Welcome

The mission of The Center for Knit and Crochet, Inc. (“CKC”) is to preserve and promote the art, craft, and scholarship of knitting, crochet, and related arts.  To achieve these goals, CKC is creating an online museum, study center, and social networking environment to serve our community and the general public.  The CKC exists entirely online at www.centerforknitandcrochet.org and its resources and collections are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  Without a physical facility, the CKC stays in touch with members and others through email and social media (FacebookTwitterInstagram, and Ravelry). A nine-member Board of Directors oversees and coordinates CKC’s activities.  Please visit our Membership page to join CKC, get involved, and support our work.
