Activities & Important Info for Attendees:

  • Welcome Gathering at 7pm Thursday night in the Stitching Room

  • Shopping Annex: across the hall from the Stitching Room at the Convention Center will be a room filled to the brim with trunk shows from some of your favorite designers & vendors! It will be open during the event with hours TBD.

  • Brag Table: there will be A LOT of tables set up to show off your beautiful stitching. We encourage you to bring a piece or two to show off, if you'd like. It can be FFO'd, FO'd, or even a WIP...if you're proud of it...we wanna see it!

  • Freebie Table: bring any charts you have in your stash you'd like to pass on to other stitchers. While at Stitch-Con, feel free to peruse this table and take whatever you'd like!

  • Smalls Exchange (optional): stitch & finish a 'small' (no larger than 6"x6" stitched) and we will do an exchange. Please bring this item fully-finished & wrapped. Also include your name & city, state for indentification inside the package. Examples of smalls include: ornaments, biscornus, cubes, scissor fobs, flat-folds, etc. 

  • Needleminder Swap (optional): bring needleminders to swap amongst your friends at Stitch-Con. Maybe bring something with your favorite animal on them or some you made yourself. Regardless, have fun with this!

  • Electrical Outlets: It is Convention Center policy that NO electrical cords run across the floor, as they consider it a tripping hazard. We WILL have electrical cords that come down from the ceiling, but they will be spread throughout the room, not one per table. Our advice to you is this: if you know you will definitely need a light to stitch, we recommend investing in a batter-powered light or one that clips on to your q-snap/hoop/frame. The Stitching Room is VERY well lit & we don't forsee any issues with lighting, but we wanted you to be aware of the situation. 

  • Parking: there are marked parking spots for those staying at the Hyatt, connected to the Convention Center. If you are staying at the Hyatt you WILL receive a parking tag for your vehicle & are therefore you are welcome to park in those marked spots. If you are NOT staying at the Hyatt, please do NOT park in the marked Hyatt parking spots...your car WILL be towed, at your own expense, if you do!

  • Convention Center Entrances: there are two entrances to the Convention Center, Entrance A & Entrance B. You CAN get to the Stitching Room from either entrance, but the best entrance to use ENTRANCE B. But don't worry, there will be signage throughout the Convention Center to direct you if needed.

  • Food/Drinks/Alcohol: there will be a concession stand open for the event, directly outside the Stitching Room, for you to purchase beverages & snacks. You can bring snacks & drinks for yourself, but you CANNOT order food to be delivered to the Convention Center. There is a strict NO alcohol policy inside the Convention Center/Stitching Room. Please be respectful of these policies.
