Shows this weekend

I apologize to our lovely readers who are not local - this local stuff must get boring. Sorry ;-)

We are going to be at the Kitchener Waterloo Knitters Fair this Saturday. We will have a single table at the fair, and we're only bringing stock that relates to knitting (small needles, seedbeads for knitting, books). For any knitters that are even remotely local - this is the show to be at!

About the Knitters' Fair

The Waterloo County Knitters' Fair is the largest event of its kind in Canada. For many years, the Kitchener-Waterloo Knitters' Guild has offered a one-day fair organized "by knitters for knitters."

This Fair, held at Bingemans in Kitchener, now presents more than 70 vendors offering the latest and greatest of knitting products. Imagine 35,000 square feet—in 2 large showrooms—dedicated to the craft of knitting, offering an incredible display of a diverse variety of yarns in an explosion of colour, knitting books, patterns, and accessories.

We also offer:

  • Low admission price
  • Supervised childrens' craft area
  • Free information sessions

I have never permitted myself to go. I LOVE yarn, and I can't stop myself from buying it, and planning all sorts of fabulous projects. I never have time to do them though. Come down and say Hi to Cynthia and Marg.

Sunday - Peterborough Craft market - While beadFX won't be at the show - a number of our customers will be there (and yes, my mom and I will have our lotions and potions there) - Come say hi to Mona (metal clay), Wendy (jewellery), along with others that I'm forgetting
