Colorful Stitches will offer a "Knitting Emergency Clinic" from 1:30 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, March 23, at the store, 48 Main St., in the rear of the building.

With a humorous approach to theming, store owners have set up a special event for knitters with project problems to come for extra help. Experienced knitters Bonnie Burton, Mary McGurn and Nancy Robitaille will be on hand for consultations.

Knitters are asked to bring their knitting project, yarn, needles and pattern. No appointment is necessary and there is no charge.

For "pre-treatment" inquiries, knitters can call Colorful Stitches at (413) 637-8206 or (800) 413-6111.
