For the rest of the Guild year we will be shining a spotlight on one LYS (Local Yarn Store) each month. We hope that this series can help us to celebrate some of the wonderful LYS’s who work hard to make our hobbies possible, and to reclaim some of the joy we experienced by meeting with vendors at in-person meetings. First up is Tracy Minnema, owner and founder of A River of Yarn in Keene, Ontario!Continue reading

At our final meeting of 2020, we spent the evening with Amy Singer, Editor, Publisher and Founder of the Knitty.com magazine. Amy launched Knitty.com in 2002 “to feature the knitting talent she’d been seeing on blogs all over the world in one tidy, professional-looking website”. In the 18 years since its debut, the quarterly Knitty magazine has launched many designers and published hundreds of patterns.
After a Knitty FO Fashion Show, followed by Amy’s presentation, chatter about a Knitty make-along soon started, and, well… here we are. All TKG Members are invited to the Knitty Make-Along (MAL)! Find all the details about participating below, the party links will be shared closer to the event.
