Festival Update


See you at the Festival this weekend

I am all packed up and am on my way to the hotel to set up along with all of the vendors today. I will not be available to answer the phone, but if you need any urgent questions answered, you can send a note to

Advanced registration is officially closed. You can now pay at the door when you arrive. There are some spaces remaining in some of the classes. We’ll have a complete list available for you at the registration tables.

Festival hours, schedule, vendors, teachers, classes and all activities are all posted online. Please refer to if you have any general questions. Thank you. We officially open the doors at 1 p.m. on Friday, and the market opens at 1:30 p.m. See you there!

With Warm Regards,

Vendors hit the highlights in Ravelry thread

Thanks to Kathy Zimmerman, Kathy’s Kreations, there’s a thread going on our Ravelry group page where vendors are discussing what they are going to be bringing to the Festival. If you’re a Ravelry member, we invite you to check out (and even join) the discussion here.  

Thank you, Karabella Yarns

Festival totes and tees for sale

The $5 tote bags are green for St. Patty’s Day. We also have T-shirts available with such slogans as “It’s too hot to wear my sweater,” “I heart to knit” and “I heart to crochet.” Check out all the merchandise at the registration tables.

Stacey duckHappy National Crochet Month

How nice of the Crochet Guild of America to coincide National Crochet Month with our Festival (OK, OK, so they’ve been doing it in March for a little longer than we have been).

We’ll be celebrating in part with the wonderful Stacey Trock’s adorable duck class on Sunday afternoon. Wouldn’t this crocheted cutie be the perfect addition to your Easter basket? There are still some spots available — along with just a few other classes that may still have space when you arrive for the Festival. Just make an inquiry at the registration tables!
