Hello again, knitters and crocheters! Welcome back to the second round of our monthly regional roundup. It’s finally September, so I hope that means you filled your Labor Day weekend with fun, family, and yarn. Now it’s time to pencil in your schedule with even more yarn events this month, so you better get out your calendars!
In case you missed it, there were a lot of things that happened in August this year. One of our team members got to attend the Midwest Fiber and Folk Art Fair in Grayslake, IL, and proceeded to tell about her adventures in this blog post. Check it out to fill yourself in!
If you’re feeling like you need some inspiration to keep your crochet and knitting projects going, then you should definitely join in on the fun and attend one of the events listed below. Since the kids have gone back to school and summer fun is winding down, now is the perfect time to attend an event. Take some time for yourself to have fun, learn about yarn trends, and maybe even pick up a new skill. You’ll never know what you’ll find and experience at one of these fun-filled events.
