Eight. Days. Away.

YarnCon is only eight days away. SO SOON. Are you ready? It’s go time, people.

As you probably know, we give out goodie bags to the first 50 shoppers to waltz through the door each day, and there’s always a long line of eager folks ready to snag one. But what you might not know is that this year’s bags will include YARN. Not just any yarn, but custom YarnCon-inspired colorways created by 10 veteran YarnCon vendors just for this year’s show! For a tantalizing preview of these luscious lovelies, head over to our Facebook page — we’re highlighting one a day through April 17.

Also new this year:  FOOD TRUCKS. We’re lining up a great fleet of food trucks for your dining pleasure, and it’s going to be delicious. As always, we’ll have coffee for sale inside; this year’s vendor is one of our southside neighbors, Greenline Coffee. We’re excited to welcome them to YarnCon!

Want to wear your YarnCon pride year-round? By popular demand, we’ve opened a YarnCon shop with t-shirts and other fun things. Our pre-sale has ended, but you can still order online and have it shipped. Or buy one at the show and save shipping costs!

Don’t want to wait in line for a goodie bag? Need one of those t-shirts but can’t shell out for one? Become a YarnCon volunteer and we’ll reward you with one of each. Sign up now for a three-hour shift, and along with the thanks of a grateful YarnCon team, you’ll come away with swag.

See you at the show!
