We are pleased to once again offer something fresh and different for everyone! We are bringing back the Revolving Trunk Show, which allows you to touch each garment, try it on, see and feel the drape of each item. The Revolving Trunk Show will be hosted by the yarn companies that show their support each year. Every hour, we’ll showcase a different yarn company, their yarns, and their garments. Garments will be shown from companies like: TSC Inc. ArtYarns, Louet, Alpaca Yarn Company, Lion Brand  Feza, Kraemer, Made in America Yarns, Berroco, Be Sweet, Skacel Collection and many more. The garments will stay on display through the entire show, but will be highlighted hourly as posted on a schedule you will receive when you arrive. Come in once, or come in as many times as you’d like to see, feel and try on the various garments from our sponsors. Admission for entry ticket is: $10.00, which can be used throughout the show multiple times. Yarn representatives, designers and yarn store owners will make a presentation and be on hand to discuss garments and the yarns. Trunk show pass included with any VIP package purchase.   This event will be featured in the Cranberry Room.
