What we're about

Welcome to Yarn Addicts of Manchester, a woolly haven for crocheters and knitters since February 2015!

The aim of the group is to get together with like-minded people to crochet and knit in a sociable environment, discover new stitches, make new friends and talk about all things woolly! Pre-Covid, we would meet twice a month in Manchester city centre (one Saturday morning and one Thursday evening). We have continued this with Zoom and have been even more active with Saturday socials, quiz nights, afternoon tea parties ...

We are the official Manchester branch of the Knitting and Crochet Guild, a UK charity that was established in 1978 to preserve the art of crochet and knitting and to encourage education and innovation.

We try to get involved with charity projects throughout the year which is a great way to support the local community ... and use up leftover wool!

If you love to crochet and knit, are new to Manchester, want to make new friends or just get out of the house (once Covid has disappeared), bring along your current project and join us.

Everyone is welcome, just click the RSVP button if you like the sound of the event.

Please note that there is an annual £3 membership which goes towards the Meetup hosting fee (a cost of almost £100 every 6 months) and can be paid here: https://www.meetup.com/YarnAddictsOfManchester/dues/

Any surplus at the end of the year will be donated to Emmeline's Pantry, a food bank we have supported for 5 years.

We're all looking forward to meeting you!

Best wishes, Helen

Organiser of Yarn Addicts of Manchester

RSVP's: Please only sign up to an event if you fully intend to come along.

We would appreciate it if could change your RSVP if your plans change and you can no longer make it, wherever possible, no later than 24 hours before the event. If you 'no show', it stops someone from the waitlist taking your place who would have loved the opportunity to join. It also saves us delaying the start time of the event if we think you're still coming along.

In line with the majority of Meetup groups, we operate a “3 no-shows and you're out” policy.

Disclaimer: Yarn Addicts of Manchester is not a business, we simply facilitate people getting together. Meetup, Yarn Addicts of Manchester, its Organisers and Event Hosts accept no responsibility and/or liability for any situations that may occur at Meetup or third party events.

You are responsible for purchasing your own ticket for events (where applicable). If a pre-booked, ticketed event is cancelled by a third party, it is your responsibility to organise a refund with the venue.
