YarnCon 2009 Was a Blast!

What an amazing day! We want to thank all our wonderful vendors for making YarnCon such a great show. We couldn't do it without you! We'll bask in the post-show glow for a short while, but we already have big ideas for next year.

And now, a nap. Ahh.

YarnCon on the Radio!

If you were listening to 88.7 WLUW in Chicago this past Thursday morning, you might have heard a piece about YarnCon on Outside the Loop Radio! The show's producer, Mike Stephen, interviewed Sara about the show and what we mean by the "yarny arts."

Missed it? Listen to the archived version!

See you and your yarny selves tomorrow at YarnCon 2009!

YarnCon 2009 is One Week Away!

main auditorium

Somehow, September and October have flown by, and the third annual YarnCon is now just a week away. We're excited for you to see our lineup of vendors that we can hardly stand it. Have you seen the 2009 list yet?

And workshops! Whether you're looking to learn to knit, learn to spin, or make a unique felted pin or beaded toggle for an FO, we've got you covered. The $3 show admission grants you free access to all the classes, although one or two have extra fees for materials.

On top of it all, we're happy to present the Craft Lounge for the second year. Sit, relax, knit, spin, crochet, or just revel in your new acquisitions at our comfy round tables in the West Gym.

See you next Saturday at the Pulaski Park Fieldhouse!
