Festival Update

March 14, 15, 16, 2014

Goodies galore!

Many of the donations have begun to arrive from our sponsors. The gifts are overwhelming, and our sponsors are very gracious. We’ll have magazines and pattern books from XRX Books, Soho Publishing, The Knitting Guild Association (TKGA), Interweave, Fiber Art Now, Universal Yarn and more.

Louet North America has sent fiber for use on the FeltLOOM, and sent one kit each for our luncheons and dinner for door prizes.

We have yarn from Berroco, Claudia Hand Painted Yarns, Karabella Yarns, Lion Brand Yarns, skacel collection, Tahki Stacy Charles and The YarnSisters; kits from Kraemer Yarns; buttons and thimbles from JHB; books from Martingale; plus accessories and more. We are pleased that everyone who attends will receive a gift from one of our sponsors, whether you are the first person to arrive at the door or the last.

In fact, the goody bags are shaping up to be so fantastic for the luncheons and dinner that we have decided this week’s giveaway will be for THREE lucky winners:
We are giving three people a $50 discount off one of the following Special Events:

  • Friday’s Kick Off VK Fashion Show and Luncheon with Nicky Epstein
  • Saturday Luncheon with Debbie Macomber
  • Friday Evening Dinner with Debbie Macomber

Not only will the three lucky winners have a chance to meet and mingle with these special ladies, they will also receive a special goody bag from our sponsors.

HOW TO ENTER THE SWEEPSTAKES: Simply send an email (one entry per person, please) to by Feb. 23, 2014, with the subject line of

  • “$50 Discount for Fashion Show Luncheon” OR
  • “$50 Discount for Debbie Luncheon” OR
  • “$50 Discount for Debbie Dinner”

Please include your name and a phone number where you can be reached. The three winners will be drawn randomly from the entries and notified on Feb 24.

With Warm Regards,

We had so many requests for another finishing class that Linda Voss Plummer has graciously agreed to teach an additional class on Friday night, 6-9 p.m. Sign up for it here. Also, please note that many of our classes have sold out, so be sure to check our website first if you’re just now signing up for classes. Thanks!
