Hello Fiber Enthusiasts!
STITCHES South 2013 in Atlanta, GA is only 13 days away (April 11-14, 2013). We’re really excited about this show. And we can’t wait to see all our knit & crochet friends.
As usual, the STITCHES South 2013 Show Book is now online, – and we have a few different download options for you. You can download the 60 page 57 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’re on an i-device of some kind please use this PDF download link so that you can open the Show Book up in Apple’s iBooks.
And, of course, we’ll have plenty of free printed STITCHES South 2013 Show Books at the Market entrance in two weeks.
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 40); but also all the ‘happenings’ – featuring some of the most inspiring people in the Knitting Universe—including book signings (page 24) appearances & demonstrations (page 26), by some of the greatest fiber artists in the industry. And Prizes! Did we mention there will be prizes (page 28)? But, of course, you’re going to have to get yourself to the market to take advantage of all that these wonderful vendors (pages 32-35) have to offer!
If you want to get a double-dose of what the vendors are offering in the market, you won’t want to miss the Vendor Preview thread in the STITCHES South group on Ravelry.
That’s all for now. We can’t wait to see you at STITCHES!
We 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 purchased any market sessions, classes, or events you do not need to purchase an online ticket. Simply stop at the Registration Desk (outside the Market entrance) and pick up your badge. Your badge is your ticket to the Market ALL weekend long. There are still some open spots in our classes and events if you want to sign up. It's not too late to take advantage of everything that STITCHES South has to offer—from our wonderful teachers to our great events.
P.S. If you're in the area on Friday night (after the Fashion Show & Dinner) make sure you don't miss the Free Pajama Party event over in the hotel. Our hostess, Marly Bird, always does a great job with that event. And yes… there will be prizes there as well!
We wish to thank STITCHES South 2013 Sponsors for their support!
