The Palmetto Purlers is a local TKGA affiliated knitting guild. Our membership consists of seasoned knitters as well as those who are just learning. The guild also participates in charity knitting activities. Twice a month we meet at local shops to knit together, once in Columbia, and once in Lexington. These knit-ins are open to anyone who is interested in joining us. We also have a monthly guild meeting. Guild business is conducted at this meeting, followed by a knitting related educational program. These meetings are for dues paying members. For more information email us.

The Palmetto Purlers are no longer conducting monthly meetings. We are still meeting for Knit-ins at the following places. McAlisters on Forest Drive on the 2nd Thursday and 4th Tuesday of each month and The Atlanta Bread Company on Hwy 378 across from Lexington Medical Center on the 3rd Saturday.

Come out and join us for friendly conversation, lots of knitting, and project sharing. There is always someone to help get you over that bump in the row.

Less than Two Weeks until the Workshop with Margaret Radcliffe

There's still time to sign up for classes with Margaret Radcliffe. These classes still have spaces available:

Seaming Without Sewing
Friday, May 3, 2013, 5:30-8:30 p.m.
Love to knit but hate to seam? Knit beautiful garments, but hate the way they look when they're  finished? Finishing can make the difference between "professionally hand crafted" and "home made." If you have sweaters in pieces just waiting to be finished because you find sewing annoying, have trouble seeing to sew, difficulty holding a sewing needle, or just plain hate to sew, this class is for you. Learn to use crochet, binding off, picking up, and knitting on to make perfect seams, plus perfect afterthought pockets and buttonholes.
Class limited to 20 students, $50 per person.

The Lazy Knitter's Guide to Pattern Stitches
Saturday, May 4, 2012, 9 a.m.-12 noon
A whole bag of tricks for those who love to knit and hate to purl! Learn faux ribbing, a substitute for moss stitch, even lace patterns with nary a purl stitch. Garter ladders, lazy rib, brioche stitch, rose fabric, and tubular knitting will all be taught and swatched.
Class limited to 30 students, $50 per person.

Bring out the Best in your Variegated Yarn
Saturday, May 4, 2012, 1:30-4:30 p.m.
Learn to avoid stripes, highlight desired colors, and emphasize texture. Review a variety of yarns and learn their properties, while knitting swatches to experiment with textured stitches, multiple strands, and stitch count.
Class limited to 30 students, $50 per person.

The homework for all the classes can be found here

Classes will be held at Faith United Methodist Church in Lexington, SC.
