Hello Fiber Enthusiasts!

In a little less than eight weeks we’ll all be heading to STITCHES Midwest 2012 at the Renaissance Schaumburg Hotel and Convention Center in Schaumburg, IL (August 9-12). For those of you who haven’t experienced a STITCHES Knitting & Crochet Expo yet, be ready for mountains of beautiful yarns, the newest books from your favorite designers, daily demonstrations that show you the tricks behind the techniques, and daily prizes, prizes, prizes!

Mkt SessionsAnd for those of you who’ve been waiting so patiently for news about Market Sessions, we have good news. Registration for STITCHES Midwest 2012 Market Sessions opens next week (Tuesday, June 26, 2012 at 9:00 am central time). We’ve put the STITCHES Midwest 2012 Market Sessions online (in preview mode until next week) so you can look them over. We’ve also put the brochure online for your convenience. You can download the 14 page 5 Mb Market Session brochure in zipped PDF format (complete with bookmarks & hyper-links) or you can view the brochure as separate JPEG files on our new Knitting Universe Facebook page, Knitting Universe Google+ page, or as a set on Flickr.

Online TicketsWe also wanted to remind you about online tickets… When you purchase your tickets online you save a few dollars and lots of time!  With a quick scan of your printed ticket at the door, you can zoom past the crowds and start shopping right away! Just click on the ticket to the right to use our easy, online ticket service.

If you purchase a Market Session class, you do not need to purchase an online ticket. Simply stop at the Registration desk (to the right of the market entrance) and pick up your badge. Your Badge is your ticket to the Market ALL weekend long.

If you crave more than the Market Floor, take a look at our full offering of Expo Classes, the Opening Day Spotlight and Luncheon, the Fashion Show, and the Student Banquet

That’s all for now. We can’t wait to see you at STITCHES!
Team STS
