This year our vendors have less time to set up so we really need your help! Please apply to volunteer by emailing email@example.com with the subject: I WANT TO HELP!
As extra incentive (in case the eternal gratitude of our vendors is not enough) we are now offering some special gifts for our volunteers:
- Setup (6:45am-10am): A skein or braid hand dyed by Hipstrings with the special IKS colorway and also skip the line! Shop when the vendors are ready. 10 volunteers needed for this time.
- Teardown (5pm-7pm): Another skein or braid hand dyed by Hipstrings with the special IKS colorway. 6 volunteers needed for this time.
- From 10am-5pm we are giving gifts based on hours worked
- 1 hr – IKS button
- 2 hrs – IKS vinyl sticker
- 3 hrs – IKS tote bag
Let us know as soon as possible because the slots are filling up fast!

Steel City Stitcher
Purveyor of hand dyed yarns and fiber. I especially love to dye anything with silk and all skeins are one of a kind creations.
Established in 2010, Oink Pigments is a purveyor of small-batch, hand-dyed yarns in Vista, CA and Indianapolis, IN. Our team (Alexa, Helena, and Julie) is a trio of strong-willed women who love pigs, puns, and purls (and parentheses). We offer 18 different yarn and fiber offerings in over 100 bright and playful colorways, and a whopping 12 of these 18 bases are 100% USA made from sheep to shelf (yes, even the sheep are Americans).
Indie dyed yarn and fiber inspired by the whimsical fun of childhood and make believe to inspire knitters, crocheters, weavers, and spinners. All on yarn and fiber as unique as the stories that inspire the colors. Hand made shawl pins and stitch marker, project journals, and fun whimsical kits add to the fun!
Fairy Tale Knits
Good Water and Co. was born out of frustration. As a knitter frequenting public transit on trips into and out of New York City, I struggled to find a bag that would keep my yarn neat, my notions accessible, and my projects safe — while still keeping all of those other real life essentials, like my phone, wallet, and keys, close at hand.
I went through bag after bag, but nothing quite worked.
Finally, I hit my limit. I grabbed some fabric, some batting, and a pair of scissors, determined to make a bag that fit my needs.
What emerged was this: a bag made from 100% quilters grade cotton, quilted and lined with stiff interfacing for stability partnered with a removable insert featuring detachable, freestanding, yarn boxes with a grommet on top to keep things flowing smoothly. An interior pocket held my keys and wallet. Even with everything packed in, I could still find it all — and pack my project in safely.
I had a winner.
Good Water and Co. bags are designed to meet the needs of busy knitters, knitters who sneak in stitches on trains, planes, and automobiles; for knitters who like to keep things neat and tidy, who love the idea of a knitting bag, but hate the mess; for knitters who need a bag as diverse as their craft.
