Pre-existing knitting clubs in Arkansas

Existing Knitting groups in Arkansas:

Holiday Island, AR (near the missouri border) has several knitting groups.

In Maumelle, AR there is a knitting club with this description: We meet the second Tuesday and the fourth Thursday of every month, from 6:30-7PM until around 8:30PM, at the Maumelle Public Library meeting room. I'd suggest if you decide to go to the meeting, go a head and call the Maumelle Public Library in advance to confirm dates/times.

The Yarn Dolls knitting club is definitely active in Little Rock, but the site doesn't say the dates or times or place of the meetings. I have not found the user's contact information, so I'd say your best bet to get in on this group is to check the blog out for the announcement of the next time/place for the meetings.

Stitch N Bitch Fort Smith at Sweet Bay Coffee club - Thursday night 5:30PM - around 8PM. We're usually in the study room through the french doors near the counter.

Russellville Knit/Crochet Club - There is a new Knit/Crochet club in Russellville that meets the second and fourth Thursday of each month from 2-4pm at the original C.J.'s Burgers on Knoxville near the Fairgrounds. There are NO fees, just bring your own project and join in the fun! We do encourage knitting or crocheting for charity, so if you want to bring in your projects, please do! The club is called "Threads Of Hope".

And in Conway, Arkansas - I'm putting together a good schedule for a knitting night either in my home or in a public place (such as the Library, or Something Brewing, or Starbucks, for a routine knitting club).

If you know of any additional knitting/chrochet groups in Arkansas, post a comment here and I'll add it to the list : ).

There's a pretty good list of Arkansas knitting groups in the Arkansas Knit Chicks community on Ravelry. I think it lists when they all meet.

My name is Lynda O'Rourke. I am a member of Soldiers Angels. We are a nonprofit all volunteer military support group. www.soldiersangels.org

I am writing to ask if you know or any knitting/crochet or quilting groups that are willing to donate twin size blankets for our veterans. Our goal right now is to supply the Lyons VA with blankets for their Vets, also to provide some blankets for our soldiers at Walter Reed. We are trying to give them something individualized that feels a little "homey" during the holidays. What a better way than to provide some warmth and comfort.
If you can help we would truly appreciate it, or if you know of any organizations that would be willing to help, Please let me know. My e-mail is Catkeepr@aol.com. Please put Soldiers Angels in the subject line.

Thank You again.

Learning to Knit/Crochet

I am responding to the part about starting a knitting night in Conway. My name is Stacey and I am 23 years old and live in Conway and have been desiring to learn to knit and/or crochet for the past year now. I have tried all the teach yourself methods but have not been sucessful. I was wondering if your club teaches people to knit or if you know someone that might be willing to teach me? I appreciate any help you may be able to give! Thanks so much!

knitting club - Conway
I am wondering if you ever did start a Conway group? And I'd ask the same question as another lady...is there somebody willing to teach some basics? I have crocheted dish towels before, but never knitted anything and I would LOVE to learn! Let me know...my email address is gerickehouse@yahoo.com and my name is Cammi Gericke. Thanks!
