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.  

October’s panel discussion on Knitting Adventures was very inspiring!  There is a world (literally!) of retreats, festivals, conferences and more to explore.  Be sure to check below as well as our Events & Festivals page to see where your knitting can take you – some are only a car ride away!  Here are a few pictures from the meeting.

Our next meeting is November 1st at 7:00 pm (doors open at 6:30)!  Come prepared with the supplies and homework for the mini-class you are registered for.

If you are not registered for a class, we ask that you knit and socialize in the lobby as the meeting space will be for classroom use only tonight.

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!
