Vogue Knitting Live Chicago went out with a bang on Sunday, marking the end of four busy days of lectures, demonstrations and workshops.
Kicking off the final day was Deborah Newton with a one-hour lecture about her new book, Finishing School, which included the importance of finishing touches.
"Don't make your sweaters the way I make them. Make them your own! Add a detail," she told the audience, The Examiner reports.
Ms Newton wasn't the only member of the Knitterati in attendance, with Franklin Habit following this sell-out show with a lecture on practical needlework.
This engaging talk covered its origins in the late 1800s and went on to discuss how to combine needlework and knitting to create professional standard knitted garments.
As well as listening to celebrity and famous knitwear designers, those in attendance had the opportunity to meet the lecturers and ask questions to their knitting idols.
This meant that those with particularly tricky problems could receive professional solutions and fans who were simply keen to chat to their favourite knitwear designers could have a chance for one-on-one conversation.
Vogue's Live Knitting show puts an emphasis on practical skills and advice, and heading into the afternoon sessions a discussion was held entitled Getting Published, where designers and authors shared their tips on how to break into the business and get noticed by the right audience.
Meanwhile, in the Marketplace, Vickie Howell helped teach beginner knitting and crochet classes, while also taking time to sign copies of her book.
At the end of the day visitors could head to the Knitted Art Gallery to view an array of knitted American Presidents and other equally impressive feats.
The show has been hailed a rousing success, appealing to both Chicago-based and international visitors, who were able to meet their idols, gain professional advice and learn more about knitting and crocheting.
