What we're about

Welcome to Philly Knits! Our resource website is PhillyKnits.org (http://www.phillyknits.org/), to learn how to knit, crochet, etc, and about other groups and information. Most of our meetups are well attended, however many attendees do not RSVP, so the attendance level looks artificially low.

Our meetups are located only in the city of Philadelphia, with the exception of special events, such as the New Jersey Sheep and Fiber Festival.

Through our meetup you will receive posting about regularly scheduled meetups, special events, plus you can post your own Fiber Arts gatherings.

We also post requests for volunteers for educational, charity, and artistic projects, and we work with local museums, libraries, educational institutions, and rehabilitation facilities.

We're into spreading the joy of Fiber Arts (knitting, crochet, pompoms, sewing, etc.) across Philadelphia. Plus, we collect 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..

Again, thanks for joining Philly Knits and we look forward to meeting up with you!
