We are excited to return to Sacramento for Stitches West. This event offers top-notch education with 23 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 87 classes includes a variety of fiber arts. In addition to knitting, crochet, and weaving, you will find sewing, quilting, embroidery, spinning, carding, and more. Options abound!
Stitches West 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.
Sacramento is America’s Farm-to-Fork Capital and the only star on the map of California. The city is buzzing with things to taste, see, and savor. We invite you to pick your pleasure, whether it’s our farm-fresh restaurants, plentiful farmers markets, home-grown breweries, colorful street murals, Gold Rush-era family attractions, or a sunset walk along the river. The recently expanded and renovated SAFE Credit Union Convention Center is a dynamic center for conventions, meetings, and cultural experiences.
We look forward to seeing you in Sacramento!

Stitches West in Sacramento was great! It was our first show back after COVID, and I was pleasantly surprised. It wasn’t the biggest show Neighborhood Fiber Co.has ever done. But I think it was just right… the balance between the number of vendors and the number of shoppers. The Stitches crew did their jobs. It was a wonderful experience. And we made money at the show.
