London Area Knitters

I've had a few comments inquiring about the new group. Unfortunately I am not active in the group and therefore have limited information about it.

What I do know:

They call themselves London Area Knitters or LAK for short.
They meet on the 2nd Monday of each month at Cotton-By-Post in Arva.
They say they are still in the process of organizing / establishing.
They plan to do group trips as well as monthly learning opportunities at meetings.

I do not know the agenda or if there is a membership fee.
I don't believe they currently have a web presence but my best suggestion is to contact Cotton-By-Post directly for further information.

Best suggestion is to check out Ravelry as they do have a group there as well. 

Happy Knitting!

New Group pending

There is in the works, a new knitting group / guild in London, Ontario. I don't have many details at this point but I can say that the first meeting will be February 13, 2012 at Cotton-By-Post.

As I receive information I will do my best to update here. This promises to be an open group with potential for events and speakers, especially with the backing of the LYS. I should mention that this is NOT in anyway being held by the store, it is only the site where it is going to be held. I'm not certain if the store will have any information but you can try.

Happy Knitting!

Gathering Threads

This weekend the London chapter of the Canadian Embroiderers' Guild will be holding Gathering Threads event. It starts today, May 12th and runs until May 15 at a few locations throughout London. Please see the link for more details.

Don't be confused by the embroidery creators of this event, it truly is a fiber and textile event. There will be rughookers, tatters, smockers, quilters, binders and the Forest City Knitters will be participating this year too! Please stop by and say Hi,  Corazenia & myself there this Saturday between 1 and 5.

Forest City Knitters, aka FCK

Greetings one and all! There are still many groups that meet regularly around London Ontario, one that has been doing so for many years is the Forest City Knit Club. This group has been around in excess of 14 years and is currently trying to grow in membership, diversity and expanding their offerings.

Please check out their web space at 

Some quick details:
Monthly meetings during fall, winter and spring on the 3rd Tuesday of the month.
Small membership fee but you are welcome to check it out before signing up.
Ample parking available
Opportunity to learn & share in a group setting - there's lots of laughter here!

Did you know that some retailers offer a discount with a guild or group membership? FCK does provide a membership card that you can use for this purpose!

The May 2011 meeting will be featuring Joan from the Little Red Mitten!

I have been a member of this group for several years and although I don't always make it to the meetings the meetings always feel like coming home. For more information please click on the link above and go to the groups Wiki space. I hope you can join us!

Happy Holidays!

It's been a while since I've posted here, actually any where. I've been a little occupied with moving, Christmas knitting etc. Anyway, if you do happen to stop in here and are interested in contributing to this blog, are local to London (and area) please comment and let me know. Knit-London has many voices and I am sure there are some that have no interest in setting up a personal blog, but could be interested in a few posts here.

I've created a few little flyers/hand outs that I will bring to the forth coming Knit London meeting. As always, please feel free to spread word of our meeting on the 1st Monday of the Month at Coffee Culture on Dundas. Everyone is welcome; knitters of all levels, crocheters or crafter of any sort. The meeting can be for any one that would just like a night out with like minded peeps.

There were several attempts at meeting outside of the standard one last month. I'm sorry to say that we didn't wind up connecting, however I would still very happily post anything for anyone trying to get another meeting night arranged. I would very much like to do this more than once a month. I know that there are people that can't make Mondays - or downtown. Suggest away!

Hope you've all have a great Holiday and I hope to see you soon!

Hutton House

If you haven't started your Christmas shopping yet or if you just want to stop in and get something for yourself, this craft sale is not to be missed. The pottery is lovely and the weaving is to be gushed over.

I've honestly never been to this sale, but I've seen the products . .and I'll be there. So if you go and see me comin' watch out. I've got some pointy elbows.

BTW, the money goes to a great cause!

November Meet up

Not sure if anyone actually reads this or not. The next meet up will be tomorrow, Monday Nov 3. At Coffee Culture on Dundas. I'm sure that there will be a knitter/crafter or 2 starting at around 6.

Please join us. You can't miss us. And if you would like to learn, please feel free to come! We are a rather boisterous group so you may have to speak up . . but if we know you need help, we're there for you!

BTW, if you care to bring a non-perishable food item for the London Food Bank, I will be dropping off contributions made at the gathering.
