What we're about

We love creating stuff, and we love hanging out together. We’d also love it if you’d bring your yarn (or whatever) and hang out with us. Do you knit? Do you crochet? Do you spin your own yarn? Do you embroider? How about needlepoint? We won’t judge. The important thing is that we get together in Bay Ridge (y’know, near the end of the R line in Brooklyn) to have lovely conversations while doing our yarn craft thing. The core of our group represents knitting and crochet equally, so we won’t have any rivalries. Our group members also love to help out, so feel free to bring your troubled projects, your snarled yarn-balls, and that thing you made that you just can’t get around to blocking. (Seriously. One of us actually enjoys blocking.)

Did I mention that we’re personable? We are. We like people. (Ok. One of us doesn’t like people as a group, but really enjoys them individually.) We welcome moms and dads, the whole LGBTQ+ community, young folks, elders, believers, non-believers, folks from here, folks from there, and everyone who doesn’t want to sit in these word-buckets. Just come and be human with us.

You can also find us as a Facebook group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/BayRidgeYarnCraft/about

Craft with us remotely every Sunday morning!

Online event

All crafters are happily welcome at our weekly virtual meetup!

If you’re a regular at our meetings, this is the event with the new Zoom link. If you’re new, we’re looking forward to meeting you. What took you so long?

Before the world turned upside down, we met weekly in a local coffee shop in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. Then we moved to virtual meetings to get us through until the world started opening again. Now we’ve realized that we’d be sad without all our friends from other places, so we’re going to keep the virtual meeting going.

Back in the day, we were all about knitting and crochet, but then one started chainmaille, another started cross-stitch, and one illustrious member crafted by reading the New York Times.

Throughout all our phases, meeting spaces, and crafts, the constant has been our easy-going, welcoming vibe. The group truly welcomes all sorts of humans who practice all sorts of art and/or engineering. We’re as happy to meet seasoned knitters as we are to meet embroiderers who are picking up a needle for the first time. We joyfully welcome people from the whole spectrum of humanity when it comes to gender, race, ethnicity, background, and any other way we artificially divide our species. We enjoy each other’s company, and we’re pretty sure we’ll enjoy yours. So join us to craft and chat. Stakes are low, so pop in and say hi if you’re not sure this is the right group for you. Hang out with us once and then make up your mind. There’s no fee, and you were going to get on the interwebs Sunday morning anyway.
