Stitcher Nights in #yyj

A hanging flower basket on the street in Victo...Image via WikipediaAnother list from my JDF Recreation knitting classes - I hate to set my beginner knitters free without some support. The first week of class I give them links to videos, how-to websites in case they need some extra help until the next class. But, when we are nearing the end of classes, of course I encourage them to join a weekly Stitch N Bitch or the like!

So, I give you the 'current as of January 2011' list of knitting groups in Victoria, BC - note these groups keep moving around, not all are listed in one single place...so I will have to keep updating this list! As I always advise the beginners, 'call to confirm/don't make a special trip' just in case the group folded/moved.

  1. Wow, this is great! I had no idea YYJ had so many stitch nights. (I found you through Janis, who just started following me on Twitter, she mentioned you. Can't find you on Rav...
