Purl SoHo, a Holiday Handmade Cavalcade Sponsor

With the Holiday Handmade Cavalcade just two weeks away, we would like to take time to introduce you to our overall sponsors of our event. The first sponsor we would like to highlight is Purl SoHo,  one of the most well-loved yarn, fabric, and crafts store in New York City.

Purl was first founded in 2002 as a friendly yarn shop where people could gather and share each other's creativity. In 2006, they opened Purl Patchwork a few stores down from Purl, and in 2010 they combined forces and opened a new, larger space in SoHo called Purl SoHo.

Not only does Purl SoHo provide amazing materials for crafters of any age or ability, they also provide hundreds of comprehensive tutorials and projects on their Purl Bee blog in knitting, crocheting, sewing, crafting, and embroidery. Check out the latest crochet journal, Bear's Rainbow Blanket.

Some of my favorite posts come from Molly. She develops easy-to-follow tutorials that often produce items that are perfect for gift giving. One of my favorites? These stacking linen pillows, a perfect housewarming gift.

If you're new to a specific craft, need a brief reminder about the blanket stitch, or just want to hone your skills, each category of craft on their blog contains tutorials with tons of easy-to-follow photos.

Purl SoHo recently developed their own line of luxury yarns in super soft merino. They come in the brightest and boldest of Purl SoHo's signature colors like Super Pink, Peacock Blue, and Heirloom White. Whatever color you choose, you can be sure it will make a bold statement while also providing maximum warmth and toastiness!

If you can't make it to the store, Purl SoHo also has an easy-to-navigate online store. There you can find everything you need for any of the project journals they have on their blog, as well as tons of other essential items!

Many thanks again to Purl SoHo for their support. Be sure to be one of the first 100 people on each day to come to the Holiday Handmade Cavalcade to score one of our great goodie bags. Purl SoHo has contributed fat quarters to the bags, so come early!

When: Saturday & Sunday, December 1st and 2nd
Time: 11am - 6pm

More information about our sponsors, goodie bag contributions, our awesome food vendors, and other Cavalcade news are coming up, so stay tuned!
