Good Water and Co is a RETURNING vendor!
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.

Unique Sapphire Fibre Studio is a RETURNING vendor!
I believe if something your doing fuels your passion, while giving you a great sense of happiness and pride, then it’s worth doing and sharing with the world. That’s exactly why I’m here sharing with you, my art. Each batch is meticulously hand dyed or painted in small batches to ensure quality and consistency in each colorway. The colorways I create are inspired by everything I encounter in life.
Tempting Ewe Yarns is a NEW vendor!
Two women, two dyers, one yarn company. Wae and Amanda’s dyeing styles and color choices vary enough that their dyed yarns appeal to a variety of customers. Although Wae enjoys dyeing deep and saturated colors and Amanda’s colors tend toward the lighter side, both have also been known to create colors that leave customers guessing whose dye baby they’ve fallen in love with.
SpaceCadet is a RETURNING vendor!
At SpaceCadet, we start with luxury fibers — merino wool, silk, linen, and bamboo — and then take the time to mix every dyebath by hand from primary colours, meaning every colourway is created using only five basic shades of dye, resulting in hand-dyed yarns and fiber that are a truly unique connection between the dyer and knitter or crocheter. It takes longer to dye this way, to be sure, but it allows us and our customers to immerse ourselves in colour exploration in a way that is worth all the extra effort!
Our colourways are all designed to work together, creating collections of semi-solids and variegateds that we mix and match with our customers right in our booth and which we use to create our gradient Sweater Sets that are designed to be easy to size up or down on the spot. And our constant experimentation with colour leads to lots of amazing one-of-a-kind yarns and mini-skeins that our customers love to pour through at shows.
Started as a one-woman operation in 2010, we have grown to a small team with a passionate, driving belief is that knitting and crocheting make people happier, deep down inside, and that nothing does that more than working with gorgeous, vibrant yarn. For us, dyeing is a cosmic adventure, one that allows us to follow our passion, share it with customers who feel the same, and to get to know them (and their beautiful FOs!) personally.
Fibernymph Dye Works is a RETURNING vendor!
I’m an indie yarn and fiber dyer who is heading into my eighth year of business. I specialize in creating self-striping yarns in a number of yarn weights for a wide variety of projects. Alone or paired with my semi-solids or variegates, they’re always fun to work with.
Yarn and pattern kits have become a customer favorite at shows. I bring an assortment, featuring my yarn and my own knitwear designs as well as those of other indie designers with whom I periodically collaborate.
In January 2019, I’m excited to be debuting a custom milled line of Romney/Falkland blend non-superwash yarns. In both fingering and DK, it’ll be perfect for color work, and I can’t wait to bring it to my shows next year!
