Just found out--and I don't know if it's a rumor--but the 2009 Stitches South will be held in Atlanta on April 23-29. I don't know any more details. The Atlanta Knitting Guild announced it this month.

I also heard this - but does Knitter's do a Stitches in the south? Is this new for XRX?

It's true and I read on Lisa Souza's http://www.lisaknit.com blog that she is going to have a booth there.

Okay so I'm very new to this...tell me about Stitches South. I heard about Stitches Midwest and it sounded awesome. Can anyone just go and pay the daily entry fee to walk the booths or do you have to pay the $500+ for all the classes and such?

I will probably be in Hot-lanta during that time for something else and would love to plan a day for it.

From what Ruth at Main Street Yarns in Watkinsville told me, there should be no admission fee (or if there is, a minimal one). They (MSY) are chartering a bus from the store and for $20 you can ride with Ruth and staff. Call Main Street Yarns in Watkinsville, GA and ask for Ruth--she'll tell you all you need to know.

I've attended Stitches East 2007 and Stitches Midwest 2008. I purchased tickets ahead of time and it saves a few dollars. For Midwest the ticket was $12. If you purchase at the door it cost a few more dollars. I believe for $14 you could get in for two days. (someone correct me if I'm wrong...it has been a few weeks and I had more important things on my mind instead of the price of a ticket...like YARN!! lol) You can come and go for the day with a stamp on your hand. I'd highly recommend nice comfy shoes, one bag such as a back pack or one on wheels and water. The water at the events is around $3 per bottle. A bit pricey!! I plan on attending Stitches South. I wish it was more centrally located instead of Atlanta. Dallas would be better for those of us in the middle of the country. Just my 2 cents. :-)

Thanks for the info. I won't have a lot of time to attend the classes etc. I just wanted to browse the market for a couple of hours, if I can fit it in. Did I read it correctly, that it is $40 to do that?

I've been knitting for a couple of years, but Stitches South is new to me. Are there venders and classes? What exactly could I expect?

Stitches South is just a new location for this year for the consumer knitting shows sponsored by Knitting Universe. There are classes and vendors and shopping. Check out the link in my previous post for more information. They have lots of info on their web-site regarding admission, location, classes, vendors, hotels, etc.

Yes - it is true! Stitches South in Atlanta, GA - a new location. I have been a member of The Atlanta Knitting Guild for years and I am really excited about it being held here in Atlanta. I have been to only one other that was in PA - I think. I have already signed up for a class - did that a long time ago and reserved a hotel room for one night, because you know I don't have the "energy" like I use too. The Atlanta Knitting Guild is going to have their own booth there and I believe they are making the center peices - knitted of course! I have not seen them - because I don't go to the meetings that often - it is that "energy" thing again, but I have read about them in our newsletter and they sound wonderful! Very creative! If you don't have the time or money to take a class - you can just go shopping in the market. I can't remember how much, but it might be somewhere around $10.00 - $15.00 and if you received a brochure in the mail - they had a coupon where you can get $2.00 off.

cool!

I've only been to Stitches West but no, one does not have to take a class to get in. However, if you do take a class, that gets you into the Friday night preview (before the mobs of public Saturday). Many wonderful classes but heavens! they are expen$ive.

Warning to Knit for Keeps -- you will not be able to just spend a couple of hours. Best plan on the day. All day.
