With less than 1 week to Stitches SoCal, I am getting yarn, crochet hooks, and patterns ready. Why? You ask, because I will be teaching How To Crochet in The Playground. Along with another quick demonstration on how to crochet my cup cozy.
Stitches SoCal is a 4 day event being held Thursday November 1st to Sunday November 4, in Pasadena at the Pasadena Convention Center, 300 Green Street. 4 days of classes, shopping, demonstrations, how to’s and more.
Stitches SoCal is making their first appearance in Los Angeles area because of the overwhelming desire from knitters, crocheters, weavers, quilters to have a large conference in one of the largest cities in the US. Here is your chance, if you live in Los Angeles, to take a class or 2, shop at the many vendors in the marketplace, see a fashion show, or even buy a pattern book from an author and have it signed.
Did you know Stitches is celebrating 27 years in the consumer fiber events? Stitches continues to have their annual west coast conference in Santa Clara, in February each year. It has even added Salt Lake City for 2019.
The Playground is where people can see demonstrations of knitting, crocheting, weaving, quilting, spinning techniques. On Saturday, Nov 3, I will be showing people how to crochet: chain, single crochet, double crochet, even treble crochet. You are welcome to see me in action.
On Sunday Nov 4, I will be demonstrating my cup cozy. A fun, quick project any crocheter can make. These make great stocking stuffers, gifts for co-workers for the coffee enthusiast; even a bridal shower gift. For those that see me in The Playground, not only will you get to see the demonstration, you will get the pattern, and some may even get a cozy too.
Be sure to stop by Booth #432 for El Segundo Slipt Stitchers, the knitting group I belong to. The guild is part of the stitch marker swap. Stop by and swap one of your stitch markers with one of ours. We are having a fun Vegas Style knitting and crochet scarf project for you to try out, along with learning about our guild, what we do, our charities that we donate to and possibly join our guild.
This is sure to be a fun event, with plenty of shopping to do. Who doesn’t need more yarn, stitch markers, knitting needles, crochet hooks, patterns, books… you get it. Hope to see you there.
Live life to the fullest, get out and enjoy the weather.
