3 Reasons to Go to Interweave Yarn Fest
Slip on a pair of your comfiest shoes, grab your shopping bag and a friend, and join us at Interweave Yarn Fest. Our annual multicraft fiber festival will be held at the Embassy Suites Loveland Hotel Conference Center & Spa in Loveland, Colorado, just an hour north of Denver, April 12–15, 2018.
This will be my third Yarn Fest. It’s something I’ve looked forward to every year since I moved to Colorado. Each event has left me invigorated to throw myself further into my craft, and I always make new friends. Here are my top three reasons to come out and spend the day.
1. Take a One-Hour Class
Interweave Yarn Fest offers the perfect opportunity to learn a new-to-you craft. Try your hand at knitting, crocheting, spinning, or weaving. The beginner workshops don’t require a big time commitment or for you to purchase supplies. And, if you take the spinning workshop, I’ll see you in class! (If you haven’t heard, I’m on a mission to teach people to spin.)
2. Shop Around for Inspiration
The Marketplace holds many temptations. I create a budget so that I can bring home something extra special. All Interweave crafts are represented from weaving to tatting. Several of the vendors offer handmade tools, one-of-a-kind hand-dyed yarns, and specialty items that are hard to find.
3. Sit and Chat with Other Fiber Lovers
The Marketplace and workshops are a mighty big draw, but my favorite reason to go to Interweave Yarn Fest is the people I meet. Grab your needlework and strike up a conversation with someone new! When it comes to fiber and crafts, you’ll never run out of things to talk about, and you’ll have made a new friend to meet up with next year.
Register here for a beginner workshop and a Marketplace pass and enjoy a day of creative inspiration on the Front Range. Or immerse yourself and sign up for a 3- or 7½ -hour class in a variety of crafts. In addition to me, staff from all of our yarn and fiber magazines will be at the event. We hope to see you there!
