Glasgow Knit 'n Stitch is a socially-based group that brings together all sorts of people from all over Glasgow and the surrounding areas to share their passion for yarn, needles and hooks.
We're a crafty bunch, ranging from beginners to experienced and although most members are knitters, we're very happy to include all kinds of textile art at our meetups.
We meet regularly (up to 3 times a week at the moment) - regular meetings are currently on Sunday afternoons, Wednesday afternoons and Tuesday evenings - but all members are welcome to suggest additional meetings in any venue so long as they don't clash with things already arranged. Just contact any one of the Organisers Group and they can arrange to schedule your suggested event.
There is absolutely no obligation to come to all of the meetings, you can pick and choose to attend those which suit you. It is really helpful though if you can remember to RSVP "Yes" for the ones you do plan to come to as it allows whoever's organising it to see in advance roughly how many people to expect. Sometimes meetings are quiet - just 3 or 4 people - but some can get very busy with more than 20 attending and it helps us to work out suitable venues when we know the approximate numbers.
Please don't worry if your plans change - it's really easy to just update your RSVP to "No" and it happens all the time for all of us so nobody minds at all
The goal of all of the meetings is to provide a friendly atmosphere where we can all share in the pleasure of stitching, as well as help each other with a technique, a pattern or project, a yarn swap - and of course provide an appreciative audience to show off your finished projects. We get it, there's no need to explain !
Membership of our group is FREE - thanks to the kind sponsorship of "Old Maiden Aunt Yarns", based in West Kilbride.
If you are interested in learning how to knit and/or crochet for the first time, so long as we have advance notice that you'd like to learn at a meetup, there will probably be someone who can help you get started.
Our events are generally for adults but every now and then we schedule one where children are very welcome to come along too - just keep an eye on the message board.
So why not RSVP "Yes" to one of our scheduled events ? We promise we don't bite ...... although we do carry sharp, pointy sticks .....
