Worldwide Knit in Public Day: Seattle International Fountain (or the Center House if it's rainy) -- 11am to 3pm, 18 June 2011. Tell all your knitting friends! Let's show the public the many faces of knitters. Click on the Events
section for more details.
The results of the poll for the Worldwide location meetup are in -- it was close! We'll be meeting up for our knit out at Seattle Center/International Fountain if it is sunny, and in the Seattle Center House, if it is rainy.
Snohomish folks - we'll pull together carpools - please spread the word with your knitting friends to meet up for a knit out.
WorldWide Knit in Public day is for celebrating our craft, and showing the world the face of knitters. The Saturday, 18 June 2011, 11am-3pm event gives knitters a chance to share the joy of knitting with the public. This year the Snohomish Knitters Guild is loosely organizing a meet up and we need to know which location you'd like to congregate at:
Seattle Center or Everett Mall.
We need a location that ensures we have a place if it is wet -- and we need to ensure we have the public's attention.
Vote at the bottom of the page and tell us which location you want.
(Vote only if you intend to come to the meet up.) We'll follow up with the location decision very soon!
Seattle Center (or the Center House, if it's rainy)
Pros: Central location, multiple guild members and Yarn Train folks can congregate here along with the Snohomish Knitters Guild knitters and lots to do when you are finished with WWKIP.
Cons: It is a drive for the Snohomish folks; you have to pay for parking
Pros: We'll be covered no matter what the weather, parking is free
Cons: If it is sunny, we'll be inside; Seattle folks aren't likely to make the drive
The poll closed on 20 May 2011 -- it was neck and neck, and the Seattle location won by a narrow margin.
