It’s summer in New York and there’s no better time to shop for new knit and crochet supplies to keep your fingers busy and your wardrobe fashionable!

You won’t want to miss Friday’s Parade of Fashions from exhibiting companies on the show floor. See the latest and greatest styles, then visit the booths selling the yarn and patterns!

Visit the Knit & Crochet Café on the show floor, welcoming you to rest your feet and purchase a rejuvenating cup of coffee or a cool drink of water.

It’s a fantastic time to expand your needle arts knowledge — CLASSES taught by THE BEST faculty in the world. And it’s YOUR TIME to have fun, laugh, relax and enjoy yourself at the ONE MARKET for knit and crochet.

To read this summer…

Summer On Blossom Street by Debbie Macomber


From Publishers Weekly:
Macomber adds a tear-jerking installment to the Blossom Street series with this account of lives intersecting at the series-hinging yarn store, A Good Yarn. Upbeat cancer survivor Lydia and her pragmatic sister, Margaret, start a Knit to Quit group in their Blossom Street yarn store, hoping to bring in customers for weekly self-help sessions. Casey, the 12-year-old girl Lydia takes in while waiting for an infant of her own to adopt, helps out in the shop when she’s not sulking in her room or causing trouble for Lydia’s family. Local baker Alix wants a baby as much as Lydia does, but she and her husband agree she needs to quit smoking first. Then there’s super-stressed chocolate magnate, Hutch, who takes the knitting class after his doctor suggests it. Hutch hits it off with Phoebe, who is trying to quit obsessing about a broken engagement. Rounding out the crowd, bookstore owner Ann Marie must deal with her adopted daughter Ellen’s biological father, a recovering addict, re-entering their lives. Macomber deftly handles the multiple story lines and emotional terrain of families, while the predictably happy ending is very genuine.
