blurb from website:

"The Stitches Needlework Fair and Consumer Markets are a real "must attend" for knitting enthusiasts. Traditionally, the Stitches East version is one of the largest, and this year it is returning to Baltimore for the second year, after having been at Atlantic City, NJ and King of Prussia, PA for many years before that. Last year's show was in early November, but this year it is returning to its more traditional time in mid-October. In the past few years there have been approximately 200 exhibitors, and so it is a great event for those looking for a supply of almost anything to knit. Stitches features a range of activities including classes, lectures, fashion shows, banquets and the Stitches Market, the most incredible shopping experience that any knitter or yarn enthusiastic could hope for."

I traveled from Philadelphia to Baltimore for the event this year. It was reccomended by a fellow crocheter. Unfortunately this was not a "must attend" event. While my daughter and I found the variety of yarns to be exciting the prices quickly put a damper on the mood. In addition, we found the "vibe" of the event to be stand-offish and snobbish. We have attended other yarn enthusiast events that were inspriring and warm. I can say definitively that we will not attend any other Stitches events.
