I have attended twice, stayed

I have attended twice, stayed on site. Classes are expensive though I have enjoyed and learned from both. The marketplace is huge, first year never saw the entire event. Second year took a map wrote notes that way I would find a vendor I liked. Easy to spend a lot of money. I would buy take up to the room till the corner filled and I had to cart everything down to the car.

Stitches West is great

Stitches West is great fun!
The classes fill up fast and are expensive...but the vendor marketplace is HUGE!
It,s a wonderful place to see the newest yarns, tools and books...

This is an annual event. It

This is an annual event. It also takes place in several other regions of the U.S. I've not attended this one. However, I attended one very similar in Portland about 10 years ago. Since you're in the Bay Area, you should go. If not for the classes/seminars, you can visit the Market Place. Lot's of vendors....yarns .... watch your pocket book!!! Check out their website for more information.
