oneHello Fiber Friends!

In just over 10 days knitters and crocheters from all over the country will be converging on STITCHES West 2013 held in Santa Clara, CA (Feb. 22-24, 2013). We hope you’re as excited as we are!

As usual, the STITCHES West 2013 Show Book is now online – and we have a few different download options for you. You can download the 84 page 33 Mb Show Book in zipped PDF format (complete with bookmarks & hyper-links) or you can view the Show Book as separate JPEG files on our Knitting Universe Facebook page, Knitting Universe Google+ page, or as a set on Flickr. Note If you are on an i-device of some kind please use this PDF download link so that you can open the Show Book in Apple's iBooks.

Of course, we’ll have plenty of free printed Show Books at the Market entrance in 10 days...but why wait!?

Within the pages of the Show Book, you’ll find not only a guide to vendors with the most amazing assortment of yarn, needles, buttons and notions (including a three page section just for crocheters starting on page 24); but also all the ‘happenings’ – featuring some of the most inspiring people in the Knitting Universe — including appearances & demonstrations by some of the greatest fiber artists in the industry—you can see those schedules right in the Show Book on pages 29 – 33.ticket

Speaking of the Market, if you’re looking to just buy tickets, you can purchase your tickets online. You’ll 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 left 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 Laura Bryant and Luncheon, the Fashion Show, and the Student Banquet

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