In Stitches In McKinney is made up of knitters, crocheters, weavers, spinners, and other needlecraft and fiber artists. We have many stitching opportunities!
Our members are an active body that participates in many ways and through many venues. Here are a few of the options we feature within the group:
Social Gatherings: There are daytime and evening get-togethers on a weekly basis to stitch, rejoice in the triumphs of our finished objects, share in new findings with books, patterns and yarns, and pick a brain or two to get over the hurdle of that stubborn project before it gets frogged.
Charity: Yarns of Hope is a charity group that makes items for local oncology units, children's hospitals, orphanages, and mission trips. If you are a beginner, this is also a great place to learn how to knit, crochet or loom! This group also has day and evening weekly get-togethers. While Yarns of Hope is not part of In Stitches In McKinney, it is a worthwhile charity group and some of our members attend.
Discussion: We have a discussion board where we learn about the latest and greatest crafting gossip!
Other activities held throughout the year:
Field Trips: Visiting yarn stores and events such as yarn crawls and Fiber Fest are an absolute necessity in the crafting world! One can never have enough in their stash
Specialty Events: Tech Night is one of our many events which is a great way to meet members from across all the meetup groups and learn a new skill.
Annual membership dues are $10 per year. Membership dues cover the cost of our website on Meetup.com and help with special events, activities, and other goodies throughout the year.
New members will not be asked to pay dues until after their first month. We want you to have a chance to evaluate the group make sure it's a good fit.
We hope you will join In Stitches and take the time to visit one (or all) of our groups.
Thanks for stopping by and we hope to stitch with you soon!
