Knitting Collective

Dedicated to advancing the art of knitting through the sharing of ideas and techniques, education and community involvement.

Outside of the meetings, we also have workshops and special events such as our annual spring Knitter’s Frolic – a full day of workshops, shopping, and sitting around with like-minded individuals. We are also involved in special projects like “Knitting for a Cure” and “Relay for Life”.
