Amelia Knitting Club

The Amelia Knitting Club meets the first Wednesday of every month from 2 to 4 p.m. at The Mustard Seed Café, located at Nassau Health Foods. The knitting group was created by Merle Sauer, an avid knitter. Sauer has met many like-minded people interested in knitting, and felt there was enough interest to form the group.

Originally from South Africa, Merle and her husband Julian moved to the United States in 1979. Sauer is the owner of “Hair by Merle” located in Fernandina Beach. Merle Sauer studied her craft under the tutelage of Vidal Sassoon in London, and ran her own successful salon in Atlanta before moving to Amelia Island.

Amelia Knitting Club is open to anyone interested in knitting and sewing with friends. There is no commitment and open to anyone who loves the craft.
