Hello Fiber Enthusiasts!

It just a little more than six weeks and we’ll all be heading out to STITCHES West 2013 (held in Santa Clara, CA from Feb. 21-24, 2013) and West ETC 2013 (Feb. 25-26, 2013). 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 techniques, and daily prizes, prizes, prizes!

1And for those of you who’ve been waiting so patiently for news about the Market Sessions, we have good news. Registration for the STITCHES West 2013 Market Session are OPEN NOW! If you’d like to look through the classes, events, and packages via our online registration system (which will allow you to search by teacher, day, and/or subject), we have turned it on. You can also download the 18 page 5 Mb Market Session brochure in zipped PDF format (complete with bookmarks & hyper-links) or you can view the Market Session brochure as separate JPEG files on our Knitting Universe Facebook page, Knitting Universe Google+ page, or as a set on Flickr. Note: If you’re on an i-device of some kind please use this PDF download link so that you can open the Market Sessions brochure, up in Apple’s iBook.

ticketWe also wanted to remind you about online tickets… When you purchase your tickets online you save some money 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!
