Mark your calendars now!

Knitting in the Heartland (KITH) is a biennial weekend conference that celebrates knitting and the Kansas City metro area's knitting community.  The event includes a variety of exciting classes featuring local and internationally recognized knitting instructors.  A free vendor market

brings together fiber artists and yarn shops from around the midwest. 

The Sunflower Knitters' Guild has sponsored this event for over 15 years.

The Sunflower Knitters Guild is pleased to announce that New York Times bestselling author and acclaimed knitter, Stephanie Pearl-McPhee will be our featured instructor and keynote speaker for KITH 2016!

Stephanie Pearl-McPhee is the New York Times bestselling author of eight books, seven of which have a lot to do with knitting.  (The eighth is lighter in the yarn department, but is still funny.) She's been knitting for more than forty years, and is also the author of the popular and long lived blog "Yarn Harlot” and part of the magic at the Strung Along Retreats for knitters.  Stephanie loves to teach about knitting and thinks that most people would be surprised how important she thinks it is.  She's the mother of three, wife of one, can drive a standard, and has owned two cats in a row that don't care much for her.  Stephanie lives in an untidy, wool filled house in Toronto, Canada.
