Date: June 10, 2017. Time: 8am-12pm

We will meet here:

Homestead Restaurant

4029 Piedmont Ave

94611 Oakland

United States

Metered street parking and metered parking in the back is available.

Description of the KIP:

I’m a VERY new knitter but I saw there was nothing hosted for the East Bay and figured that should be rectified. I always get a warm fuzzy feeling when I see people being crafty in public and I think the world needs more of that. Please join me for a morning of knitting. There will be tables to knit at. The tables are on a first come first get basis and Saturday mornings can be quite busy with cafe customers. We are welcome to sit as long as we’d like.

What to bring:
BRING CASH if you would like something from the cafe counter. They have lovely offerings of soft boiled eggs, bacon, granola with yogurt, strata, fresh baked goods, coffee and tea, etc.

Backup plan:
No back up plan.

Is this KIP going to be exclusive to knitting?
Are there any bathrooms nearby?
Yes, Free

This KIP is hosted by: Gloria
Number of KIP’s hosted before :-): First time

    Thanks for arranging this event! Gloria, will you be at Homestead for the full 4 hours, starting at 8am?

    Message from the host: Hi Astrid,

    I need to cancel the KNITTING IN THE MORNING in Oakland, CA. I found out today that the location has an issue and sadly they will not be open during cafe hours. There is literally no place to knit. A couple blocks away the knitting store is hosting an event so there’s that. My apologies for having to cancel. I’m bummed and the venue was quite apologetic.

    If you could please remove ours from the listing so no one is confused, I’d appreciate it.

    Thank you,

    Gloria Strohm

    Hi Debbie,

    Sadly the event is canceled. Homestead has announced they are closing their cafe hours for the week. Ugh! The yarn store up the street will be hosting their KIP Day starting at 10am.
