Vendor Night

Linda, Marianne & Daniella

Vendor Night at the September Guild Meeting was a smashing success thanks to all the fabulous Vendors and the Stockinette shoppers!

President Lizette Hopkins breezed through the business portion of the meeting reminding all the Stockinettes that "there is shopping to do"!

As for official business, Amy Singer from is coming in November. Mark your calendar! Amy will be a special guest and speaker at the November Guild Meeting on Thursday, November 4, 2010. Sign ups for Amy's Modular Lace classes will take place at the October meeting.

Now for some shopping are some photos from Vendor Night!

Designer Yarn Bowl

Vice President Cindi Unmack invited Auburn studio potter Marianne DeMartini to be a Vendor. She is coincidentally also member Daniella Z.'s friend! Marianne makes beautiful handmade pottery. Her beautiful Yarn Bowls were the hit of the night!

You can see her work in the First Saturday Open Studio in Auburn or in her Etsy Shop Adventures in Clay.

Cindi & Betsy

A real treat of the night was the booth where Stockinettes Cindi Unmack of Left Coast Yarns & Betsy Coyne of Cultured Purl combined forces.

Betsy & Cindi collaborated together on a lace scarf kit inspired by camellias, in honor of the Camellia City Stockinettes. Cindi dyed a special edition of her fingering weight yarn in a pretty camellia colorway.

Michele & Sheila

Members Michele & Sheila were returning Vendors and had their fabulous fabric hanging circular needle holders and clever needle roll-up holders to store your dpns. What a wonderful product to organize all your knitting needles!

This year they also sold vintage needlework magazines.
What a treat to step back in time (1914-1943) with Needlecraft, Ladies Home Journal Companion and American Needlewoman magazines from that era!

Julia & Fig Tree Alley

New business member Julia from Fig Tree Alley had a booth, too.

You could tell from her professional display that she has done craft shows before.

Her hand-made buttons were a big hit for all the knitters. Her sheep buttons were just adorable!

Linda Greene

Multi talented member Linda Greene had a booth,too. She is one talented needlework lady. She knits, crochets and does beautiful embroidery work. Her booth had a very lovely vintage display and nice array of one-of-a-kind handmade items. Notice how nicely she coordinated her outfit to match her booth!

What a Night!

With all the shopping fun it was obvious everyone had a wonderful time at Vendor Night. Member Annemieke Y. summed it up best with her recent post on the Stockinette Ravelry Group:

"This was my first vendor night and I thought it was awesome. All the vendors were very unique and I thought there was something for everyone. I myself may have made a purchase or two."

Thank you to all the Vendors and Stockinette Shoppers for making Vendor Night a smashing success!

Feel free to contact the Vendors directly if you would like to make additional purchases!
