The Cozy Bookclub & Fiber Circle



The Artery (289 High St., Holyoke MA)

Are you dreading winter? Do you spend the whole time dreaming of Spring? Stop! There’s a lot to enjoy about the winter, and we’re taking inspiration from The Little Book of Hygge (pronounced hyoo · guh). The closest English synonym would be Cozy!

Every Thursday through January 11th we’ll meet together to talk about a chapter or two and a different concept from the Hygge Manifesto, namely Atmosphere, Presence, Pleasure, Equality, Gratitude, Harmony, Comfort, Truce, Togetherness, and Shelter. The Cozy Bookclub doesn’t just talk about cozy hygge, though; we’re about it! Feel free to bring your own fiber project, wether embroidery, crochet, knitting, or hand sewing, this is an opportunity to work on (or learn!) a fiber-based craft. Some general guidance and sample projects will be provided, but participants are encouraged to follow their passions and bring their own projects to the circle.

We don’t want cost to be a reason someone can’t join in, so participation is free with a suggested donation of $5-10 at the door to cover the cost of operating and snacks. If you register below for the cost of the book, it’ll be mailed to you ahead of the class. If you have a copy, feel free to sign up and bring it with you!
