New club allows students to express their creativity

Imani Ongalo

There has been a recent uptick in interest at North over all things “fiber.”

Fiber Folks is the newest addition to North’s assortment of clubs. “Fiber” refers to all sorts of crafts involving yarn or thread from crocheting, knitting, and embroidering. The club has something for everyone. They meet every Tuesday and can be found in the HUB. The club was started by Algebra and AP Statistics teacher Stephanie Liverant. 

“The environment is very warm and welcoming, and the people there are always able to help if anyone has questions,” said member RJ Luth.

“The environment is good. We are always open to new members into the club. We are all super friendly and inviting. The group gets along well, and we have a good group” said member Mallory Bernardi.

In its short time, the club has quickly grown and has a strong group of people. They have accumulated a peaceful and amicable community that gets along swimmingly. It is the perfect place to unwind with a relaxing activity following the stress of the school day. 

“I would recommend people join even if they are not interested because while it may seem intimidating the activities we do are easy to pick up and really fun to do,” Luth said.

People may be apprehensive to join the club because they aren’t well versed or skilled in what they are doing. However, the club is more than open to beginners and encourages people of all skill levels even absolute beginners who know nothing on the subject can come and participate. Newcomers don’t even have to worry themselves if they have the proper tools to participate. Supplies are provided from crochet hooks, knitting needles, and anything else one might need to complete their projects. 

“People can join the club even if they don’t know how to crochet because someone in the club who knows how to crochet can teach them the basics,” Bernardi said.

On top of providing supplies for members, the club also has many knowledgeable people who are open to assisting anyone who is still learning. They can ask others in the club for assistance with any struggles they may be having and questions they have about their projects.

“I have not finished making anything yet since the club started, but I am working on making a scarf and a hat,” Bernardi said.

Slowly but steadily the club has gotten their footholds and is working every week to complete projects.
