Letting everyone know that the July meeting is in room 118 at Bethany UMC.

Please bring an old towel, and if you have an iron and/or ironing board and wouldn't mind bringing them it would really be appreciated.

See everyone Tuesday night!

July Meeting

Greetings, Knitters!

Our July meeting is two weeks away on Tuesday, July 22 and we will FINALLY be dyeing silk scarves with the exciting Pat Lorenz of Bird Mountain Creations! (She was scheduled to come in January when we had the ice storm of the decade!)


It's fun and only $20 for the first scarf--which includes the scarf and all dyes and materials.  Additional scarves are available for a lower price after you purchase the first one.

You won't want to miss it!

Check the Ravelry group and FB page for info on the meeting location--details soon!

May Meeting--just around the corner!

Our May meeting will be Tuesday, May 27 at Bethany United Methodist Church, 118 W. 3rd South Street in Summerville. The program will be taught by Eileen and involves knitting with beads!  If you'd like to participate, here are the supplies you need to bring:


  • Size 7 circle needle on a 16 inch cord
  • 120 yards of worsted weight yarn, 
  • 24 pony beads
  • Size C crochet hook

Social Half Hour begins at 6 with snacks (I hear there will be an amazing pound cake!) and the meeting will start promptly at 6:30.  If you recall from April, we are condensing the business portion of the meeting to give more time to the programs.  If there are any committee reports, email them to me at knitoasis@gmail.com or to the Guild mailbox flowertownknittingguild@gmail.com and we will get those sent to all members before next Tuesday!

Hope to see you all then!

Programs from Feb and March: Knitted Flowers and Magic Loop Knitting


In February, Angela taught us how to make adorable knitted flowers. Some of the members brought completed flowers for a photo op at the March meeting:




Claudia sent in some pics of her wristlets that she started on Tuesday night at the Guild meeting during Lynn's Magic Loop program--and one of the finished project! Yay! Thanks again Lynn for teaching and thanks to Claudia for the photos!

New Location!

Announcing!


The Flowertown Knitting Guild—NEW Location!


Due to our growth during our first fabulous year, we have overflowed the accommodations so graciously lent to us by The Village Knittery.  Starting this month, our meetings will now be held at Bethany United Methodist Church.  We will have space there to spread out during our programs so we can continue to learn and grow throughout the upcoming year (and beyond).

Pictured below is a map showing directions from The Village Knittery to Bethany, located at 118 W. 3rd South Street in Summerville. 

Meeting will begin at 6:30 as usual, but plan to come early if you can to take part in our new “Pre-Meeting Social Time”  beginning at 6:00. Parking: If you are facing the front of the church, you’ll be parking in the lot that is on the right of the big sanctuary building.  Come in the door under the portico in the left corner (as you approach the building from the parking lot.)  Guild Greeters will be on hand to point the way.
