Knitting in 19th century

A program, "The Most Easy and Graceful Employment" Hand-knitting in the 19th Century, will be presented by Rebecca Bayreuther Donohue Feb. 22 at 3 p.m. in the Music Room of the Stevens-Frisbie House.
The Cromwell Historical Society talk will offer period photographs and engravings, instruction books and period patterns, original pieces and reproductions to illustrate the depth of the art as it became associated more with leisure than with necessity. People may bring questions, comments and knitting.

Admission is free and refreshments will be served.
For information, see or call (860) 635-0501.
