We are excited to return to Pasadena for Stitches SoCal. This event offers top-knotch education with 31 of the best instructors in the industry, the Stitches Fashion Show, the Stitches Makers’ Showcase, and other fun ways for the community to connect.
The schedule of 104 classes includes a variety of fiber arts. In addition to knitting, crochet, and weaving, you will find sewing, quilting, embroidery, spinning, carding, dyeing, and more. Options abound!
Stitches SoCal will feature a dazzling Market full of inspiration for fiber artists of all kinds. You will find everything from yarn, fiber, and fabric to notions and tools that will tempt every Maker and make your creative dreams come true.
The Pasadena Convention Center is the premier meeting and events venue in the heart of Pasadena. The Civic Center district boasts a wide variety of restaurants all within walking distance of the hotels and Convention Center.
We look forward to seeing you in Pasadena!
