Stitches East Market Place ?
I can't afford, and don't think I would physically be able to keep up with everything to benefit from Stitches East and haven't even considered attending. But I was looking at the website and got to thinking that going to the Market might make a good day trip for me and my knitting friend Julie.

Is the Market open to the public without full registration?
Would it be worth a 1 - 1 1/2 hour drive for us to get there?

I'm going!! you can pay at the door for the market if you aren't attending classes. the market is open for non-registered people on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. my packet doesn't have the market fee listed but I think it was $10 or so.

this will be my first time going- Mom and I are going to go to listen to Brandon Mably and Kaffe Fassett, then shop!

I've heard there are a lot of great vendors that will be there.

We are driving about an hour! SInce we are doing a Thurs-Fri we are staying the nite at a local hotel so we dont have to go back and forth. I'm so excited!

Thanks! That sounds like a lot of fun! I'll have to talk to my husband and my friend to see if either of them are interested in going.

Go! - Absolutely Go! I went down for just the day last year, and it takes me around 2 - 2.5 hours to get to Baltimore. It was worth it. There were just so many beautiful, inspiring things - and then the yarn - oh the yarn!

This year I decided to take a few classes too - and stay over in the area. I can't wait!

And I think I just registered online last year - you can pay a small fee just for the Market, and there are Market Sessions too, for about $30 for a hour long session, if you have any interest in that. If I remember right, the fee for the Market was around $5.
