The Knitting Universe presents Stitches West 2013

January 28, 2013 by  

Stitches West 2013 is coming up in about four weeks at the Santa Clara Convention Center and the Hyatt Regency. The yearly event attracts thousands of people who knit and crochet, as well as beginners just entering the world of fiber crafting.

The conference will present keynote speakers, workshops, exhibitions, and networking opportunities. The Stitches Market will bring vendors and attendees together to explore the many different tools and products available for utilization in their handicrafts. Many demonstrations will take place throughout the conference, along with book signings from well-known experts in the field.

If the thought of the Stitches West conference is a bit overwhelming for beginners, the Stitches Etc program following the conference may be more suitable. Individuals will be paired with select teachers for two days in a relaxed setting with a single topic focus to be covered in depth, rather than the broad realm presented at the larger conference.

Various registration options are available through the organization’s website. All registration levels include free events, classes, entry to the Stitches Market, and a PJ party on the Friday.

Conferences of this size generally call upon local print services to provide materials needed to advertise and organize the event. In addition to many forms used throughout the event, signage is an important component. Vendors and event managers utilize banner printing to produce banners to place strategically throughout the venue to direct foot traffic, as well as to ensure the vendor companies are displayed.

Stitches West 2013 is scheduled for February 22 – 24. For registration or more information, visit the Knitting Universe website.
