Knit, Crochet, Fiber:

StevenBe has added a bonus to his Sunday morning classMix Your Six: A Game of Modifications. He will be bringing Mama Christa with him and will share some of the stories from his new book, StevenBe – LEGENDARY. The mother and son duo will share a little bit of learning, a little bit of stitching and a lot of fun. See the information on the class description, Don’t delay, seats are limited.


Don’t miss a chance to take a class with the industry’s next rising star: Cathy Briscoe. Her classes are unique and combine some beading techniques along with lace, short rows and 17 variations on working and pairing 4 basic increase methods. We are pleased to offer each student who takes the Galaxy II Capelet with Beads class a skein of Lion Brand 24/7 Mercerized Cotton in the loveliest springtime colors.

Quilting, Sewing and Fabric:


We are pleased to be participating in the 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge in the Creative Open Studio. Here are the pattern and instructions we are providing on site for the Pillowcases. Check it out in advance to get familiar with it. There is also a tutorial to watch.


If you are not inclined to sew a pillowcase just sit down and try out a machine. We’ll have lots of fabric available to play with.


Don’t forget, we are collecting your fabrics, notions, yarns and threads for the The Salvation Army Greater Pittsburgh Women’s Auxiliary Fabric Fair.

Sponsor Highlight:


Lion Brand Yarn has been a long time sponsor of the festival and has supported notable yarn bombings from lockers rooms, bicycles, cars, NYC billboards, the 7 Wonders of the Yarn World and our very own Knit the Bridge!
