About Us

The Kitchener-Waterloo Knitters’ Guild is a non-profit organization that provides a community for 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.

Meetings usually involve a presentation by a guest speaker, a 'show & tell' of members' projects, business announcements, and social time to visit each other, the library, the 'show & tell' items, the raffle table, and the guest speaker's items. Meetings are a perfect time to get help with any difficulties you are experiencing with your own projects.

Knitters' Fair

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

Saturday, September 9th is the big day for the 25th 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, celebrating the Fair's 25th and Canada's 150th as well!

Adjudicated Show

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