Larkspur Library Display Case - January 2018

Works by The Marin Knitters Guild

The Marin Knitters' Guild began in 1987 to promote local interest in the crafts of knitting and crocheting. While our name identifies us as the Marin Knitters' Guild, our membership hails from surrounding counties as well as Marin. Knitters with all levels of skill and from all areas are welcome.

At most meetings we have mini-workshops offered by experienced Guild members. The Guild also draws on the talents of the wider knitting and fiber-arts community. From time to time, we invite well-known teachers to give workshops, allowing for focused study of design and technique. We encourage beginners to learn from the experienced.

In addition to learning from each other, we work for charitable causes. We make caps and scarves for homeless people and for the military. Baby Love Ministry distributes caps and blankets to newborn babies. The Linus Project provides hand-knit blankets to needy children. We do group projects, go on field trips, and hold yarn swaps and pot lucks. Many members enter their work successfully in the Marin County Fair.

We meet on the second Saturday of each month, from 10 a.m. to noon, in the Corte Madera Town Center’s Community Room. Learn more about us at our web site (www.marinknittersguild.org), and go to our group on Ravelry. Take one of our cards from the stack near this display case. Join us!
