In honor of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, join us in the Rotunda Room of Old City Hall for a special moon landing film screening of the Smithsonian Channel movie “The Day We Walked On the Moon.”

The documentary tells the story of this defining moment in our history. Interviews with key figures in Mission Control, contemporary astronauts and the families of Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong shine a light on the mission’s dangers and how close it came to failure.

Beginning Nålbinding

Join us here at Northwest Yarns to learn this ancient form of needlwork with Benjamin Brodfuehrer! Nålbinding is a technique using lengths of yarn and a needle that predates both knitting and crochet. The needle is ‘woven’ into the previous loops in a certain order to produce a fabric that is thicker and more durable than knitting or crochet. Nålbinding is still practiced in Scandinavian countries and parts of Peru.
