|In 1985 the knitting scene in Seattle was sparse. In response to an article that appeared in Vogue Knitting urging formation of local chapters of The Knitting Guild of America, a group of knitters met regularly at Tinctoria on Stone Way. From that initial core group the Seattle Knitters Guild has grown into an organization with over 200 members.
Nearly twenty-five years later, the Guild continues to provide a supportive environment for knitters. Through a network of enthusiastic volunteers, it presents programs that stimulate the imagination and enhance knitting skills. The Guild publishes a monthly newsletter and maintains an extensive lending library for its membership. Some Guild members are also involved in educational and philanthropic projects within the greater Seattle area.
