GUILD MEETINGS:

We normally try to schedule regular guild meetings (except Potluck and Founders' Day Luncheons, etc.) for the second Saturday of each month from 2:00 to 4:00 PM at the main Library Headquarters Auditorium, 1640 South Lindbergh Boulevard (opposite Plaza Frontenac), St. Louis, MO (unless noted otherwise).  The County Library Meeting Room Lottery is now held twice a year so actual meeting dates are determined six months at a time.  Please check our calendar below and mark your own calendar accordingly. Check calendar (below) for exceptions.

The Designated Knitter is usually available from 1:30 to 2:00 PM for knitting assistance prior to the meetings.  Check our Knit-Along Page for info on Knit-Alongs before the regular guild meeting (starting at 12:30).

Check out our Greater St Louis Knitters' Guild group on Ravelry!

 All guild-related events are in RED.

         If you know of other knit-related events that you'd like to see included, send an email.
