Emma Rothapfel's winning entry for the 2015 Knit Camp Show and Tell.

Emma is from the Maitland Group and her "Smokey Scarf" was based on a photograph of her cat Smokey, who passed away last year. She writes "it was quite a process to design the chart from scratch and I had to teach myself Double Knitting to be able to make it. I have been knitting it since April this year and I am very happy to have finally finished it. I am very Happy with the end result." 

The Judge of Show and Tell, Ann Budd, as well as the Guild members were also very happy and impressed with the end result of Emma's work, she deserved her prize..

President's Message

Welcome to the website of the Knitters' Guild NSW.

Life Member Nancy Gundry and Guild President Sally Ogilvie 

The Guild began nearly 30 years ago in the Northern suburbs of Sydney, and has since become a State-wide organisation with 24 groups around the State and approximately 800 members.

The Guild exists to promote the crafts of knitting and crochet.  We hold monthly local group meetings and workshops, we organise charity knitting events, we provide the judges for many of the Shows around the State, we maintain an archival collection of knitting and crochet from the mid-1800’s onwards, and we hold State-wide events such as our bi-annual knitting camp weekend. You can also see what we’re up to by following us on Twitter,  on Facebook and in Ravelry.

If you would like more information please contact the Secretary of the Executive Committee at or a local convenor, using the locations tab at the top of the page.
