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.

A greater demand for meeting space at the Headquarters library has been caused by the upcoming Capital Improvement Projects at the St. Louis County Library. As a result, there are several months when we will not be meeting at the Headquarters branch. See below for details. Click here to see a map with locations of all the county libraries.

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. For more knitting destinations, check: http://www.knittersreview.com/upcoming_events.asp.
