Red Heart won the Women’s Choice Award again in 2017 for the Most Recommended Yarn Brand. We’ll be sponsoring the awards show on May 17, 2017 in Los Angeles, California to celebrate, and you can follow along!
The Pittsburgh Knit & Crochet Festival and Pittsburgh Creative Arts Festival for 2017 is coming up! It’s in the David L. Lawrence Convention Center on March 24-26, 2017. If you knit, crochet, quilt, sew, or otherwise craft, this show is for you.
Our spokesperson Marly Bird will be at the Pittsburgh Knit & Crochet Festival! She’s teaching several classes for both knitters and crocheters — register now so you won’t miss her! Plus, in each class you’ll receive a special gift from Red Heart.
I’ve recently become aware of the artist, Gina Rose Gallina, and her colorful way of expressing herself with crochet using Red Heart yarn. I’m just starting to follow this creative force, but wanted to introduce her fun, fantastic yarn pursuits to you. If you are going to be at Vogue Knitting Live, be sure to see and enjoy Gina’s Queen Bee work there. And if you are near Eureka Springs, Arkansas you can see Gina’s work at the Green Gourd on 12 Center Street.
I still need to pack and get myself there, but I wanted to remind everyone that the Knit & Crochet Show is happening this week! Classes begin Wednesday through Saturday. And the shopping market is open Friday and Saturday.
The Design Competition grows each year as crocheters inspire the creativity in each other. It is an exciting part of the annual Knit & Crochet Show conference that is being held in Charleston, SC, July 13-16, 2016. Since I love the competition, I am writing to encourage you to enter the contest and share your original designs. . Your design will be displayed on the show floor and you may even win a nice monetary prize. :-)
Recently my best friend and I joined the Crochet Guild of America. Prior to this we were unaware of the Knit & Crochet Show. One of the perks of belonging to CGOA is you get to attend the conference for free. Can you imagine? This show has been going on for years and we didn’t know about it. Please allow me to give a brief overview.
If you are a crocheter or knitter that loves enjoying your craft alone, and gets all the inspiration you need from the many websites and Ravelry, then you do not need to read any further. But if you would like to be opened up to the larger world of wonderful people (in the flesh) that knit and crochet, I whole-heartedly encourage you to join a group.
