This Weekend in California
The Knitting Guild Association's huge national conference, aka the Knit and Crochet Show, takes place this weekend at the Oakland Marriott City Center just across the bay from San Francisco. The event features classes and a huge marketplace as well as a fashion show and silent auction on Saturday evening to benefit the Helping Hands Foundation.
