A splendid time was had by all.
The KWKG Knitter’s Fair is a highlight of the calendar for knitters around Ontario. Amy and I were there, for a little shopping, a little socializing, and to do a little good.
The shopping was fabulous:
We sold out of our limited edition Knitty 10th Anniversary project bags – the famous Ninja Bunny bag. [Really. They’re all gone. Sorry.]
50% of the proceeds raised on Saturday from the sale of these bags are going to the Canadian Breast Cancer Support Fund. We’re proud to support this organization — they’re quite unlike other cancer-related charities. CBCSF funds go directly to those affected by cancer: the organizationÂ provides short-term financial assistance to breast cancer patients who are facing financial difficulties while they are undergoing treatment. If a patient needs help covering rent, paying for food or childcare, the CBCSF is there to help.
Featured speaker Stephanie Pearl McPhee, the Yarn Harlot, drew the crowds, as always, to her fun and enlightening presentation!
Everyone was wearing their finest knitwear.
… including Isa’s lovely Tempest cardi.
And friend of Knitty Kim of indigodragonfly introduced us to her two newest employees…
