290 partial closure this weekend

Houston Transtar is reporting a total closure of 290 between Bingle and Tidwell on Saturday and Sunday.

DETOUR: From central Houston, the fastest alternate route is probably I-10 W > Beltway-8 N > 290 W. Those of you outside Beltway 8, your drive should not be affected.

If you are taking classes on Saturday or Sunday, please leave early and allow extra driving time! We’re sorry about the inconvenience!

The Meet-Up Table

There’s more to Houston Fiber Fest than just classes and shopping; there’s also the fun of meeting new friends! The Meet-Up Table in the atrium (look for the balloons!) is the place to be. There will be knit- and crochet-alongs, stitch marker swaps, demos, and lots of opportunities for you to talk with other Houston area fiber enthusiasts who share your interests. When the vendor hall closes on Friday and Saturday evening, gather at the table to coordinate group outings to local restaurants.

Peyton Heart Project

peyton

This year the Houston Fiber Fest is partnering up with the Peyton Heart Project to raise awareness about suicide and bullying. Please visit ThePeytonHeartProject.org to learn more about this important organization.

Stop by the Peyton Heart Project booth in the atrium to say hello, donate hearts, or learn more about the organization. The tables in the atrium stitching lounge will have yarn for you to knit or crochet your own heart at the festival! You can make a few hearts while you wait, or make hearts ahead of time to bring with you. There are links to several free knit & crochet heart patters available at ThePeytonHeartProject.org/making-the-hearts/
