Decision, Decisions

I’m planning on going to a knitting convention next year, and I’m stuck between going to a Vogue Knitting Live again, or trying out a Stitches convention.

I know I like VK Live, but the Stitches conventions might be pretty good too. So I’m looking for opinions – have you been to a Stitches? If so, what did you think of it? If you have been to both, which did you like better? Or is there an entirely other knitting convention that I don’t even know about that is even better than both of them?

    1. LOL! I think my Mom and I have talked ourselves into Stitches West next February. Still not finalized, but it’s looking that way right now 🙂 I would like to get to Chicago one of these years, so Midwest is definitely on the list at some point!


  1. I’ve been to a Stitches, way back in the 1990’s, but not VKLive. Yet. I’ll be Teaching at VKLive in Columbus in November!

    Do you like big shows or small shows? I have always loved Madrona Fiber Arts Festival in Tacoma, WA. It’s done now, but Red Alder is continuing in that same space, at the same time of year (February). It’s a very nice sized show, not overwhelming.

    1. Wish I could get to VK Live in Columbus – your classes look so interesting! I know I’m not a fan of super-small retreats where I’m sharing a room with a stranger, but other than that, not sure. I liked VKL last fall quite a bit. I think a small to medium show would be OK too. Good to know something is continuing on more or less in the Madrona vein – I was sorry to have missed out on that! Will have to put that on the bucket list, along with the Nordic knit thing at the Seattle Nordic museum 🙂
