Knitted Pumpkins DIY Workshop with Craft Lake City

Register here: https://form.jotform.com/212724867463160

Celebrate autumn and the harvest season with us at our Knitted Pumpkins DIY workshop! In this class, attendees will learn the basics of knitting as they craft their own adorable plush pumpkins just in time for Halloween. Instructor Kristin Baird of Hey Kitty Rae will teach attendees the differences between yarns and tools used for this craft, the two elemental stitches of knitting, casting on/off, and seaming. Take these techniques to the next level and create handmade gifts for friends and loved ones this holiday season, and maybe even indulge in creating some cozy new knitwear for yourself, too!

All supplies are provided, and fiber-arts beginners are welcome. Attendees will each receive a bonus $10 gift card to Waffle Love, courtesy of Valley Fair!

Last Summer Downtown Farmers Market of the Season

Jordan River Canoe Clean-Up

Salt Lake City's Trails & Natural Lands and the Jordan River Commission would like to invite members of the community to participate in our Jordan River Canoe Clean-Ups taking place this Fall. These events are a great opportunity to play a role in improving the natural quality of our river by removing litter and debris while enjoying a leisurely float. It is our mission to provide opportunities for the community to be involved in maintaining and protecting the natural spaces that they enjoy, and to become more connected to the space itself. However you enjoy the Jordan River and its adjacent trails, we'd love to have you join us. If you're interested, please follow the link provided below where you'll find listings for all our events this Fall. All pertinent information will be outlined in the listing, including a link to get yourself signed up. https://www.slc.gov/stewardship/
