YarnCon may be months away, but the 2019 application is live today!

Fall is just settling in, and spring seems an eternity away, but as far as Team YarnCon is concerned, April is right around the corner!

The 2019 application is live now! We are taking applications until November 2, 2018, OR SOONER IF THE SHOW FILLS UP, so head on over to the Vendor Application and tell us about yourself. And please spread the word to any friends who want to join in the fun.

Due to an increase in the volume of applications we receive, the jurying process will be more competitive in 2019 than in the past. It is hard for us to choose among so many creative vendors! We will do our best to accept vendors in a way that balances out the offerings and reflects a broad diversity of yarny goods. We thank you all for understanding.

In the meantime, happy making and happy Fall!

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: https://www.yarncon.com/yarncon-2018-request-for-workshop-proposals/

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: https://www.yarncon.com/yarncon-2018-vendor-application/

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!

 

YarnCon 2017 is full!

Well, that was fast. YarnCon 2017 is full!

We had an incredible response this year, and so many amazing vendors, new and returning, will be on hand to dazzle you in April. Soon we’ll start previewing them and their luscious wares on our Facebook page, so tune in starting January 23 to see the goodies.

Technically, there are still a few mini booths available (4’x4′), so if you are interested in one, email us asap. No more spaces left for 2017! Join our mailing list to be the first to know about applications for 2018 (scroll down, form to the right).

YarnCon may be months away, but the 2017 application is live today!

With the winter holidays upon us, even imagining spring seems like an exercise in futility, but as far as Team YarnCon is concerned, April is right around the corner!

The 2017 application is live now! We are taking applications until January 21, 2017, which is sooner than you think, so head on over to the Vendor Application and show us what you make! And please spread the word to anyone you might think has some yarny talents to share.

The deadline for Workshop proposals is January 6, 2017, so if you would like to teach at YarnCon, please head over to the Workshop RFP page and get us your proposal post-haste.

 

In the meantime, happy crafting, and happy holidays!
