The Knitting Guild of Greater Buffalo fosters the highest standards of excellence in the practice of knitting through an active program of education and study, promoting interest, appreciation, and skill in knitting.

Our next meeting is December 6th at 7:00 pm (doors open at 6:30)!

Presented by Jenna Meyer – Master Knitter and Knit/Yarn Entrepreneur, Owner 716 Knit

Tonight we explore the potential of hand dyed and indie dyed yarns. Ever hesitate when buying a skein of yarn because you are unsure of what it will look like knit up? Jenna will help explain common dye techniques used by indie dyers and how they may look for specific projects. Please note this presentation is about fabric/pooling/color dispersion and not a dye tutorial.

This year’s theme of Participation is one that will be explored in many ways throughout the 2018- 2019 season. Don’t sit on the sidelines! Going to a festival or show this autumn? Write an article describing your experience for the newsletter. Share your talents at Show & Tell in October. Participate in planned charity knitting events, teach or register for one of the November mini-classes. Support your local stores and vendors by shopping at Yarn Fest while you enhance your stash. Give joy to others by donating yarn for the auction in May. And don’t forget to register for the Annual Spring Seminar with Lorilee Beltman!
