We have some crazy exciting news for those of you who have the New York Sheep & Wool Festival on your radar this year: Pom Pom will be there! We are over the moon to be hosted by Merritt Bookstore. There are kind of too many wonderful things to say about this, so we’ll just have to condense it down to the two major things for now:
- We are going to be doing an exclusive pre-release of the Winter issue, just for you Rhinebeck attendees. That’s two weeks earlier than general release, so you’ll be the first in the world to get your hands on it!
- The Winter issue, like the Autumn issue, is pretty darn star-studded, so we are thrilled to be hosting signings from seven of these amazing designers throughout the weekend.
Be sure to mark your schedules for the weekend so you don’t miss out on getting your own copies of Pom Pom signed by one (or all!) of these incredible designers – the schedule is as follows:
Saturday, October 17th
9.30 – 10.30 Kiyomi Burgin
11.00 – 12.00 Joji Locatelli
12.30 – 2.30 Olga Buraya-Kefelian
3.00 – 5.00 Rachel Coopey
Sunday, October 18th
10.00 – 12.00 Bristol Ivy
12.30 – 2.30 Caarin Fleischmann
3.00 – 5.00 Allison Jane
Also, can we take a moment to marvel at the artwork up there? It’s a modified version of part of the comic that will be appearing in the Winter issue by long-time PPQ contributor Katie Green. We can promise you that the rest of it is even more gorgeous than what you see here. Eep!
We’ll have more exciting announcements about the festival in the weeks running up to it, so be sure keep your eyes on our Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and Ravelry accounts. Now hands up if we’ll see you there!
