What we're about

Welcome to the Madison Crochet, Knitting and Yarn Crafts Group! We're an inclusive group of mostly knitters and crocheters, though other crafts are welcome, too. So if you knit, if you crochet, if you do latch-hook rugs, or yarn dolls, or are strangely passionate about pompoms, come join us! You're even welcome if you do crafts that don't have yarn in them; so long as it's portable you are invited to join us.

Our default location is the Colectivo on Monroe St, though from time to time (especially in the summer) we meet at other locations (most are on the west side, but if you'd like to start a branch in a different neighborhood, please let me know). Likewise we mostly meet on weekday evenings, rotating through Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, but we've been working some weekends in here and there, too.

We also have Beginner's Workshops roughly every two months, where people come either willing to teach or ready to learn. There is no pre-required skill level to come to one of these workshops, though we do ask that you bring your own supplies. And if the timing of them doesn't work for you, give a head's up in the comments for a particular meetup, and we'll probably be able to teach you then, instead.

And the last thing that I'll mention here is that while meetups are free to join, they cost money to host through the meetup site. It's $15-20 each month (depending on how you buy it), which is not an incredible amount of money, but is still significant to me, so if you value the group, I'd really appreciate it if you can pitch in towards its upkeep (there's a donate button, or cash at a meetup is fine, too), although it is definitely not required.
