IKS Happy Hours!

Introducing the IKS Happy Hours!  For the last two hours of IKS, from 3-5pm, we invite you to bring a bag and get little treats from all the vendors.  Discount codes, micro skeins, stitch markers, and more!  Who knows what goodies you will find!  The Ace Hotel also joins in on the fun with a cash bar just inside the doors.

Each vendor only has 25 items so don’t be shy, come on by!  Please limit one item from each vendor per attendee.

Calling Volunteers!

This year our vendors have less time to set up so we really need your help!  Please apply to volunteer by emailing indieknitandspin@gmail.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!

Oink Pigments


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).
