The last weekend in February my mom and I made the trip down to Santa Clara for Stitches West 2017! If you haven't heard, Stitches West is a knitting convention that takes place on the west coast (though there are others around the country). This event is hosted by XRX Knitting Universe and is one of the largest knitting conventions, with a fantastical amount of indie dyers and larger dye companies.
This is the fourth year my mom and I have made it out to the event and I love the weekend we get to spend together. We drove down Thursday night and attended the market place Friday and Saturday, and for the first time we attended the fashion show and dinner on Friday night.
Stitches is magical because you are surrounded by yarny people who love and practice the same thing you do! Here are a few photos of what the market place looked like and the fun my mom and I were having while we shopped and attended.
If you ever have the opportunity to attended Stitches West DO IT! Don't even hesitate to say yes, it's worth it to see and experience.
