About Shall We Knit?
The local yarn shop
is a community. It is human connection over a common passion. Knitting is
wonderful, but knitting in isolation is less of a joy. We need
local yarn shops
to provide a gathering place, a place for inspiration, for
instruction, for connection with others like us. THAT is why the
atmosphere and attitude of a shop matters almost as much as the
inventory. Everyone must feel welcome and comfortable, regardless of
age, size, or skill level.
Shall We Knit?
is located in the city of Waterloo and strives to maintain a sense of community for the knitters of the
Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge, Guelph and Stratford areas.
A bit about us
Karen is member of the Waterloo Knitter's Guild
- Karen was the recipient of the 2009 Sally Melville Award
- "Sally Melville helped start the K-W Knitters’ Guild in
1985 and knew that she had tapped into something powerful
when 140 people showed up for the first meeting. The guild,
which is the largest in Canada, “benefits from her
enthusiasm and energy and in large part it bears her stamp,”
said fellow knitter Debbie New. The guild’s Sally
Melville Award is handed out each year to the knitter who
has most inspired its members. "
