How we formed:
The Saskatoon Knitting Circle (SKC) first started meeting in 2005. Bonnie Zink, SKC’s founder, began gathering stitchers around tables in local coffee shops and businesses as a way to get to know her community and meet new friends.
Who we are:
The SKC is a group of stitchers who love their crafts. We are knitters. We are crocheters. We are cross stitchers. We are quilters and seamstresses. We love to stitch and share our craft with everyone. But most of all we are a creative group of people who bond over a love of fibre and the tools we use to transform that fibre into wonderful items that include love in each and every stitch.
What we do:
All forms of stitchery are allowed and encouraged. We knit for ourselves, for our loved ones, and for charity.
Where and when we do it:
We meet each Sunday afternoon at 2:00 pm in the lobby of the Alice Turner Public Library in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. We do not meet on holidays. We welcome stitchers of all shapes and sizes to drop into our come-and-go sessions.
Why we do it:
Stitching is a lifestyle. Most of us couldn’t imagine days without stitching. Sharing our love of our crafts is natural for knitters. Stephanie Pearl Macfee, knitter, writer and blogger, said it best:
“…the number one reason knitters knit is because they are so smart that they need knitting to make boring things interesting. Knitters are so compellingly clever that they simply can’t tolerate boredom. It takes more to engage and entertain this kind of human, and they need an outlet or they get into trouble.”
