Let’s plan some classes!

Planning for YarnCon 2018 is moving along at a fast clip this year, dare I say we turned up the dial to 11? (Yeah, I went there.) We have never filled the vendor spaces as quickly as we did this year! You really like us! And now it is time to show the same love to the educational side of the show. 

If you have ideas for a workshop, now is the time to send those proposals, and here is the form you need to fill out:

We can’t wait to see what you have in store for us!

YarnCon 2018 is full!

Well, that was fast. YarnCon 2018 is full to bursting!

We had an incredible response this year, and all full-size booth spaces filled up in a record NINE DAYS. Many amazing vendors, new and returning, will be on hand to woo and wow you in April. Soon we’ll start previewing them and their luscious goodies on our Facebook page, so tune in starting in January to see those.

Technically, there are still a few mini booths available (4’x4′), so if you are interested in one, email us asap at info(at)yarncon(dot)com.

Swatching 2018

Team YarnCon here, excited to announce that the vendor application for YarnCon 2018 is now open! You can find the link right here:

This part is like swatching for a project you have made before, but you have new yarn, and you want to be sure it will fit. And the beauty of handmade is you can customize as you go! Maybe you didn’t like the neck on the sweater last time, or the sleeve length; you can change those parts and still end up with a great sweater. That is how planning for YarnCon feels every fall, like a familiar project you get to start again and make even better.

The applications are coming in a terrific speed, so please apply now if you want to be a part of YarnCon 2018. This one goes to 11!
