We've been a sponsor of the Crochet Guild of America and the Knitting Guild Association's joint yarn-event, the Knit & Crochet Show, for several years. It's an event that we love to attend, because we love seeing all of our friends who are members of local knit and crochet guilds. We also love seeing our designer and teacher friends. This summer's Knit & Crochet Show will be taking place in Minneapolis, MN on July 29 - 31, and it will have classes, a marketplace, contests, and more. Click here to visit the Knit & Crochet Show website for more information.
Prior to the Knit & Crochet Show, the Crochet Guild of America also holds their Professional Development Day (July 27, 2011) sponsored by Lion Brand. It's a day of workshops and panels for aspiring designers/teachers/yarn-store owners to learn from experts in the industry, network with others in the community, and to share ideas and get feedback. Want to know more about this special day? Click here to read about Laura's experiences at the event last year.
If you're able to make it, I hope you'll stop and say hello to myself or Jack, as we would love to meet you in person! Or perhaps we'll see you in Greensboro, NC, in the fall!
