Keep Calm and Knit On Meetup Group
Whether you are a beginning knitter or have been knitting for years, we welcome you to our “Keep Calm and Knit On” Meetup group.
Are you curious about the world of knitting? Do you like the idea of being able to create your own homemade sweaters and gifts? Do you need the time and motivation to knit alongside others? If so, this is an opportunity for you to become proficient working in a group with like-interested knitters. Bring your yarn, wool, needles, and patterns that you’re currently working on or select from a wide range of project ideas we have created here … and let’s finish those projects!
The group also looks for ideas and projects to complete together, as well as our individual projects. For example, I started another knitting group with the Elden of Bradford Retirement Residence on Side Road 10 in Bradford. Our group is giving back to the community by knitting preemie and infant hats and mitts for newly born babies from our area. We are also talking to local hospitals in our area to see where else our knitting projects are needed, as we want to knit for older children, too.
The first “Keep Calm and Knit On” Meetup group meets at The Ginger Knit House, at the knitting store within A Healthy Solution For You Wellness Centre, at 29 Holland St. W. The entrance is at the back of the building, and the shop is on the upper level. We meet one Saturday a month from 10 a.m. to noon. As the group grows, we will move to twice a month and add an evening session from 6–8 p.m. There is a small charge of $5 per person that can be used toward any new yarn purchases within The Ginger Knit House. Coffee and tea are provided.
If you have questions, feel free to call before you join our group: Cassie Landolfi, 905-715-6443.
