DAMARISCOTTA — Arline Seigars will give a chase away the winter blues knitting workshop at 9:30 a.m. Monday, Jan. 12, at Spectrum Generations Coastal Community Center.

For small ruffles people are asked to bring number 5 knitting needles; for large ruffles bring number 10 needles. Yarn will be provided. Participation fee is $10. To register for the ruffles scarf workshop, call 563-1363.
