Commitment to Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, Accessibility, and Excellence

The Center for Knit and Crochet  (“CKC”) serves our craft community and the public by taking action to preserve, share, and study the past, present, and future of knitting and crochet. 

The love of creating knows no boundaries. If you share our passion for these arts, we invite you to become an active CKC member, volunteer, and leader, and to use your unique talents, interests, and perspectives to help us ensure that knitting, crochet, and our shared community of makers, remain vibrant, accessible, and welcoming to future generations.

As an emerging museum for knitting and crochet, free access to information for all, and not just a privileged few, has always been the cornerstone of CKC’s mission to preserve and share our maker communities’ knit and crochet histories online – past, present, and future. CKC’s online resources and shared digital collections are always free and open to anyone, 24/7 – whether for pleasure, inspiration, preservation, or self-paced research – because free, public access empowers new ideas, new perspectives, and new scholarship.
