Volunteer at YarnCon!

Lately, many of you have written us to ask if YarnCon needs volunteers. The answer is a resounding YES!! Every year, we could use extra hands in many areas: helping vendors unload their wares and schlep them to their booths, womanning various information tables, booth-sitting for vendors who need a break or are teaching a class, and then on Sunday, helping the vendors schlep their remaining goodies back to their vehicles.

In return for your help, you’ll get one of the elusive YarnCon goodie bags! And a t-shirt! Also, our undying gratitude. Seriously, it’s one of the best gigs going.

Interested? Head over to our Volunteer Form and let us know!

Only 36 days until YarnCon! See you soon!

Class Registration is Live!

And we are so excited about this year’s line-up, and we think you will be too! You can register right here at

We have new spinning classes, along with the basics; you can learn new crochet techniques; add new bind-offs to your skill set, and new and better ways to weave in the those ends (yes, please!!); ever run into garter tabs in a shawl pattern, but had no idea, we have you covered; carding; dyeing (an annual favorite, better hurry, that one sells out every year); seriously, don’t take my word for it. Go check it out for yourselves, and sign up for our fun and informative workshops. After all, you will want to sit down and learn some new skills for all the wonderful new yarn and fiber you just purchased from our outstanding vendors.

Just over a month to go before our 10th YarnCon, and we are counting down the days! What are you looking forward to at this year’s YarnCon?
