Festival Update



The Festival was a huge success and we owe it all to you, thank you.

Thank you to all of our sponsors, volunteers, teachers, vendors and staff who worked so hard to make this show happen. A full thank-you list can be seen on the website.

For those of you who were unable to attend or came late on Sunday when we ran out of programs, we have added the program as a PDF on the website that you can download here.

Many photos have been posted on our Facebook page. If you took any photos, we’d love to see them, too.

The winners of the One-Year Subscription to Knitter’s Magazine daily drawings were: 

  • Friday: Jodi Neff
  • Saturday: Tishie Woodwell
  • Sunday: Lori Chandler 

We are always grateful for any suggestions or recommendations that might help us to improve each Festival. Each year, there are little items that arise, which we try to address. This year, we had some questions about parking. The hotel has been gracious and provided a free shuttle all three days to transport those who parked in an adjacent lot or were parked farther away.

The hotel DOES PERMIT parking along the yellow lines of its parking lot during the weekend of the show! We encouraged folks to drive together and carpool to help resolve this issue, but other than that, we are at the mercy of the venue. Other than going to another location, this is the best that we can do. Other locations would present other issues, though: parking would not be free; admission, classes and vendor spaces would become more expensive, etc.

We work very hard to keep costs low to accommodate everyone, including the small local farmers and store owners, as well as the folks who travel from far away. Let’s keep our Festival in an intimate hotel atmosphere, a more friendly environment than a convention center, which allows us to make closer connections and let our hair down.

I’m putting my daughter Sarah on a plane to Spain this week, then traveling to Florida with my sister Ann. I’ll send news again next month, including details about our fall Knittreat. I hope you spend the coming weeks playing with all your new Festival finds!

With Warm Regards,

Barbara Grossman
