Welcome

See what's happening at the Greater Boston Knitting Guild as we knit our projects and our lives together, one stitch at a time.

Home: Welcome

We are happy you're here. Our Members come from 28 states (so far!), Portugal, Canada and Australia. The Membership includes beginners, advanced, experts, and all levels in between.   
 
We share a curiosity of all things knit, crochet and fiber.  We provide a variety of programs and events to satisfy the curious.  Together we learn, we teach, we pass the craft down through the next generation and find inspiration.  Our Guild brings the world of making, design, and fiber to our Membership. 
 
Gather your yarn, grab your needles, and join us at any of our events for a smile, a new friend, and a spark of inspiration.  It’s nice to be with people who understand why your stash is so large or your number of works in progress is what it is!
Looking forward to a very busy 2024 at the Greater Boston Knitting Guild with you.
 
- Cynthia Doherty, President

Knitting for Good

Connections

Since 1993, GBKG members have been putting our needles and crochet hooks to work for others.  You can help by making prayer shawls, hats, cowls, scarfs, gloves and mittens.  Shawls for both men and women are donated to Brigham and Women’s Hospital.  Infant items are donated to the Newborn Baby Unit and Boston Medical Center.

Items sized for children through adults are distributed through The Knitting Connection serving Massachusetts and New Hampshire.  We also donate items to the Women’s Lunch Place in Boston and the Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy Coalition.

Every head deserves a hat.  We believe “It’s knitting for GOOD”.
