We’re turning 10!

Ten years ago in March a small group of women met in a Starbucks to discuss creating a Knitters’ Guild for the Fraser Valley area. We wanted to create place for knitters to come together to knit, learn, and laugh.

In honour of our 10 Year Anniversary we are offering a substantial discount on membership fees. From now until April 2018 membership in the Guild is only $2. This includes the Guild newsletter, access to meetings and programs, voting privileges, and of course, a membership card that when presented at 88 Stitches, Valley Yarns, and both Urban Yarns location, you will receive 10% off regular priced items.

Our next meeting is January 25th, 2018 in the multi-purpose room at Chartwell Renaissance, 6676 203 St.. Doors open at 6:30pm, meeting starts at 7pm.

Please join us to help celebrate 10 amazing years!

Happy New Year!

A new year and a new location for the Guild. After much discussion and a trial meeting the members have decided to change meeting locations.

We are now meeting at the Chartwell Renaissance, 6676 203rd St., Langley. We are meeting in the multi-purpose room, on the first floor, up a slight ramp, left from the lobby. Doors open for us at 7:30pm. Everyone is welcome. Please sign in at the front desk.

 

 

Website Neglect

Our website and blog has been sadly neglected. We’ve had some difficulty finding someone that is as passionate about blogging as we are about knitting.

We are still active. Meeting once a month from September to November and January to June. And attending both the Lower Mainland Sheep Producers Association’s(LMSPA) annual fleece sale, Wool ‘n’ Ewe A-Fair, and Fibres West.

We will continue to look for someone to update the website regularly but until then we invite you to join as on Facebook and Ravelry, where we have a more active presence. And someone is always monitoring the email account so if you have any questions you can email us at fvknittingguild@gmail.com.

Our meetings are held the 4th Wednesday of the month at Christ the Redeemer Anglican Church (16613 Bell Road, Surrey). We meet on the lower level, behind the church, in the daycare. Meetings start at 7:30pm.

This years meeting dates are:

October 28th, 2015
November 25th, 2015
January 27th, 2016
February 24th, 2016
March 23rd, 2016
April 27th, 2016
May 25th, 2016 (This will be our Annual General Meeting)
June 22nd, 2016

We welcome anyone that is interested to join us at one of our meetings.

back at it!

We are going to do a better job of providing updates here. Kinda how we used to.

 

We’ve just had our October meeting and it was small and cozy. It’s a 5-Wednesday month, which can be confusing, but the newsletter came out today – a great reminder.

 

We had 8 in attendance, and covered everything from ‘reading your knitting’ to cast-ons, and we had a round of in-progress and on-phone show and tell. Show and tell really is great. It’s where you can see what others have done, and maybe learn something about a yarn or a technique. At every meeting, try to come prepared to show and tell!

 

Our November meeting is occurring on the 4th Wednesday of the month and will be a potluck with a swap. Got yarn, needles or books that you want to swap? Bring it. More details to follow in the member newsletter.
