Our selection committee, who have the difficult job of narrowing down the applicants to fit our space.

Everyone who brought FOs for the 500 Hats Project and yarn for Knitters & Crocheters Care, and everyone who stopped by the charity tables to work a few rows on our scarves and hats.

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

Please share your photos on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Ravelry with #homespunyarnparty

We have one lost and found item returned to us (a heart earring left at a vendor booth) - if this is yours please get in touch with us and we'll pop it in the mail.

We also had a size 3 16" circular needle left at one of the social tables. If you happened to pick this up accidentally please let us know and we'll arrange to get it back to its owner.

-Jess, Lindsay, Corrine, and Paula
