As I'm moving to Tacoma to be close to family, I'm wondering if anyone knows of yarn shops or knitting groups that meet monthly or... around the area.
I drive so getting from one place to another would not be a problem, but I don't like to drive at night any longer.

Nancy we are going to miss you at our monthly get togethers. I for one shall be so sad. I have enjoyed getting to know you and hopefully you can find another group in the Tacoma area that will be as encouraged by your friendship as I have. Take care and keep in touch via KP. Happy knitting.

I'm going to miss all of you and plan, if possible to show up once in a while, I can't promise every month, but I will give it a good try. It has been great getting to know all of you and remember there will always be a place to stay in Tacoma, and I will share my address and phone number soon.

I changed when I started looking for a place to move in the area I'm moving, as soon as I'm settled I'm going to put back my location.

There is a yarn store in downtown Tacoma called Fibers, Etc and then there are a few others in the surrounding area. Lakewood has one.....Port Orchard has a really nice one and I think there may be one in Puyallup. I'm not actally in the Tacoma area so I can't help you with the knitting groups. I'm pretty sure the Good Yarn in Port Orchard has knitting sessions...but not at all sure of the times. Hopes this helps and welcome to the area.

Hi Nanxy,
I have a daughter who lives in Steilacoom, Wa right next to Tacoma. There are several yarn stores out there! My favorite is Yorkshire Yarns in Lakewood. The owner is a wonderful lady. She can hook you up with groups out that way! Enjoy being close to your family!

The Good Yarn Shop in Port Orchard, about 30 - 45 min
north on the Kitsap Peninsula, is terrific. I go there every time I visit my daughter in PO. There is a terrific lunch restaurant just across the parking lot. Well worth the trip.

Yorkshire Yarns in Lakewood is the LYS I use, they have classes and are very helpful. They just recently had the lady with the crazy purple hair teaching a class (sorry, 5am and my brain refuses to call up her name). They have a Yarn Crawl coming up mid May.

Welcome to Tacoma, the most wired city in the nation.

edit: Lucy Neatby... had to look at their site, brain remained on strike.

check out the local JoAnn stores and also the senior centers. Sometimes the library's have things going to. See if there are Hobby Lobby or Michael's they have classes and I'm sure could tell you about groups in the area

I'm not sure where the next meeting is going to be as I'm moving the day before, but it is always on the second Sunday of the month from 1 to 4:30, very nice ladies and great group to belong. I will make sure you get in touch with them.

Thank you, I plan to visit there as I'm a fan of Debbi Macomber books and that is her shop, I understand.
