So how will it work?

Your in-person timed entry ticket will provide access to two open-air shopping pavilions at HITS, a beautiful outdoor property near the charming Village of Saugerties. Browse a juried selection of hand-dyed and custom-milled yarn, handmade project bags, stitch markers and more. After shopping, you’re invited to hang out, eat, craft and snap selfies with your beloved fiber friends.⁣ All in-person tickets, which range from $10 to $35, include access to our online event, which runs through the following weekend. Online vendors will also have an in-person presence.

Can’t make it in person? Join us for Indie Untangled Everywhere! Your $7 ticket will take you to a special section of the Indie Untangled website during the show. From there, you can browse virtual booths of both our in-person and online-only vendors with video introductions and tours, photo galleries, and access to special event products and discounts. Enjoy livestream interviews with our in-person vendors. Your ticket also includes access to our lounge, which is the place to go to meet and learn from our special guests.

Have your attendee info at hand

If you’re buying tickets for a group, you will be required to list the full name and email address for each person. Duplicate names and email addresses will not be accepted. We highly recommend typing the names and email addresses into a text document beforehand and copying and pasting this into the fields.

Ticket Guidelines

There is a limit of 4 tickets per shopping period per transaction.

You can only buy tickets to one session per transaction.

Waiting Room

If you’re part of a large group arriving to the website at the same time, you’ll be given an estimated wait time before you can access the site to make your ticket selection.

The waiting room will reserve your place in line using the device and browser you start with.

Once you’re in line, make sure to stay on the same device (don’t close the tab or open a new window).

The waiting room will automatically refresh and let you in when your place in line comes up.

Time is of the essence

Tickets will NOT be reserved while you’re checking out until payment is complete and the order is placed. You’ll see a confirmation screen and receive a payment receipt via email.

Plan ahead

Going back to the cart and removing tickets to change your selection will take time and will decrease your chances of getting tickets.

Good things to come…

When your purchase goes through, you’ll receive a confirmation email, but will receive your ticket about a month before the show.
