Dear friends,

Over the course of twenty years, we’ve set out on adventures when we wished for something that didn’t exist. This has resulted in a blog, two big books, a daily website, 28 little books, an online shop, a retreat, workshops, and virtual events.

Today, we’re announcing the thing we’ve wanted to do for the longest time.

A gathering of knitters in Nashville.

We’re calling it Nash Yarn Fest, and it’s coming next year.

March 14 and 15, 2025.

We just cooked up the Nash Yarn Fest website, the place to watch as it all comes together.


Nash Yarn Fest will be a time to celebrate everything we love about the knitting world.

You’ll have the chance to learn, to shop, to be entertained.

To make new friends and to reunite with dear ones.

We’ll start the fun on Friday night, March 14, and go all day on Saturday the 15th.

The place? The Fairgrounds Nashville, in a new, state-of-the-art, fully accessible space, 50,000 square feet.

Amusements and surprises are afoot, classes are being created, and vendors are signing on. More than anything, Nash Yarn Fest is going to be a party for the ages.

We’ll keep you posted on Nash Yarn Fest as it develops—subscribe to our Nash Yarn Fest newsletter here for updates and announcements of classes and ticket sales.

Want to join us as a vendor? Here’s the information.

Want to teach? Please write us. We have space for a limited number of classes.

Want to be a sponsor of this inaugural event? We’d love to talk—please be in touch.

Want to come? We’ll let you know ahead of time when tickets and workshop registration will be available—sign up here.

If you’ve wanted to visit Nashville, this is your message from the universe to join us. We can’t wait to welcome you!
