CustomFit at Stitches West 2015

Looking for a little CustomFit motivation and encouragement?

Lauren will be at Stitches West to spread some CustomFit cheer – so come say hi!

With BIG thanks to the generosity of our buddies at The Yarnover Truck for letting us borrow a corner in their booth for a few hours, I (Lauren!) will be offering both a limited number of measurement appointments, and an informal CustomFit Q + A / show-off session.

So if you want to get started with CustomFit, or if your first CustomFit sweater didn’t turn out as you’d hoped, or you just want to come and talk to the source, this is a great chance.

Here’s a quick run-down of my schedule for the weekend:

Saturday, Feb. 21st

  • Measurements 10:30 am – 12:30 pm
  • Measurements 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
  • CustomFit Q + A – 4:30 – 6:00 pm

Sunday, Feb. 22nd

  • Measurements 11:00 am – 1:00 pm

Want more details?

CustomFit Q + A

If you have questions about how to get started or where your sweater went wrong, or just want to talk CustomFit, come by the Yarnover Truck in booth 1048 between 4:30 – 6:00 pm on Saturday. This is an informal session — no set schedule. If you have trouble with your gauge changing, bring some swatches! Not sure about your armhole depth? Show me a sweater. Just need to understand how CustomFit works? Not to worry, I’ll have my iPad with me and I can show you. Most of all, I’m excited to see (and Instagram!) your finished CustomFit sweaters.


Measurements cost $20 and require pre-registration/pre-payment. Each session will last 10 minutes, so please be on time! You can register right here. You’ll immediately receive a confirmation email, and then I’ll get in touch later this week with more details and an appointment time.

We’d love to measure everyone, but I’m going solo at Stitches this year (Amy’s travel schedule is crazy this spring, and Jackie’s got a little one coming soon!), so we have just a few slots. If you’ve been measured by us before, please note that in your registration so we can give priority to those who’ve never been measured.

Football update

We’ve also crowned a winner from our Super Bowl Giveaway! As the sad loser, I’ve picked out a sweater quantity of Rowan Felted Tweed in a lovely purple, to send to our lucky winner Anne:

I’ll take a stab and say Patriots will win. While I may or may not be watching, I’ll be finishing up an overdue test knit for Laura Aylor.

Anne, I’ve emailed you, and I hope you finished your sweater! For a consolation prize, I’ll also be sending a CustomFit gift certificate to a Seahawks fan. Next year is our year, I just know it. Kathy, I hope you wear the sweater you worked on this year for next year’s game!

I’m finishing the custom Featherweight I started before Christmas ( and which got interrupted by the holidays (should be done tonight or tomorrow at the latest). I love the Quince & Co. yarn.

Thanks for playing, everyone!
