In 2018, you can see the names of more than 150 people on the Melrose History Quilt in 1898. They lived on the same streets and may have walked into many of the same buildings we see today. What a wonderful thought to consider!

Beginning in late November 2018, a Yarnstorm will arrive in Melrose. Created by knitters and crocheters with support from Lucky Cat Yarns and the Melrose Public Library,¬†festive displays will highlight the streets where these people lived. You’ll also find places on the National Register of Historic Places decorated with colorful creations.

Want to be part of the fun? Then come to Bowden Park on June 9 between 10 and 2 pm. Or join our email list to hear about Yarn Storm meet ups and decorating times.
