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.  

What a wonderful first meeting of The Buffalo Knitting Guild – it was great to see so many returning members as well as new members!

Many thanks to Dr. Arlesa Shephard for such an interesting and informative program on textile care & preservation!  Here are a few pictures from the meeting.

Our next meeting is October 4th at 7:00 pm (doors open at 6:30)!  Please click here for membership form and information.

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!
