Next Meetup

Knitting, coffee, and cupcakes!
Knitters of all skill levels are welcome! Crocheters and needleworkers, you'll find a home here too :D We're about knitting, coffee, and chatting with friends. There are always a few experts floating about for help with sticky problems. Turn up with your current project, show off your finished work, or just relax with a drink and some cake. We're an informal group, not a class...always free. *** Novice knitters: If you're excited about joining our little knit group but are a complete beginner, you are more than welcome to shoot Christine a message -- she'll help get you set up so you can be learning your knits from your purls by the time your cappuccino arrives. *** Please Post Your Photos! We have a Members' Gallery where we encourage you to post photos of your finished or in-progress work. Posting photos inspires other members and encourages new ones, so please do take the time to add your pics! Whether it's a complicated cardigan or your very first scarf, a full-length shot of your garment in action, or a detail photo of a few interesting stitches, we're excited to see our members' work. Feel free to add a little description and any useful info about the work. [To post: if you're accessing through your browser, you can post directly to the album Members' Gallery; if you're using the mobile app, you can simply post a photo at the prompt and Christine will move it to the album later. Either method is great!]

What we're about

Welcome knitters of all levels! We're a friendly, easy-going group that meets weekly for a bit of a knit and a chat. The meetup is informal, not a class, and is always free.

Bring along your current project, get help with a tricky technique, share your knowledge with a novice, or dig into some cake and a jolt of caffeine and lose count of your stitches. Or if you're completely new to knitting, just turn up with a ball of wool and needles and learn to knit -- there's always someone eager to help.

If crochet or other needlework is your jam, you'll fit in just fine. Grab your gear and join us!

The meetups start at 5:30pm and generally last 2 - 3 hours. The timing is flexible, so do feel free to turn up later if that better suits your schedule.

We meetup at Glutopia Cake Shop, a lovely little independent shop located on Kingston's Ancient Market Place. The owners of Glutopia very generously keep the shop open late for us on Mondays, so if you're wondering if you should have that second coffee or indulge in a fancy cupcake, please do!

(Kingston Knitting Bee was formerly 'Hands Coffee Company Kingston Knitting Meetup,' from April 2015 to January 2016.)
