We’re here to help you thrive
Since 1890, the Greater Holyoke Chamber has been the center for business advancement in the greater Holyoke area.
Are you dreading winter? Do you spend the whole time dreaming of Spring? Stop! There’s a lot to enjoy about the winter, and we’re taking inspiration from The Little Book of Hygge (pronounced hyoo · guh). The closest English synonym would be Cozy!
This group meets on Thursdays for 10 weeks, beginning October 26 and ending January 11.
Each week we’ll meet together to talk about a chapter or two and a different concept from the Hygge Manifesto, namely Atmosphere, Presence, Pleasure, Equality, Gratitude, Harmony, Comfort, Truce, Togetherness, and Shelter. The Cozy Bookclub doesn’t just talk about cozy higgle, though; we’re about it! Feel free to bring your own fiber project, wether embroidery, crochet, knitting, or hand sewing, this is an opportunity to work on (or learn!) a fiber-based craft. Some general guidance and sample projects will be provided, but participants are encouraged to follow their passions and bring their own projects to the circle. We don’t want cost to be a reason someone can’t join in, so participation is free with a suggested donation of $5-10 at the door to cover the cost of operating and snacks.
If you register for the cost of the book, it’ll be mailed to you ahead of the class. If you have a copy, feel free to sign up below and bring it with you!
