Next Meetup

Afternoon Knitting Field Trip
We will be meeting on the Ground Floor near the Coffee Bar. New schedule: 1st Thursday - Roots Pizza Lincoln Square 2nd Thursday - Farmers Table 3rd Thursday - La Boulangerie on Wilson 4th Thursday - Field Trip If there is a fifth Thursday in the month, it will be another Field Trip to explore a new location or revisit an old favorite. Please keep your RSVPs up to date. Meetup attendance is limited based on venue. Repeat no-shows will be asked to leave the group. Much like the places we go, the Thursday afternoon knitters are a great group of regulars always welcoming new people (who often become regulars). We encourage crocheters, cross-stitchers, and other people who play with silent string to come, too. We will not teach you to knit, though we all help each other with bits of technique. Thursdays tend to be as much about talking as they are about knitting. Our location rotates every week. We do field trips to new places as well, so be sure to check meetup to see where we are each Thursday. Please feel free to make suggestions for Field Trip days. We are always happy to try a new place! (Keep in mind we need enough space to accommodate a large group sitting for several hours.) As always, we will be collecting the $1 meetup fee, and we ask as a courtesy to our venues that you order something -- even if it's just a coffee -- while we use their space. Questions?
