CLINTON — The Clintonish Knitters are taking reservations for the fifth annual Knitters Market Bus Trip to Schaumburg Aug. 9.
The cost for the trip including the market ticket is $30. Non-Knitters are invited to join the group for a day of shopping at IKEA, Woodfield Mall, Streets of Woodfield and Woodfield Green. A free trolley transports between all the venues.
The bus will begin in Morrison, Illinois, pick up in Clinton, departing at 7:15 a.m and will stop in Dixon, Illinois, if requested.
This is a nonprofit trip so any extra will be distributed as door prizes.
Trip expenses must be covered on or before July 1, or the bus will be canceled. For more information, leave a message at 243-8592 or stop by during a knitting session for additional information.
The Clintonish Knitters meet on a drop-in basis at St Paul Lutheran Church on Thursday evenings from 5:30 to 7 p.m. and Saturdays between 9 a.m. and noon. All are welcome. There are no fees. The church is located at the foot of the Gateway bridge on the corner of Eighth Avenue South and Third Street in Clinton. Please use the east entrance.
