Hello, hello and welcome to part 3 in our series of Annie’s Craft Festival Features!
Encompassing a tremendous swath of retail space, this is a one-stop-shop for all things craft. From knitting needles, to yarn, to fabric and notions, we have something for anyone of any passion and skill level. If you are a fan of Annie’s Craft Store and our catalogs, this will be the place to be to see them “come to life”!
Don’t think that this is all just shopping, though, as we have many exciting activities going on within this space, too!
Live demonstrations will be taking place on many different craft categories for attendees to learn essential crafting skills from experts in that area.
We have book signings for some of our many fabulous pattern books we offer so don’t miss your chance to meet the designer and author of them!
A measuring station will also be held within the Marketplace so everyone can learn how to accurately measure, whether it be for quilting, sewing or even knitting (hey, we all have to know if our garments blocked to the right size, am I right?).
Following in our “how-to” theme, we will also be featuring a Stitch Doctor on both Saturday and Sunday where you will be able to get help with that pattern you’ve been stuck on, or on a stitch you just can’t seem to get right from some of the best in the business. So don’t forget to come by and pick our brains with all of YOUR burning questions!
For a more beginner friendly approach, be sure to stop by Annie’s Craft Academy, open all three days of the festival, to learn a brand new skill! Have you always wanted to learn how to crochet or cross stitch? Then this is the place to be as you are taught the foundations you need to get started!
Finally, take a break and sit down for a spell while you participate in some great Make & Takes! Featuring projects in paper crafting, cross stitch, general crafts, needlework, knitting and crochet! These will be fun projects for you to do with a friend or to meet fellow crafters while you get to express your creativity. What could be better? Plus, come see me on Sunday for the knitting Make & Take that I’m sure will be a blast.
What would any festival be without prizes?!?
A sad one, that’s what.
Luckily, we have a smorgasbord of amazing prizes and gift bags all throughout the festival that you can entire to win. Prizes in every craft category is up for grabs (can anyone say FREE YARN?) that is just itching to be won and taken home with some lucky knitter, perhaps that knitter will be YOU!
From crafting to learning to winning, the Annie’s Marketplace truly has it all.
Well, except one thing…
