Stitches East
Has anyone ever been? I was researching a trade show for a client and stumbled upon this at the Baltimore Convention Center. I want to go!

bump


There are several of our illustrious knitters going. I thought I'd bump this up so they could see this.

I'm going this year!

BabyDill, Sara Jayne, MFG (my mom), Cate and possible Jeep Girl are coming too. We're just going to the Market on Saturday.

I've never been to a Stitches before, but the gals who went to Stitches Midwest back in August had a blast.

Are you planning on going Candice?

I'm so excited! Check out the list of vendors! Lisa Souza! Maybe I'll get the L&V yarn after all!

I am working on my husband... for some reason he doesn't think it sounds like fun. I am in Cleveland, but flights aren't too pricey to BWI.

Here's all the info: (scroll down to see different catagories to click on)

http://www.knittinguniverse.com/flas...php?EventID=28

Looks like it's $8 per day. Less if you buy 2 or 3 days. The classes are mostly sold out. Wow, the 'fashion show' on Friday night is $65!!! That's a lot isn't it!

I think I'm going.... I THINK I've convinced my DH it's worth a trip to Baltimore even though we are going to Rhinebeck this coming Saturday
(WHOOOOOPEEEEE) If I spend a lot this Sat maybe I won't be able to go to Stitches East. I have a friend who is a vendor there and wanted me to go for the full 4 days with her but I couldn't afford classes anyhow so I said no.

It's looks like a lot of fun and then there's those crabs to eat in Baltimore too aren't there?

So you are going to Rhinebeck! I really hope to convince my friend to get me a ticket to go. I'll tell him that I'd really like to meet my forum friends out there. Is there a KH meetup there?
