This group is in full swing! Come join us. We have an awesome group of all ages, men welcome, too. Newbie knitters or experienced pro's alike are welcome! All you need is your interest, willingness to learn, your laughs, your knitting supplies, and of course, our one motto is,"NO SNOBBY KNITTERS ALLOWED". Don't forget to bring your week's worth of bitching and ranting b/c SnB wouldn't be fun without some joking around and letting off some weekly steam. I have been in many knitting groups where newbies were not encouraged. All I can say, is: 'that is ridiculous!' I pride this group on friendliness and if you are not into assisting or lending a friendly hand to your fellow knitter, this is not the group for you.
Updated as of 2/21/14 and effective 3/1/14, we have an In/Out policy. You pay you're in, you don't, you're out but can rejoin anytime you can commit to membership. It is required that a $15/yearly fee is paid to help run the site for this group which is how we get the bulk of membership. I don't pocket any of this money. It is paid directly to the MEETUP site-any extras will be used to cover costs for food/beverage at off-site locations (ie not at Starbucks), ie movie nights, etc.
If you join the site and are inactive for one month, (meaning no show for a free first time meeting or no payment of yearly dues), you are removed and asked to rejoin ANYTIME when you can commit to membership. We don't want tons of inactive members, we want those who are committed to building an active and cohesive knitting group.
Thanks for checking out the housekeeping and be sure to connect with me directly if you have questions. LOOKING FORWARD TO KNITTING WITH YOU! WARMLY, Janie Organizer
