Yes! All transactions are charged in Canadian dollars.
Do I get complimentary Marketplace Admission with my lecture/Pub Quiz/Knit Night ticket?
No. You will need to purchase a Marketplace Admission ticket separately.
Do I get a physical ticket mailed to me?
No. All tickets are delivered electronically, to the email address you register with. It is imperative you register with an email address that you check frequently as this is where your ticket will be sent. Adding email@example.com to your contact list can also help.
We do not and will not ever share your email address with anyone. Your address will be added to our Workshop and Lecture ticket email list only, and will be used for communication for Knit City 2019 only.

It's up to you. You can show your ticket on your smart phone, or you can print it out for us to scan at admission.
You will need to show the ticket at both your workshop admission desk and the Marketplace admission desk though, so make sure you don't delete it or throw your printed copy away.

Once a class is sold out, a waitlist option will be available on the registration page.
