Speaking of workshops, for the first time ever we're able to offer online registration for them this year! It's terribly exciting. Go and sign up now. No, go on. We'll wait.
Er, well, that's all we wanted to say about that. The show's coming up soon, and we hope to see you there! Spread the word, and tell your friends. Come fondle the fiber and add to your stash!

I already know what I will be working on (I am just starting an afghan, and I hope to get at least a few squares done that day.) How about you? Now, all I have to do is hope I don't miss it again this year; no plague please!

We are pleased to announce that the vendor application for YarnCon is now live on our webpage: http://www.yarncon.com
YarnCon will take place on September 24, 2011 from 11am to 6pm! We hope the later and longer hours will work well for those of you who work on Saturdays. We did move the show up a week in order to secure parking spaces for our vendors. We don't know yet if we will keep the date. We will see how what you think after this year's event, and take it from there. We are still at the Pulaski Park Fieldhouse at 1419 W. Blackhawk.
Every year we try to build on the lessons we learned producing the previous year's show, and this year is no different. Heck, we're already working on next year's show too. We worked long and hard to hammer out the details for this year, and we hope you will be pleased. We got lots of detailed feedback from our vendors and attendees, and we tried to incorporate as many suggestions as we could. We know not everyone will like the date change, and we really tried hard to find the day that would work for most people. I guess this is just a long way of saying, we're listening. We hope you will keep sharing your thoughts with us, and sharing in our yarny adventures.
Now, if you will excuse me, I have a hat to knit, and I would like to get it done so my husband can wear it before Spring is over! Besides, the more stash I knit up now, the more room I will have for yarn on September 24th!

But busy we were, and the result was another lovely (albeit rainy and windy) day spent with hundreds of yarn-lovers. Even with the last minute move to the East Gym, it was a great day, with two rooms full of fantastic vendors, workshops, and yarn enthusiasts.
Thank you, thank you, thank you to all of our vendors, instructors and volunteers. It would not be YarnCon without you!
We also want to thank Heartland Cafe for being a part of YarnCon since the beginning. We want Heartland to be around for many YarnCons to come, but they are having some serious financial problems. Please visit their website to see how you can help them out, or just head over to the Heartland Cafe, and have a tasty meal.
