Note: due to the pandemic, meetings in 2021 will be virtual for the foreseeable future. Check Knitters News periodically and read the monthly News Blast for announcements.
We are pleased to announce the program speakers for the first quarter of 2021. Since we are unable (until further notice) to travel the world in pursuit of knitting pleasures, we are traveling by armchair to bring some of the world’s knitters and designers to you via Zoom. The first months of 2021 feature international speakers. Click on the speaker’s program title for meeting details, including meeting time. Important! International speakers may present at different times than usual.
Participants must register for each individual meeting for an individual Zoom link. Registration information for Zoom meetings are published in the monthly News Blast, emailed to members typically on the Thursday prior to the next Guild meeting. For security reasons, Zoom registration links are not published on the website.
We are looking forward to a year of exciting programs with wonderful speakers and events. Here is the 2021 schedule. Click on any Program Title for more information (available about two to three months before the meeting date).
