Heading West… to STITCHES West!

February 11th, 2011


Next week, Jess, Casey, Sarah, and I will be heading out to Santa Clara for STITCHES West! This is a huge west coast yarn extravaganza- classes, a fashion show and other fun events, and an amazing marketplace. This year it is taking place from Thursday, February 17 – Sunday, February 20. We can’t wait! If you’ll be there, we’d love to see you at the Ravelry Happy Hour or one of our Marketplace meetups!

Happy Hour on Thursday night:

Ravelry, along with STITCHES/XRX, will be hosting a Happy Hour on Thursday night, just after the Market Preview! The Happy Hour will be right in the Santa Clara Convention Center, in Ballrooms C, D, E, and F from 8:00 – 9:30 pm.

All are welcome – you do not need a ticket to the Market Preview!

We’ll have a cash bar, music, lots of hello buttons, and best of all, lots of friendly faces to meet and hang out with! We are really excited to meet you all!

Daily Meetups:

We’ll also be hosting daily meetups, in the Marketplace concessions area. If you can, please come by and say hi! These meetups are always a fun way to hang out with a whole bunch of our Ravelry friends… without having to go too far away from the amazing marketplace so we can get right back to stash acquisition. ;)

The official meetup times are:

Friday from 1:00 – 2:00 pm
Saturday from 1:00 – 2:00 pm
Sunday from 10:00 – 11:00 am

Please click on the links to the events pages of any of the events listed above – if you click that you are interested or attending you’ll be able to see other Ravelry friends who will be there as they sign up, too. It’s always fun to see! :) We’re also chatting about these meetups in the STITCHES West group on Ravelry.

Valentine’s Day Party

If you live in the area, Jess and Casey will also be at a Valentine’s Day party at A Verb for Keeping Warm’s shop in Oakland, on February 14th, from 6 pm – 8 pm. More information can be found in the Verb for Keeping Warm Group.

Can’t wait to see you there!
