Knitters Frolic
I was recently at Stitches East in Hartford, CT and learned of another event called Knitters Frolic. I was told that it is popular in Toronto and that there are many natural dyed yarns in the marketplace. Has anyone heard of this event and can share opinion on it? I'm trying to decide whether to attend next year. Thank you.

I haven't heard of this event, but would definitely be interested in hearing people's experiences/opinions on it. It would be cool to know of something like that happening in my area for once!

I'm a member of the guild that hosts this event and I can say I really enjoy it. There is a 1 day market as well 2 days of workshops. We have a good variety of vendors as well as many hand dyers. There were 66 vendors in total. You can read a little more about last years event here on my blog.
