Event :: Knit City 2013

Yesterday Amanda and Fiona, the lovely ladies of Knit Social, had announced the Knit City 2013 class and vendor line-up.  And let me tell you, the class and instructor line-up is pretty darn awesome.  I mean, Yarn Harlot??  Wise Hilda (aka Kate Atherley)??  Holli Yeoh??  Kim Werker??   Did I mention THE Yarn Harlot??  Cause yeah, she's going to be there.  When I found out that she'll be at this year's Knit City, I almost lost it.  I've been dying to go to one of her lectures.  Would hand over my stash to take one of her classes.  I would do anything to just be in her presence and to breathe in her knitterly aura in hopes that maybe it'll rub off on me.  Ok...that last one sounded a little creepy.  But you know what I mean...right?

Right?!?  

Well, creepiness aside, this year's Knit City is going to be amazeballs.  And now that everything is official, I can finally come clean with my little secret.  Guess what guys?  Who's short, Asian, sews project bags, and will be a vendor at Knit City?  ME!! 

I'm so incredibly excited!!  And now you know why I've been oh so quiet on the blog as of late.  I know a lot of you were wondering why I was so stressed out about sewing up stock for Fibrations, well, I was secretly sewing bags for both events!  I'll definitely have a selection of both small and large zippered box project bags, as well as drawstring bags.  I'm hoping to have a small selection of small zippy pouches and a few other goodies as well!  If you follow me on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter, you'll be able to catch a few glimpses of some of the fabrics, bags, and other fun treats that I will have in my booth.

    I'm so happy that you're going to be a vendor so I can say hi and possibly buy another project bag in person.
