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:

FEBRUARY 7, 2019 
Presented by Heather Lodinsky – Master Knitter and Designer

An important finishing process of a sweater is working the neck, yet many patterns give so little information about the neck finishing.  How many patterns have we seen “pickup evenly around the neck” with no other information?  On this evening, Heather will give helpful instruction and tips to make our neckline look as great as the rest of the sweater


Valentine, Hearts, and Red Display – Valentine’s Day will be here soon so we want to see anything you’ve knit for the holiday, anything with a heart motif,or anything simply red!

(reminder that we are now following the Amherst Central School District’s weather related closing schedule, including after school activities – here is a link to a list of area closings)

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!
