Update: Dayton Knitting Guild has been selected as the feature show of the Yellow Springs Arts Council this July. Items by our members will be on exhibition for the public to view. If you would like to submit an article for possible inclusion in the display, you can read about how to do that here! This is our opportunity to show that fine knitting is art!
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, 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.
