Guild Happenings
Call for Volunteers Representing PKG at OFFF

Saturday, September 28th 9 am - 5 pm and Sunday, September 29th 9 am - 4 pm. 

Are you going to Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival this year? Consider donating a couple of hours to talk to other festival goers about Puddletown Knitters Guild!

We will have a table and some free sewing patterns for you to give away as you answer questions about our guild. (We'll have a cheat sheet, don't worry.) Volunteers will be entered to win a circular needle holder.

Sign up for a two hour slot at the September meeting or email us with the day you're available and "OFFF Volunteer" in the subject line.


We're collecting finished blankets through October. So, this September meeting, please bring any finished blankets to us. We would greatly appreciate it.

Here's a reminder about the project.

We're collaborating with Rose Haven to provide handmade blankets to their guests. 

How do we make and donate 20 blankets by October? 

1. Choose a size: lap blankets and child-size preferred
2. Choose yarn: Machine washable and acrylic preferred
3. Chose a craft: Knitting? Crochet? Something else?
4. Find some friends: Knit or crochet strips and seam them together at a party.
5. Bring in your finished blanket, show it off, inspire others!
Meeting Volunteers

Thank you to the generous volunteers that help us set up, greet visitors, bring snacks, and put away chairs and tables. You make it possible for meetings to go swiftly! 

Kim Winter, our lovely volunteer coordinator, is always looking for volunteers.

Pre-meeting set up and post-meeting clean up are areas we need help in. If you're around after a meeting and able-bodied, feel free to jump in and help put away chairs if you can. No need to confirm ahead of time for clean up. Thank you.

Please email Kim at if you're interested.
Conscious Conversations

Previously known as "Knit Nights", monthly Conscious Conversations is a time we provide for knitters and crocheters who gather with likeminded people to discuss current events in the community. Those who are engaged in social media, who use Ravelry, who go to yarn shops, or who just want to chat and listen, can share thoughts, feelings, and experiences regarding race and other social justice issues in knitting. 

*This month, we're meeting:

Monday, September 23rd 
7 pm to 9 pm
New Seasons (N Williams & Fremont)
Private room near cafe
3445 N Williams Avenue 
Portland, OR 97212

​If you've been wanting to talk in person with other knitters who have been following Ravelry's news, discovering or wanting to support more BIPOC knitters, and just want to self-reflect through conversation about race, gender, personal politics, and more with other knitters, please come. :) 

See this summary of our 2019 meet ups.

By Hand Serial Issue 10

In Issue #10 of By Hand Serial, we travel Montana’s Big Sky Country, from Bozeman’s Paradise Valley to Flathead and Swan Lakes, from Glacier National Park to Swan Lake, and from Missoula’s Bitterroot Valley to the peaks of the Sapphire Mountains.

Join us in exploring Montana through the eyes of a scratch sourdough bread baker; a father and son team who has built wooden canoes by hand for almost fifty years; textile, yarn, fiber, and macrame artists; a sewist who creates rugged bags built for adventure from waxed canvas and Pendleton wools; and a jeweler who uses reclaimed metal and stones mined from the earth to create unique pieces of wearable art.
