Say it Rah-shay By Mar 24, 2015 No Comments

Due to a scheduling conflict I was unable to attend the Vogue Knitting Live which was held in New York of this year. I don’t think I will be able to swing Pasadena but want to share this info with my knitting friends!

Vogue Knitting LIVE heads to Pasadena for their one-of-a-kind, fashion-forward, knitting event at the Pasadena Convention Center, Friday April 17 – Sunday April 19! Knitting and crocheting fans alike can take master-level hand-knitting workshops on fit and shaping, pattern writing, lace, socks, and more. Attendees can shop the Marketplace, which showcases new yarn and accessories from around the world, watch designer fashion shows and browse the knitted art gallery.

Vendors come from all over the world—across the US, Brazil, Israel, Ireland, Japan, and Italy, offering needles, hooks, notions, books, patterns, kits, finished garments, and of course yarn! Fiber will be everywhere—from wool to cotton, silk to bison, mohair to stainless steel, and cashmere to qiviut. Pasadena offers sophisticated charm, culture, history, and fun in a world of dining and shopping to theater and art galleries!

“We are very excited for our return to Southern California! We are looking forward to a weekend celebrating fashion, fiber and education with fiber lovers from around the world” says Trisha Malcolm, Editor-in Chief of Vogue Knitting Magazine.

  • The Warmth of Mohair Blanket Design Contest; the finalist’s blankets will be on display all weekend and the winner will be announced at the Saturday night evening Cocktail Reception
