What we're about

Welcome to Philly Knits! Our motto is, Each One, Teach One! Before you go to your first meetup, please visit our resource website - PhillyKnits.org (http://www.phillyknits.org/). We're into spreading the joy of Fiber Arts (knitting, crochet, pompoms, sewing, etc.) across Philadelphia, AND collecting donations of yarn, fabric, and supplies for the Philadelphia School District. At our meetups, all skill levels from beginner to expert are welcome. Philly Knits is also here to help you start a new meetup in your local cafe, library, etc., if you want to do that. Again, thanks for joining Philly Knits and we look forward to meeting up with you!

Old City Knits @ United by Blue

United By Blue Flagship

Old City Knits is now meeting at United by Blue, a big coffee house at the corner of 2nd and Race Streets. It is at street level, inside a tall glass building. It is a roomy space to sit - talk - knit with one another. And it is convenient for transportation since it is just two blocks north of Market Street. All are welcome, from experts to beginners, just bring your own supplies and we'll help get you started. Hope to see you here! Edy Zwierzycki: (215)[masked] Ann Kell
