Knitting Keeps Us From Unraveling

Fibromyalgia London Group (FLG) invites any member, support person, or member of the public to participate in this exciting new activity program, therapeutic knitting for those with pain and who want more purpose.

Led by Janice Sumpton, Knitter Extraordinaire and Knitwear Designer with decades of knitting experience. Living with chronic pain for more than 20 years, Janice found the rhythm and calming repetition of knitting very therapeutic in helping her cope with pain.

This program is sponsored by our Group, the Fibromyalgia London Group and offered in collaboration with the London Public Library (LPL), to support the needs of the FM/CFS/ME community in London, Ontario, Canada and area, as well as anyone who feel they will benefit from being a part of this new community-led program.

Join us Thursday November 28th, 2019 from 1-2:30pm (doors open until 3pm if you wish to stay and continue) in the Boardroom, 3rd Floor, London Public Library – Central Branch in Citi Plaza (formerly the Galleria), Downtown London, Ontario, Canada. 

This is a FREE (that’s a real word, look it up) program, OPEN TO ALL AGES and all skills, but please REGISTER – simply email mailto:fmgroup.london@gmail.com or phone 519-453-3198 to reserve your seat (if you forget, which those of us with Fibrofog never, ever, ever do or you feel up to it, please join us anyway, drop by and spin a yarn). 

Anyone of any knitting skill level who is:

Interested in learning how to knit or about therapeutic knitting as a coping method for pain management…

Interested in swapping ideas on how to live everyday with pain and manage pain…

Looking to enjoy fun time with others who share similar interests, make friends, etc…

Looking to give back to community by supporting local charities in need of donated knitwear (COMING SOON! Knit/Crochet for Donation to a Local Charity – We Will Provide Supplies!).

Please join us (and tell your friends, family, neighbours, co-workers, children, siblings, Grandma, Grandpa, mailperson, elves, doctors, tell Santa, well, tell everyone)! 

Don’t Know How To Knit? We’ll Teach You! Learn How Therapeutic Knitting Can Help You Cope with Pain. Come Meet for Fun and Crafty Conversations!

Yarn provided for beginners with Instructional Help (bring own 4mm or 4.5mm needles), or please, bring your own project!
