Stitches Midwest: My First Time

Stitches Midwest: My First Time

When I first heard of Stitches Midwest I had no idea what it was and although it interested me, I initially didn’t pay much attention to it and it wasn’t on my radar to attend. Little by little, more information popped up on my News Feed and each bit of information provided me with a more comprehensive idea of what Stitches would be. The more I knew, the more I was intrigued. Soon, I could not get enough of what this show was going to be about. I became more excited the more I learned about it. My mind was made up! I was going to be there this year!

Let’s do it!

It didn’t take much to convince my mom to go along because the two of us are always tag teaming these events, but soon after talking about it with Nate, he said he could maybe take a vacation day on Friday and go with us. My dad was on board too! We decided to make an entire weekend out of it and since it was in Chicago, there was so much we could do!

We left Wisconsin and headed down to Illinois on Friday morning. We had reserved a room right near the convention center so we were only a hop, skip, and a jump away from the event. It was about a 5 hour drive but we broke it up with a little sight-seeing and a stop for lunch. Before we knew it, we were pulling into our hotel and things were about to get real!

We walked into the lobby and the first thing we saw were groups of ladies knitting and crocheting! Just witnessing those sharing the craft had my excitement building! We checked in and first thing we did was to head over to the convention center to make sure we had our reservations for the events in place.

What happens here, stays here!

As soon as we walked into the convention center at the Renaissance Convention Center and Hotel the atmosphere was electric with the excitement from all the fiber loving community! I could not wait to attend all of it! First thing’s first, we got our reservations confirmed. Friday night was the Pajama Party, Saturday: the Trade Show, Saturday afternoon: a Crochet Class with The Marly Bird! We were all set!

We decided to spend the few hours before the Pajama Party grabbing some dinner and doing some shopping. Well, being in Chicago it is NO SECRET that my favorite place to be is on Devon Avenue! Sabri Nihari, HERE we come!! Sabri Nihari is my FAVORITE restaurant for authentic Pakistani Cuisine. After a fabulous dinner of Chicken Makhani and garlic naan, topped off with a mango lassi, we were ready to head back to the convention center to attend my very first Stitches Midwest Pajama Party!

If you have NEVER attended one of these events, you are missing out! I never knew what I was missing until I went and saw for myself! I have to say there is NOTHING like a Pajama Party hosted by a yarn loving community. Before I go further I have to say that I HIGHLY recommend you going to one of these events near you! Be sure to take along your project bag and an adventurous spirit! There is a rule: What goes on at the pajama party, STAYS at the pajama party! This means you will have to attend one in the future to see all the fun of what goes on at one of these crazy parties! And by crazy, I mean, “you will never forget how much fun it is” crazy! It was a BLAST!! Nate and I went and of course we dressed in matching pj’s because..well we are that couple!

I’m such a fan-girl!

One of the highlights of the weekend was meeting Marly Bird! I was so excited to finally connect with her in person and meet face to face! She is as warm and bubbly off screen as she is on screen! She couldn’t be more welcoming and friendly and it felt like I have known her for longer than the few minutes it took for our initial real-life introduction! I had a fan-girl moment, too! I mean come on, it is The Marly Bird!!! Squeee!!!!

Holy Yarn Balls, Batman!

On Saturday, we planned to head over to the convention early on in the day with a late plan to meet Marly for lunch. So off we went to the trade show and OH MY GOSH! I was overwhelmed by the enormity of this event! It literally took my breath away! I walked into the convention hall and had to take a few deep breaths. It was YARN HEAVEN!!! As far as the eye could see, it was everything yarn! *Insert a wide-eyed Nadia with drool coming down her chin* For real though, it was unimaginable for lil’ ol’ me who comes from a small town where the most yarn in one place is at the local JoAnn’s or local yarn shop. It was crazyyyy!

As I started to make my way down the aisles, there were certain booths I wanted to make sure I made a stop at. However, it was easy to get pulled into all the beautiful booths that were bursting with color and fiber! Demonstrations were taking place that were alluring as well! Spinning, weaving, and other crafts were being shown all day! I was taken by all of it! Along the way, I found so many treasures! I bought an Erin Lane Bag and found some amazing Leon Alexander Yarn! Nate gifted me a pair of socks with sheep all over them too!

Always an education!

Around noon, we met Marly for lunch and enjoyed a little down time while we got to know one another. I was excited to share our love for the craft and a few laughs about the party the night before. It was a nice way to decompress from the overwhelming feeling of being in overdrive from the proverbial YARN-utopia I just came from inside the convention center! Shortly following lunch, she was instructing a class that I attended: Crocheting with Beads. I rarely crochet with beads, but her class made it easy to follow and I am sure I will be using this technique in future projects. I left with such a positive feeling of friendship and look forward to more events together!

 

 

Special Thanks!

