What we're about

We're a group of enthusiastic knitters and crocheters. Some of us are brand new to the hobby and others of us are seasoned veterans. We welcome new members of any age, gender or ability! In fact, we intermediate and advanced knitters and crocheters are more than delighted to help out those getting started.

Our Meetups are pretty simple. We sit around, talk, work on whatever we've brought that day and usually munch on something. We've got more Meetups than you can shake a stick at. Click the Calendar link http://www.meetup.com/austinknitting/calendar/ and find one that meets your needs!

Knot Just Knitters at Genuine Joe's

Genuine Joe Coffeehouse

• What we'll do We are Knot Just Knitters! As the name suggests, we also have crocheters, spinners, the occasional weaver or other fiber artist. We welcome those of every skill level! • What to bring Yourself, your project/s and supplies, and some positive conversation! • Important to know We are primarily a social group and we have adult conversations, so keep that in mind. Also, the regulars don't usually RSVP so don't be intimidated by a low attendance numbers! We're still here! • Directions The building is a bit easy to miss, but look for the bright blue awning of the next-door child-care center and pull in there. Parking is in back of the building - watch out for signs indicating parking only for the child-care center. The room fee is a $15 tab per hour for the whole room, which is quite easy to keep up. They have a variety of gluten-free and normal baked goods and snacks, soda, and of course coffee, tea, and free WiFi if you want to bring a laptop or other device. * Join the facebook group as well to chat to those you've met! https://www.facebook.com/groups/140961766767744/ (Members are added after they've been to the group to keep it intimate!)

We Dig Crafts

The Dig Pub

Craft with Craft. Bring the portable CRAFT of your choice and enjoy it alongside CRAFT beer (or whatever) and friendly faces sporting crafty wit*. We're pretty darn fun. For reals, we knit in a bar, so we are nothing like your mama's stitch & bitch. Knit, Crochet, Cross stitch, or craft whatever lap work you are into at the moment. The lighting is pretty good. Still, you might want to bring an easy project as a backup...because we do craft in a bar! The Dig Pub, a 21+up bar, has a fantastic craft beer selection, a good wine list, sodas, and tea. They also have a great menu if you want to have dinner. Many Wednesdays are Pint Night where if you try the featured beer, you get to keep a glass. Happy Hour goes until 7pm, so we'll start a tiny bit before at 6:50pm. Someone is usually there until 10pm. We crochet in a bar! Please RSVP if you can make it. Regulars, please RSVP "no" if you know you can not make it. We'll meet if we have four or more. RSVPs are only open until the afternoon of the event, so everyone can plan their evenings. One more thing, because we... (say it with us...) "knit in a bar" (* great job * !)... we are not the best group for teaching. If you have learned elsewhere and come to us with specific questions, we might be able to help. If you are brand new to one of the crafts, we recommend you find a class at your local yarn shop. *We So Punny!

The Steeping Room on Lamar

The Steeping Room

The Steeping Room allows a maximum reservation of 8. If we go over 8 guests, the late-comers will not necessarily be seated with the larger group. A waiting list will be created if necessary. Please make sure that your RSVP is correct by 11:00am on Wednesday morning. We enjoy everyone participating in this group. We have limited the number of people at this meetup because of the size of the restaurant, and we need 100% commitment from everyone who RSVP's. If you RSVP and then your plans change, please change your status asap. If you have any questions, please contact Johanna Staples, the organizer, directly. Tell the wait staff you are part of the Wednesday night knitting group if you are unsure.
