Trek In

February 6, 2010

We’ve told you already that Darn Good Yarn is going to be at Stitches East, but maybe you’re thinking, “What is Stitches East?”  Or, maybe you know what it is but you’re wondering what there is to do there.  Well, we’re so excited that we’re going, especially because it will be Darn Good Yarn’s first public vending event, but also because it’s going to be so much fun!  And it will make it even more fun to have our fans there so we hope you can make plans to join us!  We hope you can make it to the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford, Connecticut from October 9-12, 2014.

So what is Stitches East all about?  It’s an expo event, meaning the public is invited (this is not a trade show), and it has a few components.  First is the Stitches Market, where there will be several yarn vendors selling, ongoing free demonstrations, daily door prizes, and free knitting and crocheting lessons!  And this is where you can find all of the Darn Good Yarn girls and all of the fabulous Darn Good Yarns…we can’t wait to meet as many of you in person as possible!

Second are the classes.  From seams to cables, weaving to spinning, if you’ve been wanting to learn a certain fiber technique, this is the place to do it!  Take a look here for the full list…there are so many to choose from, but some are already sold out, so hurry and make a selection!

Along with the Stitches Market and classes, there will also be special events including luncheons, fashion shows, dinners, and special presentations and talks!

And if the regular event isn’t enough, stay an extra day for Stitches ETC where there will be more classes and workshops!
