Spring 2011 Knitting Events

Posted by Fairy Yarnmother on February 9, 2011

Be sure to check out the following knitting events in Wisconsin ( I’m vending as Fairy Yarnmother at all of them)  (be sure to stop by and say hello.)  :

The Janesville Knit-it is on Feb. 18th and 19th in Milton, WI.  Here’s the website, http://jakg.org/id18.html to register.  It’s put on by the Janesville area knitting guild and has lots of fun things to keep you busy.   There’s a huge room downstairs where you can sit, knit and people watch all day.   Punxsutawney Phil (hopefully that’s the spelling) didn’t see his shadow on groundhog’s day;  that means that winter is officially ended and we can all start enjoying being out again.  This is the first show of the year and it’s so much fun to see what people have been working on during the cold weather.  You’ll like the facilities too, very sunny and uplifting!

Sheep in the City is the next week after the Knit-in, Feb 25th-27th in Oak Creek, WI.  Here’s their website, http://web.mac.com/jmassie1/Sheep_in_the_City/Welcome.html.  Jan Massie has put together another great show this year, so don’t miss it.  Jan has lots of photos to look at so you can get the gist of what that show is like.  It’s a relaxed atmosphere where you can shop, spin, knit, make friends and most of all have fun.

Madison Knit-in is on Mar. 19th in Madison, WI.  That show is put on by the Madison Knitting Guild and here’s their website, http://www.madisonknittersguild.org/knitin.html.  This is my 2nd year vending at the event; before that I took classes at the knit-in so I’m familiar with both ends of the show.  It’s a well orchestrated event; they get some really big names to come out to speak, like Lily Chin and Jean Moss.  The Madison guild has 400+ members so they have lots of volunteers to make it great.  You’ll like being around that many people, they’re friendly and helpful and yet they’ll treat you like  family.

Wisconsin Spin-in is on Apr. 7th-9th in Pewaukee, WI.  http://www.wispinin.org/ is their website.  This show is put on by the Friendly, Feisty Fiber Guild.  Luci Williams has done a great job organizing the event; they’ve got some interesting classes scheduled and lots of great vendors!  There’ll even be live music there to spin by (one year it was hammered dulcimers).  I’m sure everyone will find something to enjoy at this show.   This is the first year that the event has been scheduled in the spring and we’ve (by we I mean southeast Wi) been lucky to have the event in our area for a couple of years now.
