Third Coast Fiber Arts Festival, Second Annual -- Early Notice

So many people have been asking for a heads-up, so here it is: We have scheduled the Second Annual Third Coast Fiber Arts Festival for Friday and Saturday, October 25-26, 2013, again at my beloved McGregor Memorial COnference Center, midtown Detroit, on the Wayne State University campus. We now learn that the dates coincide with another local festival, but we had absolutely no choice in the matter when we scheduled it some months ago. In any event, the dates chosen for local events had not yet been posted. We were dealing with a list of instructors who had already contracted to teach on knitting cruises, etc., and we had to heed the Jewish high holidays. Please look for additional news in this blog and at Knitters Review, the events list. Here is a partial list of instructors (the list is growing): Laura Bryant (with a big Prism trunk show in addition to workshops, and book-signings for her new XRX book), Chris Bylsma (we will have a large selection of her patterns), Edie Eckman (the crochet queen!), Candace Eisner-Strick (yet more of her brilliant workshops), Barry Klein (with a huge Trendsetter trunk show, in addiiton to workshops), Sarah Peasley (she was a huge hit last year!), Lynne Wardrop (more Siamese socks!), Jill Bigelow Suttell (workshops galore), and............stay tuned. The call for vendors will go out fairly soon; we will be moving the vendor floors so that all of them are above ground level. svb
