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.

Also, September started our new fiscal year. Officers will remain the same for this year: Co-presidents, Debee and Janie; treasurer, Gail; secretary, Tony; and charity knitting supervisor, Nova.
