This is an informal group, not associated with guilds or organisations, for anyone who likes to socialise while working on projects. Any craft that you can easily pop in a bag and do in a café, etc (i.e. in limited space) is welcome, not just knitting. All levels are welcome too - from beginners to experienced.

Meetups are held about once a month on a Saturday or Sunday - the events are usually in the CBD to make it accessible for most people. Our regular venues are the cafes at the State Library, the Art Gallery of NSW and the MCA, as well as 99 on York and the Bavarian Bier Cafe on York.

Group Rules: Essentially, respect the other group members and respect the organiser.

1. Maintain your RSVPs - RSVP yes if you are going to come to an event, and update this to a No if you can no longer attend. There are often waiting lists and this allows someone else to have the spot. Please don't just show up as this is unfair to people waiting for a spot.

2. Understand that the organiser is volunteering time to run an event once a month, to suit the group overall, not to meet the demands of every individual of the group. (happy to discuss other events though).

3. This is not a stitch-and-bitch - drama and bitchiness will not be tolerated. Seriously, you will be removed from the group.

Suggestions for new venues are always welcome - ideally the venues need to be spacious (because there are a lot of us), have good light, accessible by public transport (CBD is best), and be fairly tolerant of a big bunch of people sitting there for a few hours. The last one is the most important.
