Food Truck Spotlight

YarnCon happens next weekend! Are you ready for this much fun?

Because fiber fanatics cannot live on yarn alone (although we try our best), we are thrilled to announce the food truck lineup for YarnCon 2019. This year, sandwich and American comfort food experts Fat Shallot will be on hand alongside newcomer Yum Dum.  It’s going to be another tasty year!

The Fat Shallot Food TruckHow do delicious, made-to-order sandwiches sound? Just about perfect, that’s how. The Fat Shallot team grills up comfort food, elevated. Think BLT…but with truffle aioli. Yep.
Back at YarnCon for a 2nd year, Yum Dum has been serving tasty dumplings, Baowiches, and their signature Kimcheesey rice balls to lucky Chicagoans since 2014. We’re happy to welcome them back to our annual fiber party!

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!
