Come Crochet With ME!
I'm heading back to the Pittsburgh Knit and Crochet Festival Feb 10-12th, 2012 with lots of new things.
Backstory: Ok, so I started teaching at this festival years ago from my cousin telling the event organizer that her cousin was a designer. Since that introduction, I have taught every year (except when CJ was so little and I was nursing). Why do I keep coming back year after year? The people! Seriously, you will be blown away by the skill and love of all things fibery in Pittsburgh. Everyone is super excited to touch new yarns, meet other yarny friends, and general glee of yarn fun; it is totally infectious.
This year: I will be teaching and, new this year, I will have a booth! (Booth #57) I will be selling all my books, DVDs, patterns, and (totally new) crochet jewelry. Crochet will totally be represented you believe me! Of course, anything I don't sell there I will keep in case any of you wanted a chance to purchase it too.
