Afternoon Knitting Meetup

As decided by the group, we will now be on a THREE week rotation with Saugatuck Cafe, Aje, and field trips to different cafes around the greater Lakeview-ish area. Be sure to check the meetup site to see where we are.

Please note the new time! The MeetUp will now start at 1:00pm instead of noon to better accomodate the needs of our group.

Please feel free to make suggestions for Field Trip days. We are always happy to try a new place! (Keep in mind we need enough space to accommodate a group sitting for several hours.)

We'll be charging the $1 Meetup fee.

    Everybody! Tomorrow may be the last day I'm in possession of the ball winder and swift for awhile (other CKU groups have requested it) so let me know TONIGHT if you have anything to wind and I will bring it to Saugatuck. If you don't tell me until tomorrow, don't expect the thing to show up with me; it is cumbersome and I'm taking public transportation in at least one direction, so I'm not going to bring it unless I know someone will use it.

    See you tomorrow!

    Hi, Shameka, welcome to the group! If you check the Chicago Knitters Unite "FAQ" page you will see that we don't teach people to knit at regular meetups, but there are occasional specific sessions scheduled for classes in knit and crochet techniques, including ones for brand new knitters. Also, depending on where you live in Chicagoland, your local yarn store may offer instruction and/or classes as well. Youtube has some great videos, too, if you're more inclined to teach yourself (or if, like me, once you've learned, you forget how to do certain techniques every five minutes).

    If you do any other sort of needle work, like crochet or cross-stitch, feel free to bring that along and come to tomorrow's Meetup--we're not that picky about what you do while you're with us at the coffee shop.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
