Put simply: the Minnesota Knitters' Guild is a group of 700 people and counting who knit, even if just a little.
Our members range in age from pre-teen to well into the golden years, have knitting abilities that span the entire spectrum, and live all over the world (but, you guessed it, primarily in Minnesota).
Our mission statement is to promote interest, appreciation, education and fellowship in the art of knitting.
Membership is open to all who are interested in the purpose of The Guild, no matter their age, race, ethnicity, citizenship status, socioeconomic status, religion, gender identity, or political persuasion. We hope that you join us!

Where do we meet?
The Minnesota Knitters' Guild generally meets in Minneapolis on the third Tuesday of each month from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Textile Center.*
The Northern Lights Affiliate of the Guild meets in Duluth on the third Wednesday of each month from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Portman Community Center.
*Some meetings, like our State Fair round up in September and our Annual Tea in February, don't follow this rule. We communicate that as best we can via this website, our various social media channels, and our member email list.
What are monthly meetings like?
Monthly meetings draw anywhere from 40 to 100 members depending on the programming, whether or not there's free food, and, let's face it, the weather.
Get the most out of your love of knitting! Membership benefits include pre-registration for Yarnover, a subscription to our quarterly Cable Gram, organized public service projects and camaraderie with fellow knitters. Annual dues are $30.
