The next KITH will be April 1 - 3, 2016

Mark your calendars now!


Knitting in the Heartland (KITH) is a biennial weekend conference that celebrates knitting and the Kansas City metro area's knitting community.  The event includes a variety of exciting classes featuring local and internationally recognized knitting instructors.  A free vendor market

brings together fiber artists and yarn shops from around the midwest. 

The Sunflower Knitters' Guild has sponsored this event for over 15 years.

Many thanks to our 2014 featured instructor & keynote speaker:

Fiona Ellis

Fiona Ellis has been designing commercially since graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Fashion Knitwear Design from DeMontfort University, England in 1993. She began knitting at an early age after being taught by her grandmother. She loved to experiment, consequently her dolls were the best dressed in the neighbourhood, even if some of them were doomed to be fashion victims or ridiculed for their daring outfits. Her original designs have been sold to fashion houses in New York, London & Paris for mass-market production. In addition to personal appearances and workshop instruction at international conferences and guilds, Fiona is also a Craftsy on-line instructor.  Widely published in premier knitting magazines, her patterns are also carried by many leading yarn companies. She is author of Inspired Cable Knits, Inspired Fair Isle Knits and Knitspiration Journal (all published by Potter Craft).
