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.
