I think the title says it all. I’m leaving for Stitches West in Santa Clara, CA on Thursday and coming back on Sunday. Yippee!!! I’m a Stitches virgin so I’m sure I’ll have tons of pics and stories to share. (Hopefully, that last sentence won’t attract unsavory types to leave me comments.) I’m super excited for the Market of course. But I’m not going to go overboard. My plan is to just buy things that I can’t otherwise get at my LYS or easily online.
I’m taking 3 classes, a hairpin lace class, steeking, and a sock class. Fun stuff. I didn’t want to overwhelm myself with classes. For those who haven’t perused the Stitches site, you can take 24 hours of classes in the “Works” option. I thought that might be a bit much especially the first time. It might have been fun to do that many classes if I had a buddy going with, but I don’t know anyone else who is going. Luckily I have friends who live in the area who I can hang out with when I get out of the convention center.
Look forward to a full report next week complete with pictures!
