Knit City Vancouver, a Fibre Fest (Oct 13-14) $10

On the weekend of Oct 13-14, 2012, Knit Social is holding their 1st fibre festival. Not only will there be vendors, but also workshops and lectures.

Hours are Saturday 11-7pm, Sunday 11-5pm.

The first 50 people in line for the opening of the Marketplace on Saturday October 13 (11am) will receive a limited edition Knit City tote bag stuffed with swag from our vendors and sponsors! 

Admission will be $10.00, which includes re-entry for the duration of the weekend. Children 12 and under are free. Volunteers and class registrants receive free admission as well.  You will receive a door prize ticket with your admission fee, with multiple prizes to be won!  Door prizes will be drawn at 3:00pm each day.

Even though it’s called Knit City, it is encompasses all different types of craft.

They are looking for applicants hoping to vend spinning, weaving, rug hooking, knitting and crocheting supplies and equipment. Vendor information and application are on online.

    I was expecting more deals on yarns. I felt it was expensive, although I did leave with some Bergere pattern books that I am pleased with. A large screen with how-to-knit ideas would have been a nice addition. Perhaps next year! All in all it was a Sunday outting on a rainy day. I am looking to going to a Friday meetup and hopefully have time this friday.

    I am back into knitting after many years and would like to learn more techniques. I learned how to knit the european style. Would be interested to get together with a group once a month.
