Meet & Knit

Join us at a knitting meet-up!

Helsinki Urban Yarn Fest is happening for the first time at Kaartinkaupunki on 10th of December. The best thing about such yarn events is meeting other knitters and we’re hosting a meet-up just for that reason!

During the library’s opening hours, at 12-18pm, join us for a chill meet-up at the Kirjatorni (”book tower”) of Rikhardinkatu Library. The meet-up is all about gentle conversation (let’s keep in mind other library goers!), showing off our yarn treasures and, of course, knitting! Other yarn crafts are also very welcome.

You can come and go to/from the meet-up as it fits your schedule during the library’s opening hours. The official languages of the meet-up are English and Finnish. Be mindful and respectful of other peoples space and being. No one will be left outside of the meet-up and no discrimination will be tolerated.

If you have any questions about the knitting meet-up, please don’t hesitate to email the meet-up’s main organizer, Ella (
