In 2000, a group of knitters decided to share their love of knitting with others by starting a knitting guild in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. The Red Rows Knitting Guild was established as a not-for-profit organization. It is a registered member of the Knitting Guild Association.
The Guild’s mission is to bring together friendly knitters of all experience levels to explore their craft and share their talents. We also organize knitting socials, yarn crawls, and classes.
The Red Rows Knitting Guild meets the first Tuesday of every month at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church located at 10 Delp Road (corner of 501) in Lancaster. The doors open at 6:30 pm for social time and the Business Meetings begin at 7 p.m.
Each meeting has a different theme, but all meetings provide an opportunity for Guild members to socialize and share. You are welcome as a visitor to a meeting before deciding whether to join the guild.
Questions? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org but our volunteers don’t check that account every day so don’t expect an immediate response!
Crazy Cowl Project
In January 2020 Guild members collected odds and ends of fingering weight yarn, cut them into different lengths and wrapped them in Christmas paper. Each person participating took 50 to 60 packets, opened one at a time and started knitting. You cannot cheat by opening a packet and deciding not to use it. They cast on 100 stitches on us size 4 – 16” needles and knit in the round.
