FMS is also partnering with the libraries. There are collection boxes at both branches, and they will hold crochet workshops.


Program Description: Learn the basics of crocheting while making a flower! All materials provided, but if you have your own crochet hooks, please bring them.  Call 508-532-5636 x5 or drop by the McAuliffe Branch Children’s Desk to register before the program.

Learn to Crochet: Flowers (All Ages but geared towards children, teens, and their parents)

Wednesday, March 11


Mca Community Room

We will also be making flowers at the Space during Open House, Weds., 7-9 pm through April.

Update:  Still planning to do this but it is delayed due to COVID situation.

Framingham MakerSpace, with the support of the mayor's office, is organizing an art project created by members of the community at large. We will be installing a field of crochet flowers in the Arlington Street Park on May 2.

Everyone is invited to participate. Make large flowers crocheted or knitted out of yarn, any colors or design. Ideally, we will use up odd lots and yarn left over from other projects. No need to buy yarn.

This is a great way to keep productive while we stay home (kids too!) and gives us all something to look forward to.

Flowers may be left at the Calahan Center, the Framingham Public Library and the McAuliffe branch as well as the MakerSpace once they are reopened.
