About

Canadian Guild of Knitters

The colours of Canadian Guild of Knitters are blue and yellow or gold: blue representing the sea and skies that embrace Canada and golden yellow representing the sun, growth, optimism and the wealthy knitting tradition of Canada.

The closed circular needle of our logo represents Canada's circle of knitters. The three hearts represent not only a love of knitting, but three generations of knitters: past, present, and future. Our tag line "for the Love of Knit" was derived from our three hearts and the often-used phrase "for the love of it."

Cynthia MacDougall is the administrator for Canadian Guild of Knitters. She is a 40-year plus knitter whose grandmother taught her to knit. She has written articles for Canadian fibre and craft magazines since the mid 1990s and contributed a design to the book Kids' Knitted Sweaters and More. Cynthia is now also the knitting editor for A Needle Pulling Thread magazine in addition to her work for Canadian Guild of Knitters.

In 2005 she launched level 1 of the Knitting Accreditation Program, followed by Level 2 in 2013.

Cynthia has developed several workshops to encourage creativity and the love of knit. For more information, contact Cynthia.
