The Rochester Knitting Guild is an organization in Rochester, NY that exists to promote learning about knitting, provide a social context for knitting, and encourage the public to learn to knit!

Exciting News for the January Meeting!

The Rochester Knitting Guild is delighted to welcome Sarah Schira of Imagined Landscapes to our January 9, 2023 Guild Zoom meeting at 7pm.

Sarah Schira is known for #NeverNotGnoming but when she’s not knitting gnomes, she’s designing knitting patterns for everyday adventures. She loves to design accessories that look harder than they are, and that flatter you while you live your adventures.

She and her husband live in Manitoba, Canada, where they’ve raised their two kids to adulthood. Homeschooling both kids, coaching, and doing a lot of volunteer work with adult learners has fired Sarah’s passion for anticipating problems before they happen and teaching so that people feel supercharged to be adventurous in their knitting. “We travel to Germany to visit Rainer’s family and when I’m abroad, I miss the big skies; when I’m here, I miss the cobblestones and shops. It’s my passion for travel that inspires Imagined Landscapes designs. I love including the lines and textures I see, whether it’s a sweeping prairie vista or a cobblestone intersection.” Her website is: ImaginedLandscapes.com

We will be hosting a weekly Zoom knit and chat, Gnome for the Holidays, starting on Nov 29 and running until January 3, 2023, on Tuesdays at 7 pm for one hour. We will share some of Sarah’s Gnome Schooling videos to get us ready to Gnome like crazy. And we can all share and cheer for each other’s progress in making our gnomes before Sarah’s presentation!

Please note: A zoom link will be sent to all registered Guild members in the week before we start Gnome for the Holidays.
