From the woman who brought you Stitch Up Chicago (that would be @144stitches, y’all) comes Stitch Up Brooklyn, a fiber meetup that encourages offline camaraderie and celebration of our shared crafty pursuits. The two-day event, happening July 7-8 in Brooklyn, New York, will not follow the typical vendor/instruction model of other fiber fests, but rather have more community-focused events. During the weekend, enjoy a Fiberlicious Brunch where yarn is also on the menu, spend World Wide Knit In Public Day on a ferry to the Brooklyn Bridge where you will be involved with a community crochet workshop, and have an epic knit night taco party. And if that’s not enough, there is also an add-on Brooklyn yarn crawl hosted by Kristy Glass. Can’t wait until July to meet up with knitty friends? The Stitch Up Brooklyn Ravelry thread is already buzzing.
