This is a group for fiber artists and needlecrafters in the Baton Rouge area. Our main goal is to share our knowledge of knitting, crochet, spinning, and weaving and to help preserve these once essential arts. Whether you already knit, crochet, spin or weave or you are interested in learning, please join us.

We meet the first Wednesday of the month at the Bluebonnet Library, 6:30 p.m., the second Wednesday of the month at the Bluebonnet Library, 10 a.m, and one Saturday a month at 10 a.m. (our Saturday morning location changes frequently so feel free to email for details!).

The HALF-FAST KNITTERS of New Orleans is a knitting fellowship for people at all levels of knitting skills. Our purpose is to provide education and communication toward improving the workmanship and creativity of knitters. All levels of knitters or welcome. Members range from those just beginning to knit, to those well advanced. We all profit from each other. Regular meetings are held the second Monday of each month (except December) from 6 to 8 p.m. at Old Metairie Library, 4350 Metairie Road, Metairie, LA. These meetings include educational programs, show-and share, and general fellowship. A monthly knit-in is an additional or alternative meeting opportunity for our members. On the fourth Saturday of the month 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., members can drop-in for an informal get-together at a hosting member's home. Membership is open to any person who is interested in knitting. You are welcome to visit first, with no obligation. The membership fee is $18 per year, prorated for new members. Besides the regular monthly membership meetings and knit-ins, member benefits include monthly newsletter, workshops with national and local instructors, special interest groups (e.g. lace knitting, spinning), service projects, annual weekend retreat, and annual Christmas Party. 1996 marked our 10th anniversary and we are still going strong!
