In the Chicago area? Well then, I hope to see you at Vogue Knitting Live the weekend of October 26-28. The classes available are phenomenal, offering something for all levels and taught by industry super stars like: Debbie Bliss, Nicky Epstein, Debbie Stoller, Cookie A., Susan B. Anderson and more!
Inside the marketplace.
Prefer shopping to learning? Well then, check out the best local (and some, not-so-local) yarn shops, spinners and artisans who will have booths at the marketplace — all of whom will help you feed your yarn fix! Oh, and please stop by the Kollabora booth at noon on Saturday and 1pm on Sunday where I’ll be signing copies of my latest book, Step It Up Knits.
In fact, here’s a special coupon to get you into the marketplace for $5 off!
Teaching a knitter to crochet. She’d been trying to learn for years, but finally got it that day!
Are you a knitter who’s always wanted to crochet or vice versa? Then the Beginner Lounge, hosted by me and Bernat, is for you! Needles, hooks and Sheep(ish) yarn will be provided throughout the weekend. Drop in anytime!
Happy Cowliday from Holiday Knit Simple
Psst! Did you make the Happy Cowliday neck warmer from the Holiday issue of Knit Simple’s Stitch.Rock.Knit-along? The first 24 people to bring theirs to show Vickie at the Beginner Lounge at Vogue Knitting Live, will get a free ball of Bernat Alpaca!
