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.

New Beginnings

Palmetto Purlers is a TKGA-affiliated knitting guild that meets from 7 to 9 p.m. on the 4th Tuesday of every month for a business meeting and educational program. We also have a Knit-In at the Happy Bookseller on Forest Drive the 2nd Thursday of every month. Our members include a variety of knitters, from beginner to advanced. We have people who would be more than happy to teach you how to knit if you are interested. Our programs cover a variety of topics, from general casting-on methods to sock classes to making stitch markers and everything you can think of in between. Our guild participates in a number of charity knitting activities, including Project Linus, Cubs for Kids, Precious Pals, Hats for Homeless, and helmet liners for soldiers.

September starts our new fiscal year, which also means our new officers take over. We would like to say “thanks” to Beverly, who passed the torch on to our new co-presidents, Debee and Janie; as well as to our returning treasurer, Gail; secretary, Tony; and charity knitting supervisor, Nova. Thank you to all who served last year, and thanks in advance to those who will be serving this year.

With the new year we have a new Web site for general information about the guild and our activities. Members, we will still be using the Yahoo group for discussion boards, reminders, and helpful materials. Charity forms are available there as well.
