Membership in the Guild includes knitters of wildly varying ages and all skill levels from beginner on up; it’s a great bunch of very helpful and positive folks. It’s a good way to get a handle on what knitting activities are going on at any given time in the Santa Cruz area.
Each meeting usually begins with a short presentation, often a “how to” on a particular technique … sometimes information on a particular type of fiber or a designer; then everyone present has the opportunity to share current and especially newly completed projects. It’s always fun to see what other knitters are working on, even when they may not be things I’d choose to make.
Other optional events may include special classes held locally, expeditions and knitting retreats. Membership dues are $24/year, and you’re ! welcome to visit whichever meeting is most convenient for you and check it out to see if this seems like something you’ll enjoy before paying anything.
NIGHT MEETING is the second Tuesday evening of each month from 6:30 to 8:30 pm in the Fireside Room of the Community Church at 411 Roxas Street, in Santa Cruz. (near Morrissey Blvd. exit on Highway 1)
DAY MEETING is the third Thursday morning of each month from 10 am to noon at Holy Cross Church in Santa Cruz. Our meeting room is toward the back of the complex, between the gym and the playing field. As you look at the Holy Cross complex (on High Street), drive as far to the left side of it as the road allows. The driveway to the right that goes behind the old high school building becomes apparent. Once you follow the driveway a little downhill you will enter a large parking area; the gym and the playing field are visible, and our meeting room is between them.
[Note: the one regular exception to above is December, when we all gather at a member’s home for a holiday party on the first Wednesday evening of the month.]
