YarnCon knows fiber!

YarnCon is Chicago’s homegrown yarn-centric exhibition — a place to promote, sell, and celebrate the yarny arts. Started in 2007, YarnCon is all about the indie artisan! Our mission is to be the premier market for independent producers of yarn, fiber for spinning and weaving, tools, gadgets, books, patterns, instructions, and gifts related to spinning, knitting, crochet, and weaving.
