Will Stitches East in Santa Clara next week be your first chance to attend a Stitches conference? Read our latest blog post for 8 tips on how to survive without being totally overwhelmed! Here's a sneak peek at the blog post:
The CGOA Chain Link conference in Reno, NV begins with Professional Development Day on Wednesday, September 12 followed by 4 days of crochet (and knitting) classes and 3 days of fabulous shopping opportunities on the show floor. I will be arriving on Monday, September 10. If anybody else is attending, please post here. Crochetville Vendor Booth This year, Crochetville will have a vendor booth on the show floor in conjunction with Red Heart. We will be selling a number of Red Heart yarns, primarily the new Boutique line, crochet hooks and accessories, crochet-themed jewelry, books, and patterns. We hope to have a number of book signings by some of your favorite crochet designers. If there's something in particular you'd like to see in our booth, please let us know. If you'd like to volunteer to help out in the booth, let us know. It's a great way to meet a lot of people and talk crochet! Conference Classes If you're attending, what classes are you taking? Let us know here. Maybe you'll find there will be a Crochetville friend in class with you. I'll be attending Professional Development Day, but I won't be taking any actual crochet classes since I'll be staffing the booth all the time the show floor is open. Roommate Finder If you'd like to have a roommate to help cut down on the expense of attending the conference, please post here. Be sure to include any special needs, such as: Do you go to bed early or late? Do you smoke? (Even though the hotel rooms are non-smoking, some people's allergies could be affected by rooming with a smoker.) Do you have pets at home? (I have 5 cats, and I know I bring some amount of cat hair with me whenever I travel. I'd hate this to bother someone with severe cat allergies.) Do you like to bring friends back to the hotel room for big chat sessions? Do you have any allergies? (perfume, hair products, lotions, etc.) Do you snore? Does someone else's snoring bother you? Are you a heavy or light sleeper? Do you like to have the TV on all the time? When will you arrive? When will you check out? The more information you can give to a prospective roommate, the better chance you'll be able to find a good match.

You can even bring your own designs, crocheted garments, enthusiasm or curiosity, and plan to share and spend a great fun evening with fellow crochet enthusiasts! To help Drew get an idea of how many people will be there, please RSVP here. (Sorry, that's a facebook page, and you'll need a facebook account to RSVP.) In addition to Drew, you'll also get to see **ME** at this event! I'll be at STITCHES West all week long in the CGOA booth on the show floor and at at the pajama party Friday night in addition to Drew's event. I can't wait to see all the crochet inspiration!!
