The one-of-a-kind chance to experience everything knitting is coming back to Bellevue.

Vogue Knitting LIVE – including dozens of vendors, demos and classes from experts, and a fashion show featuring knit-couture pieces – returns to Meydenbauer Center March 14-16.

Last year's first event in the region drew more than 5,000 people. "We're excited to come back and share knitting with all of the Northwest," said Marketing Manager Beth Ritter.

Not only does the event offer the chance to sample and purchase unique yarns and knitting accessories, but there also is a beginner lounge where those just getting started can learn skills in a low-pressure, friendly environment.

Teachers include a number of best-selling authors on knitting and experts in the field from around the country who will offer tips, tricks and industry secrets aimed at opening up more possibilities with a pair of needles.

The fashion show is always a fan favorite, with the chance to see models sport the latest trends that incorporate styles explored in classes and by knitters in attendance.

The event begins Thursday, March. 13 with a three-hour classroom session and continues through Sunday with classes and the marketplace, which features vendors from around the world selling needles, hooks, books, finished garments and yarn.

And it isn't just the traditional wool and cotton that are available, with exotic fibers like bison and mohair.

Registration for individual classes and tickets to the marketplace, as well as a complete list of vendors, are available online at vogueknittinglive.com or by calling 866-700-2262.
