Get-together at Stitches Midwest! NOW WITH PICTURES!!
Hey KHers!! We've been talking about this for ages, but thought we'd better make it official...

Amy has named Illinois The Center of the Knitting Universe . SO, we are hoping that LOTS of us can make it to Illinois for Stitches Midwest.

The event takes place August 10-13. Even if we dont take classes, we can meet each other face-to-face, organize LYS crawls, and wander around the convention center en masse! Howie is thinking he might even host a potluck BBQ on Friday evening!

So, think about it...the time to WARN DHs, SOs and children is NOW!



PS....if someone wants to do a little organizing and check into blocks of hotel rooms and/or discounted rates for same, this would be the time to volunteer!

I think it's a fabulous idea, and one that's been percolating in my head too... yeah, everyone, check out Southwest Airlines at southwest.com - it's amazing what some of their fares are (airtran.com might be a good place too - we've gotten good fares from Midway to Newark there).

I'm not planning on registering for any classes at Stitches - just visit the vendors and meet KH'ers is what I'm thinking... and thanks, Howie, for offering to host a BBQ!!!

:thinking: I think that my Aunt still works for Southwest now that you mention it. And TJ was asking what he could get me for my birthday. hmmm... I would not even mind bringing Sophia along break her in early Just stick her in the back pack and she will be happy and I can enjoy the fibre goodness. :thinking:

I will have a better chance of going if I ask for it as a gift and take the phia-meister.
Question though The flight would be going into Midway is that very far from the festivities?
off to plot... er ... plan

Maybe we can coordinate our flights, Sandra, and some angel will pick up both of us! :rofling:

I'm heading in Friday morning (noonish, actually) and leaving late Sunday afternoon.

Happy plot-- um, planning!

O'Hare is closer to Rosemont, but Midway is closer to my house. Midway is only 45 minutes from Rosemont, anyway, depending on traffic.

No way of celebrating earlier, huh? Too bad it's your first! I mean I'm happy for you...oh, you know what I mean!
