Hello Fiber Enthusiasts!

In just a little more than five weeks, we’ll all be heading out to STITCHES West 2012 at the Santa Clara Convention Center & Hyatt Regency Santa Clara in Santa Clara, CA (February 23-26). For those of you who haven’t experienced a STITCHES 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!

MS brochureAnd for those of you who’ve been waiting so patiently for news about Market Sessions, we have good news. Registration for STITCHES West 2012 Market Sessions opens next week (Wednesday, January 18, 2012 at 9:00 am central time). We’ve put the STITCHES West 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 Market Session brochure online as separate JPEG files either on our Facebook photo album 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 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!





P.S. Just a quick reminder… Early bird pricing for STITCHES South 2012 ends on Friday, January 20, 2012. There are still some classes and events that are not sold out. We'd love to see you there.

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