The Fiberists Present: Public Knitoxication


Virtual Public Knitoxication Flyer

We are proud to bring you a very special Virtual Public Knitoxication!

Instead of the in person event we have held the past two years, this year we will be bringing together some of our great friends and fellow vendors for an online virtual day of knitting (and crochet), wine, snacks, yarn and fiber shopping; all from the comfort and safety of your own home.

There will be a live-stream on Saturday, June 20, 2020 from Noon until 6:00 PM Eastern (9:00 AM - 3:00 PM Pacific) and it will feature some of our vendors as well as special guests. We are proud to be able to have Cecilia Nelson-Hurst start the day off with a conversation about diversity, inclusion and anti-racism and the fiber community. The Live stream can be found on YouTube or on our Facebook page. There will be no cost to attend the live-stream.

The schedule for the live stream is: (times shown are Eastern Time)

As a part of this event, we along with some of our vendors will be conducting fundraising efforts. Together, some of us will be pooling our contributions to make a larger lump sum donation to the new NFC Momentum Fund. Below is the list of participating the vendors including any fundraising efforts they will be making and/or any specials they are offering. All vendor specials requiring a code will use the same COUPON CODE: VPK2020.
