Hello Fiber Enthusiasts!

In a little less than four weeks we’ll all be heading to STITCHES East 2012 held at the Marriott Hartford Downtown & the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford, CT (October 11-14, 2012). 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!

pdfAnd for those of you who’ve been waiting so patiently for news about Market Sessions, we have good news. Registration for STITCHES East 2012 Market Sessions is open. You can look at the STITCHES East 2012 Market Sessions online. We’ve also put the brochure online for your convenience. You can download the 17 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.

ticketWe 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 at 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 left 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 with Deborah Newton and Luncheon, the Fashion Show, and the Student Banquet

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

P.S. We also want to remind you that the Great Halos of Hope Buzz will be coming to an end at this show. At 1:00 pm Saturday, October 13th, 2012 someone is going to get his head shaved on the STITCHES East Market floor as a show of support for those going through cancer treatment. If you haven’t donated yet, there’s still time. It’s fun and it’s for a great cause!



We wish to thank STITCHES East 2012 Sponsors for their support!
