Accepting Applications for Fall 2018 IKS

We have secured the contract for the next event and the wait is finally over!  The Fall 2018 Indie Knit and Spin will occur at the Ace Hotel on Sunday, November 11th from 11am to 5pm.

A couple of key changes:
– Due to increased expenses we have had to increase our booth costs to $75 for an 8’x8′ booth and $110 for a 10’x10′.  Thankfully, since our Spring show brought in over 700 attendees we hope you will find the fees are still reasonable.
– Additionally we will no longer be able to offer early setup on the night before so we are giving you 4 hours on Sunday morning to set up (7am-11am).
Just like last time we are asking everyone to apply through the following form:
Applications are open until June 30th and selections will be made by July 15th.
Thank you for your interest and please feel free to let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
Nik Duarte, IKS Chair

Good Water & Co.

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.
