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