What we're about

The Machine Knitting Guild of Minnesota is an active knitting machine group in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. Established in 1963 as the Merry Mac Knitting Club, our group is comprised of a diverse group of people interested in machine knitting and other related fiber-arts. All skill levels are represented: beginners, hobbyists, dealers, professionals and instructors.

We meet at 7:00pm every month (except December) on the 4th Tuesday of the month at The Crossings (6125 N. Lilac Drive, Brooklyn Center, MN 55430). You can find us on Ravelry: http://www.ravelry.com/groups/mkgm , and our two Facebook locations here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/mkgmn/?ref=... (https://www.facebook.com/groups/mkgmn/?ref=bookmarks) and here: https://www.facebook.com/mkgmn/

This Meetup Group is another place for us members, past and present, to gain more exposure in the hope of attracting new members, reconnecting with past members, and sharing our love of machine knitting! Feel free to share your project photos, and ask questions, show off new equipment, or just chit-chat!

***NOTE:*** Anyone posting solicitations or any kind of spam on this group page WILL immediately be banned from this group. Also, we are a group of hobbyists and not production knitters. Please do not send requests for us to knit items for you.
