Newcomer Pavilion Partner

Indie Untangled is a unique platform that helps fiber enthusiasts learn about indie yarn dyers and makers and keep track of shop updates, sales and special promotions. Many yarn shop owners and designers, along with crafting consumers, have found the website, weekly newsletter and annual Rhinebeck Trunk Show, to be invaluable resources for sourcing indie yarns and accessories.

Craft supply retailers are always looking for emerging makers to feature, and trade shows like h+h are a great way to get your products in front of them. However, we understand how overwhelming it can be to scale your small business. The Newcomer Pavilion offered by Indie Untangled is designed to help solo-preneurs and small startups in all segments of the craft industry take advantage of this opportunity with support and guidance.

Exhibitors in the Newcomer Pavilion will receive special discounted pricing for a cooperative space in the center of the action on the show floor. In addition, you will get help building the wholesale segment of your business, with special education and networking events to set you up for success at h+h americas and moving forward.

We can’t wait to tell the story of your brand!
