Join us for this unique virtual event focused exclusively on the yarn industry!

As a shop owner, you can browse our curated marketplace and connect with indie dyers and makers that offer their products wholesale. 

As a designer, you can network with dyers and share news of your upcoming releases. 

All business owners can join workshops focusing on self-care and time management, accounting, email marketing and more.

So how will it work?

Your $25 registration fee will provide you with access to a special section of the Indie Untangled website. From there, during the show, you can browse virtual vendor booths with photo galleries and wholesale information. You’ll also be able to join interactive shopping sessions through Zoom and book private appointments with business owners.

Registered attendees will have access to the Indie Untangled Wholesale Marketplace through the first quarter of 2022. We hope this can be a resource you’ll use throughout the year!
