Festival Update

March 27, 28, 29, 2015


I have so much to be thankful for this Holiday season: good health, family, good friends and laughter. And with a new granddaughter, what better gift could I ask for? I would like to send a special holiday greeting out to each of you and hope that your Holidays are peaceful and filled with Joy.

I have 2 books to give away this issue, both crochet related. Although one is a “Christmas” Crochet book, and we won’t get it out to you until after the New Year, it can be our belated gift just for you. We have much crochet at the Festival in March, with The Crochet Dude® Drew Emborsky and Robyn Chachula and their Crochet Superbooth as well as many crochet classes with other teachers and a crochet category in each category of the Design Contest… All of our crochet fans will have no time to rest.

We are thrilled to have such a fantastic line up of new exhibitors with many of our returning favorites. If you are wondering why some of our “old time” vendors are not returning, many are not doing the “show circuit” any longer and some had conflicts with the new dates, March 27, 28, 29th 2015. Check out all of our exhibitors many of whom are offering classes and will have many new products.

On a last note, when sending in your registration electronically, if you are sending it in for 2 people, please put the name of the other person in the Instructions from Buyer section. We would like to list all names on the class rosters.

With Warm Regards,



Christmas Crochet for Hearth, Home & Tree by Edie Eckman
Edie Eckman is a household name, her work has been seen in every publication that is crochet related.  Maybe she will consider joining us next year. This book is aptly named, with patterns for stockings, ornaments, garlands and more. With projects to get started on for next year and those beautiful stars that I have hanging on my tree and in my window year round. I have never made them, but always purchased them at local craft fairs.

To enter this sweepstakes, please send an email (one entry per person please) topghknitandcrochet@gmail.com with the subject line of “Christmas Crochet” by December 31st, 2014. Winner will be announced in our next newsletter.

cozy toes for baby, sweet shoes to crochet and felt by Chantel Garceau and Mary J. King
At last, a felting book for Crochet! To my knowledge, this may be a 1st, with patterns for 7 baby booties, slippers and shoes that can be worn all year long. Whimsical, cute patterns that all kids will enjoy: ladybugs, frogs, sock monkey, pandas, an owl and even a watermelon! The slippers are shown with either a crocheted bottom or an alternative leather bottom stitched on.  A perfect easy to follow book with step by step instructions. (I think I could even make these) And why not a hat to match?

To enter this sweepstakes please send an email to pghknitandcrochet@gmail.com (one entry per person please) with the subject line “cozy toes” by December 31, 2014. Winner will be announced in our next newsletter.
