Knit City 2016

Wow! It’s hard to believe that we just wrapped up our 5th Knit City! It was such an amazing year, with record numbers of attendees, a larger Marketplace and more classes than ever before. Amanda and I would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to each and every person who came to the show.  We hope you had an amazing and fun weekend!

You can tell just how busy the show was by the fact we took ONE photo all weekend! So, we looked to the Instagram #knitcity2016 tag for some pics that showed off what a fantastic weekend it was.

Today’s off to a good start! #doublerainbow #knitcity2016

   We would also like to take this opportunity to thank our wonderful team of volunteers. Knit City would not exist without you and your hard work. We love you all!

It’s almost time!! #knitcity2016

  There are some great Knit City 2016 podcasts put out there since the show wrapped. Here’s a list of our faves:

 

        And blogs:

        • Sweet Georgia
        • The Gibsons Girl – interviews with designers Kate Atherley, Holli Yeoh, Susan B.  Anderson, Sylvia McFadden and Caitlin ffrench

 

              Thank you all for taking the time to record and post your Knit City experience! If you have a blog post or podcast to add to this list, send us an email at info@knitsocial.ca and we will be happy to include it! Thanks also to our amazing show sponsors! SweetGeorgia Yarns was our Qiviut Sponsor this year and sponsored our Friday night keynote lecture with Ysolda Teague. The SweetGeorgia team very generously handed out cute yarn sample packages to each attendee and also provided ice cream from local shop Rain or Shine! Ancient Arts was our amazing Cashmere Sponsor, and Beehive Woolshop our Alpaca Sponsor. We really appreciate the continued support of these fine businesses.

I got to get my picture taken with @ysolda after her talk last night!! I think this made my whole year!! #igknitters #knitstagram #knitdesign #knittingaddict #knitcity2016 #knitcity A photo posted by Chrissy (@manicpurl) on
