Welcome to the Knitters' Guild NSW

 



The Knitters' Guild is a not-for-profit organisation promoting and encouraging the skills of Knitting and Crochet amongst its members and the wider community.

The Knitters' Guild NSW Inc. was established more than 30 years ago to promote and encourage hand knitting and crochet. The Guild provides the opportunity for members to learn both traditional and modern techniques, and to keep up with the latest developments in material developments and knitting and crochet design in Australia and internationally. It also encourages maintenance of high standards in design and technique, and encourages the exhibition of members’ work. We also encourage local dyers and retailers to become retail members of our organisation, which brings benefits to both their business and to our members.

Our 800 members have the opportunity to attend local group meetings, workshops, and classes. They can undertake assessable tasks for certificates, and partake in the many social and educational opportunities offered by the Guild across the state. Knitting and crochet are far from moribund crafts. New techniques and ways of creating fabrics are being developed constantly by designers around the world, and the Guild is in the forefront of these developments, offering classes and workshops in both traditional and modern techniques and skills, and hosting international teachers. To find out more please explore the site.

Camp is very soon

 

As the weekend is getting close, now is the time to start working on your competition entries!  The first competition is very easy and we hope everyone will enter.   Just make a square – knitted, crocheted or a combination of the two. It must be in the Guild colours, ie red and green, but may include white as well, if you prefer. The square must be 15cm x 15cm. You can use any weight yarn, any fibre and any stitch you want. The judge (Norah Gaughan) will be looking for interesting ideas, great use of colour and the WOW factor. You can of course reclaim your square at the end of the weekend but the Guild would really appreciate it if you would donate it to us so that the squares can be used for exhibitions and displays in the future.

The second competition is a One Skein Challenge.  Knit, crochet or use a combination of both techniques to create anything you want. HOWEVER, the item must use no more than one skein of yarn, maximum 100g. So if you want to make something colourful, you need a skein of colourful yarn – no mixing of skeins allowed.
