Stitches West Schedule

Have you heard? Stitches West will be at the Santa Clara Convention Center, February 21-24! If you have never heard of this mecca of all things knitting/ crochet/ spinning, then let me be the first to tell you what it's all about! Stitches is a convention held once a year on the West coast where retailers share their wares! It's as amazing as it is overwhelming, but you can escape the madness at the 'Nest'. We have exclusives that you won't find at Stitches!

Thursday, 2/21 and Friday, 2/22: We will be open our regular hours, 11-7pm. Stop by after Stitches and show off your purchases!

Saturday 2/23: We will be open from 2-9pm, which is exciting in and of itself, but wait! there's more!
-We are sponsoring the 'KnitWhits: Patterns and Kits for Colorful Knitters' booth at Stitches, so please visit Tina and see the new designs she has to offer!

South West Trading Company, one of our beloved yarn companies, is including our postcard in the 2000 SWTC goodie bags (full of yummy yarn goodness!) they will be handing out at Stitches! They will have a lot of samples on display in their booth and we have the yarn! Incidentally, SWTC is the producer of 'SWTC Love' our Yarn of the Month!

Saturday night from 6:30-9pm we will be hosting an exclusive "Release Party" complete, but not limited to:

- Exclusive hand-dyed yarn from Hazel Knits! We are the ONLY store in California to carry this wonderful hand-dyed sock yarn. If the name sounds familiar, Hazel Knits has been raved about and knitted into 'Monkey' socks by YarnHarlot and gloves/mittens of her own design by WendyKnits. The designer, Wendee Shulsen-Wienker, is coming from Seattle, WA and will be bringing special surprises just for our customers! Limited edition signature Bobbin's Nest Studio products will be announced and available! Some, but not all, of the festivities are listed below to wet your whistle. :)

Goodie bags (quantities limited)
Raffles, games and prizes
Guest designers (come and see what all of the fuss is about)
Parade of Stars- bring the first thing you ever knitted, crocheted, or sewed and collect your gold star!
Champagne and light refreshments

Sunday 2/24: We will be open for limited hours (1-5pm) on Sunday for Stitches patrons. Show us your Stitches ticket stub and get 10% off your Sunday product purchase!

Monday 2/25 AND Tuesday 2/26: CLOSED Pin It

I really wanted to attend the cross stitch scarf events. I even already bought the yarn and the book when I was last in the store, so this would've been perfect. But alas, with a newborn baby now, knitting and going out are just not happening yet.
