TKGA Memorial scholarship

The Knitting Guild Association is proud to provide a commemorative opportunity for friends and family to honor fellow knitters or memorialize a knitter or knitting related person. Anyone who knits or is a part of the knitting community or industry can contribute to the fund which benefits knitters by awarding scholarships for TKGA education.

The first gifts to the fund were made in 2007 by knitting designer Marlyn W. Ibele in remembrance of TKGA friends Virginia Dillon and Marjorie Hughes. Many names have been added since to the TKGA Memorial Fund Honor Roll and Remembrance Page by friends, family, local guild members and others (see below).

HELP Provide education to knitters

The TKGA Memorial Scholarship Fund is one way you can honor a knitting friend or remember a beloved knitter AND provide for others who also love the art and fun of the craft.

Help knitters by providing a Correspondence Course, Masters Program level, or pay for a knitting class at Conference.


Gifts specified for "The Knitting Guild Association Memorial Fund” must be made payable to  the "TKGA Memorial Fund". Donors should specify that their gifts are for "The Knitting Guild Association Memorial Fund” and should identify the name of the knitter to be honored or memorialized.

If you would like to donate, please print a TKGA Memorial Fund Donor Form to send with your check.

If the person you are honoring is still living, tell them they have been added to the TKGA Honor Roll using the TKGA Honor Roll Notice Form.
