Welcome


The Sand and Sea Knitting Guild is a non-profit organization which provides education to its members and the general public to advance the quality, workmanship and creativity of knitting.

The Guild holds monthly meetings with educational programs which are open to the public. We sponsor knitting workshops, create knitted items for donation to philanthropic projects and enrich our enjoyment of knitting.

Visitors are welcome to attend the monthly Guild meeting which is held on the second Saturday of each month from 11:00 am until 1:30 pm at St Andrew's Lutheran Church, 11555 National Bl., Los Angeles, CA 90064. Except when we have a workshop or special activity. Please check the Calendar. A "Skill & Technique Session" comes before the general meeting from 10:15 to 11:00 a.m.
