About Us

The Kitchener-Waterloo Knitters’ Guild is a non-profit community of knitters.

In October 1986, a group of knitters gathered together to form the Guild. The love of knitting continues and new members are always welcome. We strive to:

  • improve the skill and artistry of our craft
  • increase the interest in, and knowledge of, knitting and related activities
  • promote and celebrate our craft in the Kitchener-Waterloo area

Monthly Meetings

Members may attend all meetings free of charge. Join or renew your membership in person at any meeting, or on our membership page.

Monthly K-W Knitters' Guild meetings run from September through May on the 2nd Tuesday of each month.

Guests

Guests may attend up to two meetings per year for a nominal fee of $5 per meeting.

Meeting schedule

  • 6:30 - 7:30 PM Knit & Chat
  • 7:30 - 9:30 PM Meeting including Guest Speaker or other programming

Meetings usually involve a presentation by a guest speaker, a show & tell where members present their finished projects, and business announcements.

Come early or wait for our break to enjoy social time, the library, check out the show & tell items up close, the raffle table, the yarn table, and the guest speaker’s items.

Meetings are also the perfect time to get help with any difficulties you are experiencing with your own projects - ask a member with stickers on their lanyard or your neighbour for assistance.

Knitters' Fair

Every September, the Guild hosts a specialized event with many vendors offering the latest and greatest knitting products.

Saturday, September 7, 2019 is our next annual K-W Knitters' Fair!.

Knitters' Fair planning is underway with lots of action, excitement and upcoming surprises! This year's event promises to be a memorable one, bigger and better than ever.

Adjudicated Show

Every second year, Guild members submit knitted projects to be modelled in a fashion show after being adjudicated by a guest designer. This is a celebration of the diversity of members' interests and creativity.

Our next show is set for June 2020. Stay tuned for more details.
