The Yarn Harlot posted a blog entry last month about the Sock Summit 2009, an amazing sock knitting event that will take place August 6-9, 2009, in Portland, Oregon. Sort of an intensive weekend institute on socks, with workshops, lectures, exhibits, and, of course, vendors. I sent a note via the comments that I hoped they would have discounted table rates for small dyers like me, and I actually got a reply! Now for those of you who don’t follow her blog, Stephanie, AKA The Yarn Harlot, typically gets two hundred to five hundred comments on each post, so a reply is something to treasure. And she said that they are working hard to make it possible for indie dyers to be there and they really want us. Whee!
If a Sock Summit is of any possible interest to you, do sign up to get more information as it becomes available. I think it’ll be pretty amazing, and I really, really hope to be there.
