11th Annual Thank You Post

Thank you for another great Yarn Party!


We had a really great time today and want to thank everyone who came and participated. We had around 650 visitors this year and appreciated the steady stream of arrivals throughout the day.


Our generous sponsors:


Tier 1 sponsors:
Tier 2 sponsors:


Our talented vendors:
All of our vendors make their own products in some way, whether that means raising the animals, dyeing the fiber, spinning the yarn, or crafting bags, jewelry, woodworking, or buttons by hand in small batches. You can find profiles of each of the vendors  here on the blog.
(double thanks to those of you who also provided a volunteer door prize)

Our wonderful volunteers:
We couldn’t do this without you and truly appreciate all your hard work helping spread the word and ensuring everything comes together on the day of show.

And everyone who came to shop and socialize and learn and be awesome together!

Today's the day!

Come party with us!
Here's a round up of information about this year's event:

Where: Historic Savage Mill - 8600 Foundry Street, Savage, MD 20763
When: Sunday, March 18, 2018 from 12-5pm
Admission is FREE!


 


Carpool if you can and come later in the day to avoid the crowds. We promise there will still be great yarn, fiber, prizes and other treasures. We recommend parking in the West lot (at the far end of the mill), and you can usually find street parking in the neighborhood within a few streets.


We're excited and we hope you are too. See you soon!
