Programs that provide organized opportunities for individuals to pursue their interest in knitting, often through the medium of a club or society which is under the leadership of people who are knowledgeable in the subject. Activities may include lectures by people with knitting expertise; demonstrations of knitting techniques; and regular meetings at which members share tips, patterns and information about current projects, work on individual or joint projects (some of which may be charitable) and enjoy the company of other enthusiasts. Some knitting clubs may also arrange for discounts on materials and tools, sponsor exhibits or sales of clothing or art pieces created by members, publish a newsletter or provide a library of resources about the craft. Included are Internet-based virtual clubs, WebRings devoted to the subject and clubs where members meet face-to-face.
