ALEXA’S IDEA OF A GOOD TIME:
- Pack tons of yarn, fibre, designers, dyers and makers into the same place at the same time
- Put on your most beloved hand-knit socks
- Bring your stash lust and holiday knitting list, and ENJOY KNIT CITY 2012!
For those of you who aren’t already in the know, the talented women at Knit Social have created Vancouver’s very own fibre festival – Knit City! Packed with yarn, fibre, local designers, and great classes it will be a very exciting weekend! <click for more details>
