Sock Summit Update 3 ( where we are now)

We are buried in mounds of virtual paper. Lots and lots of amazing and intriguing class proposals from quite an impressive group of teachers.  Thank you so much for getting these back to us within the deadline. It does help in keeping things moving along and on schedule.

This brings us to the next step, going through all of this knit brilliance, organizing and framing it all into a cohesive and thorough representation of all that is sock knitting from cuff to toe, yarn to needles.

We will be contacting teachers within the next few weeks to go over the details, ask and answer questions, sign contracts, basically setting this part of the stage.

I think this is one of the fun parts like putting together a really big knit puzzle. This class piece goes here and look it fits so nicely with this one and then creates this space… (yeah, call the geek squad).

There are also a fair amount of vendor information sheets that have come in. Debbi is going through these. If you have not sent yours in yet, please do so as soon as possible.

Vendors can expect to hear from us towards the end of December with more information.

Our wonder-web people at Hops Studio are working on the next phase of the website. Cat, Claire, Gail and e few others are pulling together a really exciting KAL that will start very soon and go through the beginning of July.

We are checking the sign up info weekly. Vendor and sponsor info is sent out then, once a week. We are not ready to send out attendee info and probably won’t until after the beginning of the year. for updates please check here. This is the easiest place so far for us to do this. The moderators on the Ravelry group will do their best to answer questions and or bring them to our attention. You can also comment here or email a question to the appropriate addy from the sock summit update 1 post here.

We do have hotel room blocks in the area with Sock Summit discount rates. We will put these up with the next website upgrade. This is why all of the hotels seem full we have them, so don’t panic.

Well, I think that about covers it for now. Off to wade through all of this glorious sock knitting brilliance and talent. There is a lot. There are not enough words to tell you just how privileged I feel to be part of this knit tradition. ok…

    Just wanting to know about sign ups.  This will be a well attended event from the talk I have seen.  When can we actually register for the conference.  Many folks are wanting to secure their travel dates and plans while the rates are good for doing so.  I know with the IOLI (international Old Lacers,Inc) conference, sign ups begin this month, and there are limits to what a class can hold.  Their conference is in August and planning had been going on for two years.  They have a head start.  Since I cannot participate as a vendor/sponsor, I would like to attend.  Not much has been posted yet about sign ups or how much the conference will cost?  Will there be a one cost for the conference and additional cost for classes? (which is the case at the IOLI conventions).  As a teacher at one of the IOLI conventions, I made sure that the vendors attending carried my books and publications and any materials that I did not supply for my classes.  This helps the vendors to pay their expenses and supports them.  (Just a suggestion.)
