Last night the Dyeworks played host to the Yarn Market News Conference. The attendees arrived in Portland over the weekend. They attended workshops that help yarn store owners grow a more successful business. Based on some of the tweets from Erin I'm a little jealous I didn't attend! On Tuesday, after the morning session, everyone was invited on a yarn crawl around Portland. They didn't hit all the shops, but a great spread was represented.
At the end of that journey, they headed out to the Dyeworks for a closing cocktail party. We hosted almost every knit wear designer here in Portland. And wow is this a talented city! Food and drink was prepared by Gino's and so yummy.
The evening was a great way to connect with yarn stores from all over the US and Canada in a more intimate setting. Also a wonderful opportunity for us to spotlight the Dyeworks and where the magic all happens!
Many thanks to Stevanie and all her hard work making magic. Thanks to all the designers as well, a great night with all of you! And of course, thank you to Yarn Market News for bringing a fabulous event to Portland.
