2015 Guest Workshop ~ Franklin Habit ~ April 10 - 13 ~ Information

Welcome to the Rochester Knitting Guild


CANCELLED: The February Guild Meeting Tonight (Monday, Feb 9) Has Been Cancelled!!

Dear Rochester Knitting guild members, Due to the constant snow fall, bad roads and anticipated freezing rain this evening, Meg and I have decided to CANCEL tonight's meeting. We will have Afghan squares for sale at the next meeting and look forward to seeing all your snow time knitting. Please stay inside where it is safe and warm. See you next month! Tina Turner RKG President

February's Program at the Guild ~ Color Work!

Get out of the monochromatic shades of white, gray, beige, mud, and slush that have been dominating our area and come liven things up with Color Knitting in February! We will discuss 3 methods of adding color to your knitting ~ Stripes, Stranded Color Patterns, and Intarsia. We will also pick up the thread of Jogless Stripes in Circular Knitting carried over from the January meeting. This will be a colorful and fun evening certain to warm you up and get your mind off of all that white stuff falling out there! We hope you'll join us Monday, February 9th, doors open at 6:30, meeting gets underway at 7:00.
