Smoky Mountain Knitting Guild offers free classes

Aug 20, 2013

The Smoky Mountain Knitting Guild will once again offer free knitting classes for adult beginners. This year’s fall session will begin at 1 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 10, in the board room of the Waynesville Library, located at 678 S Haywood St. The session will run for six weeks, giving new (or returning) knitters the opportunity to learn basic stitches.  As start-up materials are provided at no charge, class size is limited and pre-registration is required.

The Smoky Mountain Knitting Guild — now with almost 100 members — provides knitters, regardless of skill or experience, with opportunities for education, fellowship and the sharing of the craft they love. The Guild holds monthly meetings for its members, each featuring an educational program on a wide variety of topics for knitters of all abilities. The Guild also sponsors two retreats each year, hosts informal yarn safaris and road trips, publishes a monthly newsletter and presents its annual benefit Fashion Show & Raffle. Motivated knitters are also welcome in the several knitting circles that meet informally throughout the week in Waynesville.

To register for the guild's free knitting classes, call Susan Lee at 456-7826. The guild can also be contacted at or
