Stitches West 2016 - Day 1
Biggest even in the bay area for knitters, Stitches West is the biggest yarn exhibition in the US.
It includes classes and a large market place.
It is the opportunity to meet your favorite vendors, designers, dyers, local yarn shops, meet people for different part of the country who share the same passion.
The Stitches market is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday, but if you are signed up for a class, you have the opportunity of attending a preview of the market Thursday night.
Needless to say that I look forward to attend every year.
I usually signed up for one-hour market session
because it includes the 3 day pass for the market as well as the Thursday night preview.
I found out over the years that the class is always fun to take.
First comes first, my favorite yarn store
I didn't wait a minute as soon as the market was open!!
