Estes Valley Knitting Guild
The Estes Valley Knitting Guild is now official. This guild is part of the national TKGA (The Knitting Guild Association). There are over 10,000 members and is the largest knitting association in America. We are so lucky to have a local chapter locate in our community.
The Estes Valley Knitting Guild is a starting point for knitters searching for new ideas, products, markets, patterns and fellow knitters who share the excitement of knitting.
The Estes Valley Knitting Guild will begin meeting on the second Thursday of each month at the Fiber Arts Center (1350 Graves Ave, Estes Park) from 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM.

Front Range Knitting Guild
The Front Range Knitting Guild is a non-profit organization that is affiliated with The Knitting Guild Association (TKGA).
The guild was founded by Ann Young in 2006 to serve the knitters of Northern Colorado, and its mission is to promote and advance the quality, workmanship, and creativity of knitting.
The guild has a diverse membership with varying levels of knitting expertise, but we all share a passion for knitting.
Monthly meetings include a knitting-related educational program, show-and-share, book raffle and social time.
As a chapter of the TKGA, the guild sponsors a monthly Master Knitters support group for its members.
The guild also sponsors periodic hands-on knitting workshops to enrich its members’ enjoyment and mastery of knitting.
