Going on a crochet adventure: from Montreal to Rhinebeck, NY in 2023!

Are you ready for a whirlwind of woolly inspiration? I know I am!

Next week, I’ll be hitting the road, driving from Montreal, Qc to Rhinebeck, NY, and I couldn’t be more excited. Rhinebeck is close enough to Montreal that each year, many Montrealers visit the event and I’ve been looking forward to it being my turn to go =)

Crocheters welcome

You know I’m passionate about crochet, and this journey is the embodiment of that passion. The Sheep and Wool Festival is a paradise for yarn lovers, offering unique fibers, indie dyers, and handmade tools. Historically, this event – like many others – has been knit-centric, but as I see the number of my crochet colleagues also making the trip, I can’t wait to immerse myself in the vibrant crochet community there and connect with fellow enthusiasts.

Let me give you a sneak peek into the events I’ll be part of.

Satellite events

Indie Untangled, Wool and Folk, and CAKEpalooza are all satellite events that celebrate the artistry of independent designers and the beauty of handmade creations. I’ll definitely be indulging in the sweetest fiber treats, so don’t mind me if I seem lost in a skein of handdyed yarn!

I have advance tickets to *everything*. Next weekend is not for rest!

Gosadi house

As an alpha tester for Gosadi, I’ve been super excited for the opportunities it is bringing to us designers. Gosadi is a revolutionary platform that promises to streamline our pattern sales channels and make our life as designers so much easier : it’s a breeze to share patterns to different platforms, to engage with my audience, and to manage my business.

I keep saying it’s a time saver. It really is. Look for more about Gosadi soon on this website as I test and explore all the innovative features it has to offer.


Get ready for an incredible journey with me as I venture from Montreal to Rhinebeck, NY. Being a guest at the Gosadi House is an honor, and I’ll be sharing my experience with you on social through the weekend. If you’re in the area, make sure to say hello.
