Description of the KIP

A fun all-day, inclusive family-oriented event with well-known speakers, local vendors, free knitting lessons, and lots of items on display.

We will be treating our speakers to lunch at Marco Polo Global Restaurant and folks are welcome to join us there at 12:30. Hope to have you join us!

    Are folks who Crochet welcome to attend, or is this strictly for knitters?

    Crocheters are indeed welcome! I will edit that line and I apologize for the error.

    I sure hope to come. It’ll be just 2 or 3 days before I move to the coast. I probably won’t be able to see the whole event though because I volunteer in circulation on Saturdays. My shift starts at 3. I find it interesting how you are keeping the speakers a total mystery.
