher course once in a while.”
Many of the items produced in knitting class — such as scarves, baby booties, sweaters, hats and blankets — go on to sell at the Encino Farmers Market, and all the proceeds go to support the wonderful programs at the Center.
Frankie encourages new members and will supply practice needles and yarn if you don’t have your own at first. “Come in and sit down,” says Frankie, who even supplies donuts and danish. “It’s a friendly place to be.” See you there!
