Several fiber entusiasts of all ages gathered in the John J. Collins Park in  Galeton this past weekend to take part in Knit in Public Day.

This was the seventh year the borough has celebrated the worldwide event, though it's been celebrated worldwide since 2005. Galeton Mayor Vince Salvadge was there and proclaimed June 8 as Worldwide Knit in Public Day in Galeton. 

Linda Voss-Plummer, an organizer of the event, teased there would be some surprises in store for participants. For one of the surprises, a couple of angora rabbits hopped by and Voss-Plummer spun their fur to eventually become yarn. 

The Pine Creek Methodist youth group worked on a variety of string art crafts while knitters, crocheters, spinners and a weaver celebrated fiber arts as participants from the area gathered to visit, renew acquaintances and make new acquaintances.

A few local businesses donated baked goods for the guests to snack on and a knitting-themed cake was made by Nancy LuBera.
