Knit at Night Guild was formed in August 1996 by Denise
Winter and Jane Sheppard. The guild was designed to accommodate
knitters who work during the day and rapidly grew to 90+ members from
the Greater Houston area and beyond. Our membership now
numbers over 250.
are currently six chapters including KANG which meets in
the Galleria area, Knitters North of
Town (KNOT), KNOW which meets in the Katy area, Chix with
Sticks which meets during the day and Knitting in Kingwood (KIK). Our
mission is to promote education and communication, and to advance the
quality and workmanship in the members' knitting.
The guild includes both hand and
machine knitters; as well as crocheters, spinners, and weavers. Skill
levels range from beginner to intermediate to advanced knitters. Some
of our members have been trained and registered as knitting instructors
by the Craft Yarn Council, or have completed 1 or more levels of TKGA's
Master Knitting Program. The guild has two special interest groups with
their own meetings: a lace group, The Lone Star Lace Knitters and
the Master Knitter Support Group.
Regular workshops, retreats, and
provide an environment for members to learn and
advance their knitting skills. We are looking forward to knitting
workshops with instructors Susanna Hansson, Lucy Neatby, Nancy Bush and