Once the class was finished, we did a quick once over at the show to make sure there wasn’t anything I missed, and from there we headed home. It was a fun-filled jam packed couple of days, and by the end I was exhausted. Nate and I curled up in the back seat of the car and fell asleep for the ride home, me dreaming of all the beautiful things I was going to make with my new yarn and Nate dreaming of ways to find room in the house to keep it all! Haha! Just kidding, he was probably dreaming of getting home to have a beer because he spent two days immersed in all things yarn, attended a pajama party in matching pajamas and all the while his wife dragged him around 500,000 square feet of fiber arts! That’s what true love is, folks!

Anyway, it was a great weekend all the way around, and one I will not soon forget. Until next year! A special thanks to Stitches Midwest for hosting such a phenomenal event and to Marly Bird and Lindsey from Erin Lane Bags for being such entertaining emcees for the Friday event.

Thank you to Red Heart Yarns for providing the prize yarn that was part of the Pajama Party giveaway, as well as Stunning String Studio for the wonderful set of hooks, and Crafty Flutterby Creations for the beautiful shawl clasp. These few items will be a part of a future giveaway here on YARNutopia!


To all the fabulous vendors who made my very first Stitches event so memorable, thank you so much. I will never forget all the fun I had. Thanks for the memories!

Crochet Tutorial: Arrows and Fringe Boho Fashion Scarf

Crochet Tutorial: Arrows and Fringe Boho Fashion Scarf

When you think of boho-style fashion, what comes to mind? Most people might immediately think of bare feet with bell bottom jeans and funky headbands. Although one can incorporate those two fashion pieces tastefully into a modern boho outfit, things have come a long way in modern times! Yes, we draw inspiration from the early era of the flower child and beatnik, as those fashion concepts from the 1960s have inspired the modern spin on today’s boho-fashion trends, today we have added a new flair to this look.

Crochet has long been a part of the boho scene. My Arrows and Fringe Boho Fashion Scarf takes this old idea and brings it to new life! Arrows and Fringe are all the rage in this latest fashion arena and I have them both in this one fabulous piece! You can make this scarf very easily, just in time for the cold days ahead. It will stop people in their tracks with the bold and beautiful look that this scarf flaunts!

I used the delicious Chic Sheep Yarn by The Marly Bird! As part of her Designer Blog Tour, I jumped at the chance to use more of this amazing Merino wool fiber. I know what you are thinking. “Red Heart Yarns cannot simply have a desirable wool yarn that is soft and worthy of high end pieces”. STOP.RIGHT.THERE. Back ‘er up! Erase those thoughts immediately! Haha! I am here to tell you that you cannot go wrong with this luxurious fiber! It is drool worthy! Don’t take my word for it?? Order a skein on redheart.com or go over to your nearest Hobby Lobby stores and go feel for yourself! You won’t believe the magic at your fingertips! Come on, do it! We all know you like to squeeze that yarn! (Confession: My name is Nadia and I am a yarn squeezer. There, I admit it! That wasn’t so hard.)

 

Chic Sheep Yarn has fast become a favorite go-to for some of my nicer fashion pieces for myself and for the home! I used this in my Colorful Visions Afghan and trust me, there is not another piece that has equaled the amount of swooning that my friends and family have done as they have on this afghan! It is one of those blankets so comfy, you want to curl underneath and momentarily forget the world…in fact I might have done that a time or two…or three. I also made the Winter Chic Slippers with this yarn, and let me tell you, those are some of the most comfortable slippers I have ever worn!

I had the joy of meeting Marly Bird at Stitches Midwest, and it truly was a highlight of that weekend. Finally meeting her and getting to know her has been such a thrill. I can tell you that she puts so much love and enthusiasm into everything she does that her brand is no exception. Her color choices are eye-popping, the softness is fantastic, and her product is comparable to other brands that can run three times the price!

So now that you are convinced, go grab your Chic Sheep Yarn today and join me on making the Arrows and Fringe Boho Fashion Scarf!

Crochet Tutorial: Bookmark with a Ribbon

Crochet Tutorial: Bookmark with a Ribbon
My mom has a bookmark exchange in her book club and asked me to make a few bookmarks, everybody wins in this case because I made this bookmark and filmed a video tutorial with my dad! Mark your pages in elegant style with this bookmark. No more dog-eared pages, using an old receipt or torn piece of paper to save your spot in your favorite book. Every time you open your book get greeted with this lovely piece that helps find your page and makes reading more fun!

 

Watch this video tutorial to learn how to make this bookmark:

My dad will continue to be the videographer, editor, and photographer for our videos when I move away.
Support YARNutopia today so we can continue to bring you clear, quality crochet tutorials even after I move into my new home!
There will be an added expense of more travel and hopefully this won’t deter our ability to provide consistent videos on a weekly basis.
