|The only requirement for membership in the Seattle Knitters Guild is the enjoyment of knitting. Our members are of all experience levels and the Guild welcomes all knitters!
Members are encouraged to find new friends and the Guild is happy to provide the means (through the website, Cablegram and Ravelry Group) for smaller knitting groups to form in the Seattle area. If you would like to start a smaller, less formal group, please contact our Newsletter Editor. Notices of new groups or groups looking for members will appear in the Cablegram.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. The Librarian will have the library cart open for business. Paid members in good standing may check out books. The Membership Chair or another Board member will be at the entrance to answer any questions you may have, or if you wish to join, you will find information on the front table.
The meeting will begin at 7:00 p.m.
The presentation is followed by a short break of 15 or 20 minutes and then Show and Tell commences. Members and guests are invited to bring and show knit items they have completed. Everyone is inspired by this exchange of sharing!
