It's a totally FREE event!

 

* Goodie bags for first 50 arrivals
  Last year we offered a bag to the first 50 folks to pre-register, which caused some confusion and miscommunication. This year we've decided to go the simple route - FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED.
   
* Door prizes
  Give-aways will take place throughout the event. To ensure that you win the prizes you love best, you'll receive a handful of tickets as you arrive. These can be allocated towards several prizes, or use them all for something special for a higher chance to win.
   
* Sit & stitch
  It's KNIT IN PUBLIC, y'all! That means bring a project to work on :) Although the focus for this event is strongly on knitting and crocheting, all fiber artists, makers and lovers will be welcomed into the fold with open arms. Enjoy a wonderful few hours with like minded people and make new friends.
   
* Fashion show: enter something you've made
  Brand new this year and we hope it will become a favorite. Have something you want to show off? Parade it down the runway! Or if you're shy, have someone wear it on your behalf. This fashion show will be totally amateur and we hope it will draw entries from all genders, shapes, and sizes. Even pets! We still have some wrinkles to iron out to ensure this runs smoothly, but we'll release the details and entry forms as soon as we can.

   
* New official event swag for 2018
  Last year's t-shirts featuring the art of Roo Kline were a big hit. This year's art has been completed and will be available on t-shirts, tote bags, pin on buttons, mugs, prints, and more!

T-shirts & Tote bags
We have partnered with GREEN PEA PRESS for our official vintage-wash event t-shirts. Green Pea is taking advance orders and will deliver the t-shirts for pickup at the event, or ship your order directly to you.

   
   
* Vendors
  A very small number of vendors (by invitation only) will be at the event. They accept cash and credit cards.

* Hand lettered name badge for pre-registered attendees
  If you pre-register on or before 2 June 2018, you'll receive a WWKIP 2018 name badge (on a lanyard) featuring this year's art, with your name hand lettered by Roo.
