With much excitement, Yarn Group asks you to participate in our newest initiative the Yarn Café!
Designed to meet the need of both buyers and exhibitors, The Yarn Café sits on the show floor at the top of aisle 900. In the Cafe, attendees will sit and knit a bit with your yarns — and then come to your booth to buy! Each table in the café will host a Yarn Tasting of YOUR product! Exhibitors can sponsor a whole table (up to four yarns), half table (up to two yarns), or a spot at our communal table (one yarn), allowing attendees to become familiar with new and exciting products, and provide them with the opportunity to “try before you buy.”
The Yarn Café is a great place for Exhibitors to showcase their new products, or encourage a new audience to return to an old favorite. Your company name, logo, booth number, yarn name and yarn specs will be displayed on the table with your products. A table with two ball winders and two swifts will also be provided.
Sponsorship is open to Yarn Group Members. If you are not yet a Yarn Group member, you can join online.
Sponsors will be asked to provide the following:
- Approx. 400 yds of each yarn (unused yarn will be returned at the end of the show)
- One whole skein with label for display alongside your yarn.
- Yarn specs (yardage, weight, suggested gauge and needles size)
- 80 words or less about the company and product
- A high resolution logo to print and yarn label in jpg format that will used to showcase your company and product on the yarn tasting menu
