Secret Society of Crafters – Hearts on Fiber

June 13 @ 10:00 a.m.

208 South Main Street

Crafting is more fun with other people, which is why we created the “Secret” Society of Crafters. The title says “secret,” but we’re a not-so-secret, not-so-exclusive group who meets to stitch, craft, crochet, knit, sit and talk. We may or may not talk about knitting, yarn bombing, hand dying, or the latest stitch. We may even talk about world domination. You won’t know unless you come. Connect with crafters in the area, find the motivation to pick up that project again, and benefit from the wisdom of a passionate crafting group. The “Secret” Society of Crafters meets outside the store every Wednesday and Sunday at 10:00 AM weather permitting. We hope to see you there!

PURCHASE YOUR TICKET (includes a copy of IN THE HEIGHTS)

Before Hamilton became a global phenomenon and Lin-Manuel Miranda became a household name, a little show called In the Heights shook up Broadway with its hip-hop and salsa soundtrack and its big, bilingual heart. In the new book In the Heights: Finding Home, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Quiara Alegría Hudes, and Jeremy McCarter tell the story of the show’s humble beginnings, from rehearsals in a bookstore basement to the Broadway smash (and soon-to-be feature film!) that created an unbreakable community and a new kind of family for everyone involved. Join Main Street Books and Miranda, Hudes, and McCarter for a very special In the Heights Virtual Book Launch on Tuesday, June 15 from 8:00 to 9:00pm ET on Zoom. Sure to be an unforgettable conversation on creativity, community, and finding home, this is your chance to hear directly from the creative team.

Trivia Night at Summit

June 17 @ 7 p.m. –

We’re so excited to have in-person trivia back again! In order to host trivia safely, we are going to have y’all sign up on this form so we can set up tables + chairs appropriately distanced from other teams. Here’s the deal:
1. You must register in advance, otherwise we can’t guarantee your team a seat.
2. Maximum of 6 people allowed on a team
3. We will have a maximum of 14 teams for the evening.
4. We will offer table service, so you don’t have to go inside. You are welcome to place orders inside as well, but we’re adding the option to limit the amount of contact/movement you have to make.
5. Honor system for scoring – meaning you will score your own sheets so there isn’t a transfer of paper/germs from table-to-table.
6. Trivia will start at 7pm!
Please email [email protected] with any questions!!
