Call for volunteers!

Hello everyone and thank you for your previous and current interest in helping out at IKS. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again because it is true: our show is great because of you! Every year we have tons of comments from our vendors on how great you are and how this is the smoothest show they have ever been to. Let’s keep it going!

Our volunteers help vendors with setup and breakdown, assist attendees and earn fabulous thank you gifts such as hand dyed yarn and/or fiber, buttons, stickers, or totes.

In order to help me organize the volunteers this time around I would like you all to fill out the following form:

Sign up Here!

Please fill the form out before November 1st. Also note that this time we have divided up the day into 4 shifts. We want you all to have fun so please limit yourself to volunteering for no more than 3 shifts.

Please let me know if you have any questions and thank you again for your help.

Vendors for Fall 2019

The Fall 2019 Indie Knit and Spin will occur at the Ace Hotel on Sunday, November 17th 2019 from 11 am to 5 pm

Indie Knit & Spin is a very competitive marketplace and there are only 25 slots available.  We are looking for vendors that put their heart and soul into the items they create and sell, and represent the diversity of people and interests in the fiber arts  – shepherds and shepherdesses, dyers, designers, artisans, craftspeople and more.  Our attendees are makers themselves interested in knitting, crochet, spinning, felting, handweaving and represent a diverse community of fiber enthusiasts in the Pittsburgh region and beyond.

If this seems like an appropriate fit for your business, apply to be a vendor here

Applications will be open until June 30th 2019 and we will notify vendors of their status by July 7th, 2019
