STITCH UP CHICAGO 2019 IS HERE!!!!
Stitch & Hustle is all about the many makers and small maker business owners that make up this incredible community. We encourage offline support and growth as much as online. Connecting is how we all thrive. Stitch Up Chicago was born from the idea of taking an online group offline to share fiber love. Three years later here we are planning our Third Annual event and humbled by how our community has grown.
This year’s event is so special because it was delayed due to the Government shutdown. Typically we get together in February and share cozy stitches and hide from the last days of Chicago winter. This year we will be ushering in Spring knits and crochet creations as we meet up at the beginning of April.
We also have a NEW home and will be at the incredibly fabulous Godfrey Hotel in downtown Chicago. If you are coming to our event you are eligible for our special discounted hotel rate of $109 per night by using our booking link here.
We are incredibly honored to announce this year’s event line up:
