Festival Update

March 14, 15, 16, 2014

See you this weekend…

We are packing up and heading to the hotel tomorrow to begin set-up. All advanced and online registration is closed. You may pay for admission or for any remaining classes and Special Events onsite at our registration table.

If you have purchased a Nicky Epstein “Kick off the Weekend” Luncheon and Fashion show package, please arrive at 11:30 a.m. on Friday at the registration table to pick up your tickets.
Otherwise, registration officially opens at 12:30 p.m. The Market opens at 1 p.m. The Festival hours are:

  • Friday 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. (registration opens at 12:30 p.m., unless registered for fashion show/luncheon)
  • Saturday 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. (registration opens at 8:30 a.m.)
  • Sunday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (registration opens at 8:30 a.m.)

You will receive a classroom assignment sheet along with your event program when you arrive. Check it to see where your class/es are; however, all class locations and times are also listed online.

Please be sure to check New York Times #1 Best Selling Author Debbie Macomber’s book signing schedule. This is her public appearance schedule. If you did not purchase a ticket to her Private Luncheon or Private Dinner, this will be your opportunity to meet Debbie in person and get her autograph.

Don’t forget to wear one of your Top 10 Ravelry picks to the PJ Party on Friday night. We will be picking winners of all 10 designs, and will have gifts for the winners.

On a final note, BOTH USA Olympic Teams Sweaters will be on display during the Festival! The Opening Ceremony Sweater, hat, gloves and scarf will be at Kathy’s Kreations‘ booth, and the Closing Ceremony Sweater will be at Noni Designs‘ booth. We are honored to have them both in one location! Bring your cameras, as this may be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

We can’t wait to see you all at our very special 10-year anniversary celebration. I hope you have as much fun as I probably will.

With Warm Regards,


Festival parking made easy

The Four Points by Sheraton Pittsburgh North has graciously made arrangements should its parking lots become full, offering both offsite parking and regular shuttles as overflow options.

The hotel will run shuttles every half hour after its lots fill up. The offsite overflow parking is located at the U.S. Post Office (300 Brush Creek Rd., Warrendale 15905).

Parking will be available during the Festival hours, and shuttles will run through the evening events as well. The overflow parking lot is the first lot on the left. There will be signage at the lot for parking and pick-ups. Please note: The USPS is not responsible for damage or thefts.
