Welcome to The Dayton Knitting Guild Web Site
The 2020 Woolgathering at Young’s Dairy is cancelled
The 2020 Wool Gathering at Young’s Dairy is cancelled due to health concerns revolving around the Coronavirus Pandemic. The Young family’s first priority is the safety and welfare of our Vendors and Guests. As the coronavirus numbers have increased in Ohio the past few weeks, it became more and more certain we couldn’t operate this large event safely and still have a great show.
This was not an easy decision, but one we made with the best intentions for everyone involved. We will begin focusing on making the 25th Anniversary on September 18th and 19th of 2021, a true celebration of all things wool and fiber!
The Dayton Knitting Guild, established in 1986, promotes interest and skill in the art of knitting, encourages high standards of quality and workmanship, and encourages the use of those skills for the benefit of others. Membership is open to all skill levels and geographic locations.
The Dayton Knitting Guild membership is open to all. In addition to having first choice for special events and access to our video lending library, members receive a quarterly newsletter, Call of the Wool.

A note about our guild icon:
In 2003, Dayton, Ohio celebrated the 100th anniversary of the Wright brothers first flight. The sculpture at RiverScape in the photo below from the Dayton-Montgomery County Convention and Visitor’s Bureau depicts the Wright Flyer. We used the Wright Flyer as our guild icon because it is identifiably Dayton.
