We put a call out to our vendors a while ago to find out what special goodies they were bringing to the Yarnporium so that we could share them all with you in a series of blog posts leading up to the event.
Our friends at Pom Pom Quarterly got back to us with news that in addition to having the samples from their latest issue, they will also be hosting a couple of designer visits on their stand. We're very excited to help them share their news that both Stephen West of WestKnits and Justyna Lorkowska of Lete's Knits will be doing meet and greets and signing books and patterns!
Justyna will be on the stand from 11am to 1pm on the Saturday and signing copies of the latest issue of Pom Pom Quarterly, featuring her stunning new sweater design Tallat. Tallat is a glamorous winter knit whipped up quickly in a chunky yarn.
If you're planning your shopping list already, you'll need between 900 and 1,500 metres of chunky yarn, depending on your size. We think this would be a great woolly knit for Wovember!
Following on from Justyna's signing, Stephen West will be on the PPQ stand from 1-3pm on Saturday, and again from 12-2pm on Sunday signing copies of his latest book, WestKnits BestKnits Number 1 - Shawls.
Filled with 13 of Stephen's favourite shawl designs from the last three years, WestKnits BestKnits Number 1 - Shawls includes last year's mystery knitalong shawl The Doodler.
We're incredibly excited to welcome both Justyna and Stephen to the Yarnporium and hope you'll make plans to stop by the Pom Pom Quarterly stand to say hello!
(And if you fancy expanding your own brioche skills there are a handful of spaces still available in Renée Callahan's Brioche Next Steps workshop on Sunday!)
