Knitters' Guild NSW Inc

Welcome to the Knitters' Guild of NSW's Website.

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.

Members of the Newcastle Group had a wonderful success with their Exhibition held on 27 and 28 June 2014 in the Scots Kirk Hall, Hamilton. The display was very capably put together by Kathy Heinrich and her team and many thanks also go to Dianne Ryder and her team in the kitchen serving tea and coffee and some wonderful slices.

"Wow, what a wonderful success the Exhibition was and all our member’s should be justifiably proud of what they achieved, both organisationally as well as with their knitting. Our craft is still very much alive and people are still very interested in seeing what we do and make." Krista Thompson, Convenor

The Motor Neurone Disease Association was the beneficiary of raffle and charity sales raising over$2500.

President's Message

Welcome to the website of the Knitters' Guild of NSW

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.
