In a partnership with Beyond Yarn and Fashion First Workshops, the Township of Union Department of Recreation is unveiling two new programs for the winter 2023 season. Both programs are open to beginners, and all of the materials are included.

“Not only are Township residents lucky to have a variety of recreational programs to choose from, we are also lucky to have a great relationship with our local businesses,” said Manny Figueiredo, Mayor. “These collaborations strengthen our bond with the small business community, and we are always grateful for their support.”

The following programs are being introduced for this year:

  • Knit & Crochet for All Levels (ages 8-16): in partnership with Beyond Yarn, this five-week program is open to both beginner and experienced knitters and crocheters. The registration fee is $110 and materials are included. Classes are held at Beyond Yarn (1023 Stuyvesant Avenue, Union) on Fridays from 4 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. on March 3, 10, 17, 24, and 31.

  • Winter 2023 Fashion Sewing Classes: in partnership with Fashion First Workshops, this eight-week program is open to all skill levels.

“As the weather remains cold, we’re encouraging students in the Township of Union to either hone in on their creative skills or maybe pick up on a new hobby,” said Robert Cowper, Director of Recreation. “These classes are a great way to do both.”
