Knitting & Crochet Guild

Welcome to the Guild

We are a national educational charity dedicated to UK domestic hand knitting, machine knitting and crochet, run by volunteers and supported by subscriptions and donations. We have a local network of branches and we take part in exhibitions and events.

We are based in the UK and have national and international branches. You don't need a qualification to join. We welcome all levels of expertise from beginners to experts and to those who have an interest in the history and future of these crafts. Find out more on why we think the Guild is special and why it is different from other groups.
