Who We Are

Who We Are

The Big Apple Knitters Guild (BAKG) is a diverse community of knitters. Based in Manhattan, our members hail from all across the metropolitan and tristate areas and beyond.  We come from many different walks of life and backgrounds. We range in age from 10 to 90+, and every decade in between! Some of us are experienced knitters, with published patterns to our credit, while others are intermediate knitters or just getting started.

What binds us is our common love of knitting and desire to learn and become more proficient at our craft.  We enjoy meeting other knitters and sharing our expertise.  If you’ve ever entertained the idea of learning to knit, want to explore the world of knitting, or would simply like to experience the camaraderie of other knitters, consider joining us—we would be delighted to welcome you!
