If you're local and haven't joined the Rochester Knitting Guild yet, why the heck not?! The guild offers monthly meetings with fellow fiber enthusiasts, exclusive workshops with nationally known instructors, access to the Guild library and more.

Does your love of fiber go beyond knit & crochet? The Weavers' Guild of Rochester offers classes on all things fiber, whether you want to learn to weave, spin, dye yarn, rug punch and more! Check out their class list for updated offerings.

Tina Turner Knits (no, not THAT Tina Turner) is a fantastic local knitting resource! Tina has a shop and classroom space located right in Rochester, NY offering yarn, open help times, classes, sit & stitch and more! She also organizes the Tina Turner Knits Fiber Arts Festival every February that we love to attend!

Canal Days is a local favorite! Occurring in June each year, this lively festival has something for everyone.
