This year, we were graced with the presence of the longest crochet chain in the world, weighing in at 200lbs!  Thanks, Abby Niederhauser, for creating and sharing such a feat!

We are so grateful that so many community members came out to join us.  This event is always a great way to meet your neighbors, share what you know, learn from others, and spread joy!  And of course you could win great raffle prizes!

Finally, a big thanks to BookEnds Bookstore for hosting this event.  We couldn’t have done it without you.

Worldwide Knit in Public Day 2017

Our 3rd annual celebration of Worldwide Knit in Public Day was a great success.  The event was held at BookEnds Bookstore in Meiners Oaks.  About 100 women joined us to knit throughout the day including our regulars who travel all the way from Santa Barbara and Camarillo every year.

World Wide Knit in Public Day 2015

The Group

We had the most wonderful Day last Saturday June 13th for World Wide Knit in Public Day at BookEnds Bookstore in Meiners Oaks, Ojai California. Proud to be one of the almost 900 groups in 56 different countries participating this year. This is our first year in Ojai, but the tenth for WWKIPDay. We had 60 women come together, from 8 years old to 88 years old……sharing, laughing, helping each other, teaching each other……fully embodying  the official slogan of

“Better Living Through Stitching Together”

Here we are teaching each other……
