Group crafting can be a lot of fun because you get to chat and form new friendships, find new inspirations, or even become someone else’s source of inspiration.  It’s also beneficial to knit or crochet in groups if you find that you need some help with a project or with understanding certain techniques. To help make it easier for you to find knit and crochet groups/clubs in your area, Lion Brand Yarn created a database to search possible options near your area.

If you scroll to the bottom of the Lion Brand Yarn homepage, you’ll find the Directory of Knitting and Crochet Clubs.

Lion Brand Yarn Website Screen

When you click on the Directory of Knitting and Crochet Clubs, you’ll be prompted to enter location information so the most relevant groups to your area will be displayed.  You can simply enter your postal code to receive search results.

Also, if you’re a member of a group or know of one that’s not in our database, please feel free to register your group so that others who are interested may find you online!  You’ll find the “Register a Group” link right under Find a Group.

So tell us, Do you regularly knit or crochet with a group or a club? Share your experience in the comments.

      Hi Ila, I’ve edited your comment (which is public on our site) to remove your personal information to protect your privacy. 

      Here’s a direct link to the directory so that you can use it:

      You may also want to try Ravelry.com, a free online yarn community with many groups based on locales and interest.

    I can’ seem to log in to find a crochet group in Palm Springs, Calif.  Please helppp!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Hi Sauliesgirl, if you don’t get any results for your city, we may not have a group listed in that area yet. If that’s the case, we recommend that you check out the free yarn community Ravelry.com, which also has many groups (some of which are by city/location). You may also be interested in starting your own group, in which case I’d recommend checking out our online talk-radio show, YarnCraft, which had an episode with tips on this subject:

      If you mean that you’re having trouble logging into LionBrand.com, go to the login page, and click on the link where it says “Forgot your password? click here”. Hope that helps!
