HOW TO ATTEND

We are grateful for your continued interest in attending Stitch-Con!

 

Please read the information below carefully!

TO REGISTER

  • Get on the waitlist! On the day the waitlist opens make sure to have your payment information ready and your weekend preference (A, B, or "I can attend either weekend"). Fill out the form and hit "submit."

  • A month later, invoices will begin going out (2024 invoices will begin going out on Wednesday, Oct. 4, 2023), check your email for your Stitch-Con invoice. When you receive your invoice, you have ONE WEEK to pay it. When you are paid in full, congratulations, you are going to Stitch-Con!

Important notes:​

  • Spots are filled on a first come, first serve basis, in the order they were submitted to the waitlist. We reserve the right to close the waitlist at any time once the total number of submissions fits the event space. 

  • We do NOT hold or promise spots to anyone. Your attendance at a previous Stitch-Con does NOT guarantee you a spot at any future Stitch-Cons.

  • Stitch-Con LLC reserves the right to fully refund any registrant and/or refuse entrance at will.

WAITLIST

​If you submitted your form but do not receive an invoice in the first few weeks after the list opens, then your name will remain on our waitlist. Do not despair -- you could still get in!

When you put your name on the waitlist, you told us your desired weekend of attendance at Stitch-Con: 'I can attend Weekend A', 'I can attend Weekend B', or 'I can attend either weekend.'

If you chose the last option, when/if we get to your name on the list and send you an invoice, we will place you at whatever weekend has the least number of attendees AT THAT TIME.

If/when you get a Stitch-Con invoice, you are GUARANTEED to be placed at the weekend you chose at the time of your waitlist submission.​​​​​​​ Read your invoice carefully and double check that the weekend you're being invoiced for is correct.

If you need to change your weekend of attendance, please call Keepsakes at (513) 563-6845 or email the Stitch-Con Team. We cannot guarantee we'll be able to switch you, but we'll do our best!​

​​Once you receive your invoice, you have ONE WEEK to pay the invoice in full. After FOUR DAYS of nonpayment, you will receive a PayPal reminder, both on PayPal and via email. After ONE WEEK of nonpayment, your invoice will be cancelled. 

 

After both weekends of Stitch-Con are full of paid attendees, we will pull names from the wait list if/when we have cancellations.

REFUNDS

  • The last day to cancel and be guaranteed a full refund is Sunday, March 31, 2024.

  • Between Monday, April 1 and Stitch-Con 2024 Weekend A, we will no longer process refunds for Stitch-Con 2024. 

  • You can cancel your Stitch-Con 2024 attendance by calling Keepsakes at (513) 563-6845 or by emailing The Stitch-Con Team at barbarakeepsakes@gmail.com.

STITCH-CON 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 and makers! It will be open during the event with hours TBD. The trunk shows will be the exact same for both weekends. If you're interested in sending a trunk show, please drop us an email.

BRAG TABLE

Numerous tables set up along the walls of the Stitching Room to show off your beautiful stitching. We encourage you to bring a piece or two to show off! It can be fully-finished or not, we don't care! If you're proud of it, we want to see it! We will have small cards available for you to share any important information about your piece(s).

FREEBIE TABLE

Bring any charts, floss, fabric, or notions 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

Stitch and finish a 'small' (no larger than 6"x6" stitched) to be exchanged. Bring your fully-finished item wrapped. The wrapping must indicate the theme of the stitched piece. For example, if your stitched piece is a Christmas ornament you could wrap it in red & green wrapping paper! Please also include your name and city, state for identification inside the package. Examples of smalls include: ornaments, a biscornu, cubes, scissor fobs, flat-folds, etc. 

NEEDLEMINDER & FLOSS DROP SWAP

Bring needleminders and/or floss drops to swap amongst other attendees. In previous years, attendees have decorated these items with their FlossTube channel name or logo, their Instagram handle, pictures of their stitching, and countless other creative ideas. Regardless, have fun with this!

LATE-NIGHT STITCHING ROOM

Keep the stitching going into the night in our Late Night Stitching Room. This space will be available for our use at the Hyatt starting at 10 p.m. (it will close when the last person leaves, no later than 2 a.m.) on Thursday, Friday, & Saturday nights.
