Old Pueblo Knitters
Old Pueblo Knitters Guild of Tucson is a chapter of The Knitting Guild Association. Our mission is to provide communication and education to people wishing to advance the quality of workmanship and creativity in knitting.
Join the knitting fun with other Tucson area knitters at the Old Pueblo Knitters Guild meetings. Each meeting includes discussion of upcoming events, charity knitting projects, show and share of member's projects, and help solving individual knitting problems. A program on some facet of knitting creativity follows a refreshment break. Anyone interested in knitting is welcome at our meetings.
Ongoing Community Service knitting includes knitting: sweaters, ponchos, scarves, hats, and mittens for Native American school children with The Navajo Project; hats for The Kids' Closet; scarves for active duty military through Operation Gratitude; preemie baby caps and booties for local hospitals; Project Linus blankets; and hats for chemotherapy patients of all ages.
Members and people in the community generously donate yarn, patterns and tools to the Guild where they are used for charity knitting or purchased for personal use by Guild Members.
The Guild hosts Workshops to advance our member knitting skills throughout the year featuring nationally recognized knitters, specialty yarn companies, our local yarn store sponsors, or talented local artists, such as Clare Park, Helen LeMaire, Tama White, Krysten Lewelling of Gherkin's Bucket.
A newsletter is published monthly by the Old Pueblo Knitters.
