YarnCon is almost here!

Things are getting exciting over here as we get the final pieces in place for YarnCon 2008 on Saturday, Oct. 4th!

We have great vendors, classes and more in store for you this year. We're so thrilled that we commissioned a commemorative poster, designed by Chicago artist (and my brother), Alex Uribe. Want a peek?

These hand-printed posters are signed and numbered (there are only 30, and #1 is being raffled, so you'll want to buy yours early) by the artist. Isn't it lovely? We'll have them for sale at the front along with the YarnCon shirts and pins.

We can't wait to see you on Saturday!

She and her husband are participating in AIDS Run / Walk Chicago 2008, and she is giving you a major incentive to donate: a knitters raffle! Check out details on donating and all the great prizes you can win at kristyland.
