About Us

The Kitchener-Waterloo Knitters’ Guild is a volunteer run non-profit community of knitters.

In October 1986, a group of knitters gathered together to form the Guild. The love of knitting continues and new members are always welcome. We strive to:

  • improve the skill and artistry of our craft
  • increase the interest in, and knowledge of, knitting and related activities
  • promote and celebrate our craft in the Kitchener-Waterloo area

Membership is open to knitters of all ages and skill levels. Our virtual monthly meetings are held on the 2nd Tuesday of the month (7-9pm) from September to May plus every other year we have an adjudicated show in June. We also host the KW Knitters’ Fair every year on the second Saturday in September. Meetings feature a guest speaker as well as Guild Announcements, member Show & Tell, What’s on your needles and our virtual Yarn Table. We end each meeting by spinning the wheel of member names for a fabulous door prize – and you have to be there to win;)

In January 2023 the Guild Members were surveyed and based on results the Board voted to continue with virtual member meetings indefinitely. The membership fee for the 2023/24 guild year is $35 and expires July 31st 2024.

The KWKG is a volunteer run organization with virtual board meetings held on the 1st Tuesday of the Month (7-9pm). Each year we plan content beyond the monthly meetings including Extras & Workshops dependent on member interest and volunteer availability.
