Stitches United, Hartford Weekend

People making beautiful things, wearing hand-made, one-of-a-kind garments. Totes, hats, scarves, shawls, wraps. Socks. Should you see something wonderful, ask about it. People are what make Stitches events so special. Stitches United, Saturday, April 29 and Sunday, April 30, all indoors at the Connecticut Convention Center, Hartford.

Learn to knit, crochet. Try on yoga pants, learn how to make a pair. Check out a workshop or class, sit in for a demonstrations, enjoy all the sights and sounds – the exhibition floor also features a food court. New products, timeless crafts and arts, supplies, books, patterns – plus all the yarn in a kaleidoscope of weights, color combinations – exotics to traditional fibers. Sit awhile in the airy, sun-lit glassed-in atrium area, knit or just relax. A true feast for makers – and we’ve met knitters and entrepreneurs from up and down the East Coast at previous events. The market is open Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Sunday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Entrance fee is $10; $15 two-day pass. Here is the link to frequently asked questions.
