Meet, mingle, stitch and bit...I mean, knit!

Hi all you Raleigh knitters out there! I hope you're as excited as we are about this meetup group, which allows us all to knit or crochet in good company and to trade patterns, techniques, and stories. We began the group so that we would be encouraged to set aside time to relax and knit, but also to help build a sense of community in this town and to meet people that we might not otherwise meet in our daily circles of work and life.

We generally meet four to five times a week at different locations around the Triangle. Weekday meetups rotate between Panera Bread in North Hills, Starbucks on Lake Boone Trail, Panera Bread on Glenwood, and every Sunday we meet at It's a Grind on Falls of the Neuse. Weekday meetups start at 6:30 pm and Sunday meetups start at 3:00 pm. We also special meetups and events.

Knitters of all skill levels are encouraged to participate. We are all ages and backgrounds, and we always welcome new people. Hope you can join us!

A few notes about the group...

1. Annual membership dues of $5 will be due by February 14th each year. New members can try out the group for two meetups and then must pay dues to remain a member. Dues money collected beyond the $179.88 meetup site fee will be used for special group events and projects. Nonpayment will result in being dropped from the group.

2. If you RSVP for a meetup, please plan to attend. If your plans change, please change your RSVP to make room for someone else. We have to limit the RSVP number because of limited seating.

3. If you are the first one to arrive, don't panic...knitters are on the way! Either grab a coffee or a good spot to knit with lots of chairs.


If you're new to knitting, we'd be glad to teach you how to knit and get you started on your first project. A garter stitch scarf is a good beginner project. Bring with you either 1) a Bulky weight yarn, such as Lion Brand Wool-Ease Chunky, and size 10 straight knitting needles or 2) a Worsted (medium) weight yarn, such as Lion Brand Wool-Ease, and size 8 straight knitting needles. (The yarns above are suggested because they are relatively easy to find in any craft store, and they are relatively inexpensive, but any bulky or worsted weight yarn will do. Just check the label and make sure to get the corresponding needle size for the yarn weight listed above.) Feel free to email Meg or Melanie if you have any questions before the meetup.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
