YARN FEST IS COMING- GET READY TO ENHANCE YOUR STASH!!!!
This year’s vendor showcase takes place Thursday, April 7, 2016. Doors open at 6pm.
Our annual festival has grown over the years to the point where vendors now reach out to the Guild to be part of this exciting event. Over 20 vendors from across Western New York and Pennsylvania will showcase an array of yarn, fiber, knitted items, and knitting tools. Some vendors will have kits, patterns and items for spinning and weaving too, plus many unique gift items. Many vendors from previous years will make a return trip along with new vendors like MarigioldJen and Hobbledehoy Yarn and Fiber. Each year the Guild plans new surprises and this year, in addition to the Knit Buffalo Yarn Truck, we’ll have the 716 Food Truck on hand from 4-9pm for your dining pleasure! The food truck is an adjunct to the popular 716 Restaurant at the Harbor Center and will have a variety of items available including vegetarian options, with prices ranging from $3.00 to $10.00. The popular raffles will grow this year with the addition of raffles from the Guild’s library and two memberships to the Guild for the 2016-17 season. Bring your pattern questions as our knitting doctors will be in the house to help you solve your knitting dilemmas, and join others as they sit and knit in our knitter and spinner’s corner.
Yarn Fest is for everyone: knitters of all experience levels and non-knitters alike who will delight in the knitted socks, bags, pottery, and other items for sale. Vendors will accept cash, check and credit cards. Grab a friend and be sure to get to Yarn Fest on April 7th. This year’s event will not disappoint! If you love fiber and high quality fiber products, this is the show for you. Mark your calendars and come ready to shop, shop, shop!!!!
