STITCH UP CHICAGO
FEBRUARY 23-24 2018
We could not be more excited to announce that we are returning the Virgin Hotel Chicago for our second annual Stitch Up Chicago. A place and time for makers to come together, learn and create and share inspiration. This year we have gone all out to really kick things up a notch.
NEW PRE-GAME EVENT JUST ADDED!!!!
We are so excited to announce that we will be returning to Nina's Chicago for afternoon tea and shopping for some Stitch Up Chicago pre-game fun on Friday February 23rd from 1-4pm. Join us for shopping, snack and a casual knit / crochet hang. And enjoy a special shopping discount as a Stitch Up Chicago attendee.
We kick things off with a Friday Knit Knit featuring WOOL AND THE GANG Happy Daze Beanie. Snacks, laughs and yarn. Sounds like a perfect evening, doesn't it? We will also serve up a super yummy dinner. This kit pattern includes three techniques, so you can choose to make it in garter stitch, moss stitch or give twisted rib a try. Don't know how to knit? This hat is PERFECT for beginners and we will have experienced knitters on hand to show you all you need to have a fiber fun night! No telling where the night may take you. Last year our knit crew shut the lounge at the Virgin down!
Saturday morning we start the day with a healthy delicious brunch and featuring the BETTA KNIT Adela Shawl. I LOVE THIS SHAWL! I am so excited for us to work on this kit. No matter what level knitter you are, or even if this is your first time knitting EVER, I hope you join us for this fun and exciting project. This shawl works up quickly and will be your perfect "I made that" item!
