Sorry for screaming, but it’s JUST SO EXCITING!!!!
The classes are all full, but the vendor area is open to anybody who pays the $2.00 admission charge, ($5 for the whole weekend) and that works out to less than a dime per vendor, I think. And it’s not just yarn, Knitting Lagniappe has wonderful ceramics, and there was a wonderful handmade basket vendor last year. And the booth with the little travelling project bags that were all SO FANTASTIC that they completely sold out of inventory on the first day and had to stay up all night making more, just so they would be able to take orders. (Yes, they were THAT cool! and would work for beading as well as they do for knitting.) They will be back.
Many of the vendors are local but not all, and most of the farms don’t really have a storefront where you can just walk up some afternoon and squeeze yarn, so this is a great showcase, and a chance to meet a lot of the local knitting store owners too.
We will be in a slightly different spot this year, more toward the center row, off to the left as you walk in the main door. You’ll hear the noise of the Giant Bead Bowl being sifted through, I’m sure.
And we will have all of the colors of our new Dancing Leaves kits, along with our Tila and Triangle kits. We have two new Limited Edition triangle kits for this summer, too – Lizzie’s Ray of Sunshine and Michell’s Pacific Coast! Both are perfect for blue jeans, hot days, and relaxing in the shade.
AND we bought a MBT of size 8 and 6 round seed beads for the Betsy Beads book! They are (say it in that voice, now!) “***FABULOUS!!!!***” (Tried to get the book too, I guess you all got there first. Dangit.) And a lot of other wonderful colors for everything else! We’ll have those with us, and lots of beading supplies, looms, and fun!
Come see us! But don’t go down the close-to-the-airport 121 way, that leads to undue traffic stress. From North Dallas, come down 121 to the Highway 26 exit, follow that till N Main Street in Grapevine, go South (left) until you are just a couple of blocks away from 121/114, and look for the Library/Convenvention center on the left.
