Knit and Crochet Fall show

The Knit and Crochet fall show 2008 sponsored by Crochet Guild of America CGOA and The Knitting Guild Association TKGA is happening now at the Oregon Convention Center.

I visited the vender booths yesterday. Lace knitting is popular this year. There were lots of yarns, needles, examples and instructions for lace knitting. I was very impressed by the examples that I saw, especially the lace knit doilies.

Stop by Teresa Ruch’s booth. She does beautiful hand dyed yarns. She uses many different fibers from rayon, tencel to bamboo.

Save the Children has a booth. They are running a campaign called Knit one, save one, to promote knitting and crochet hats for babies. Pick up a brochure with instructions at the Save the Children booth. They request that the hats be made from any yarn but wool. Use up your non wool bits of yarn.

At the many vender booths I found lots of pretty yarns to choose from to add to my stash.

Shopping hours 10am to 6 pm Saturday September 13, 2008 and 10 am to 3 pm Sunday September 14, 2008. Ten dollar admission. Two dollars off discount tickets available on their web page.

Oregon Convention Center, 777 NE Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard in Portland. On the Max line.
