2014 Nina Winter Games…

Posted on: January 29th, 2014 by nina chicago

It only happens once every four years!

We’d like to formally invite you to the first ever NINA WINTER GAMES


Are you up for a little competition?  Enter our Winter Games!

First, choose the event in which you’d like to compete:

Shibui Snowboarding, HiKoo Luge or  Classic Elite Curling

Using only the yarns within your designated yarn company (Shibui, HiKoo or Classic Elite), you may knit or crochet whatever you like!

Projects must be started after the opening ceremony and completed before the closing ceremony, so choose wisely!

A gold, silver and bronze medal will be awarded within each event, based on level of difficulty, technical merit, and creativity.

There will be special discounts for those who enter and prizes for medal winners!

The 2014 Nina Winter Games take place from 3-5pm the following Saturdays:
Feb 1 –   opening ceremony & events commencement
Feb 8 –   regular events & special speed competition
Feb 15 – regular events & special artistic competition
Feb 22 – events conclusion, closing ceremony & awards

Participation is free with the purchase of your yarn. You may choose to come in ahead of time to pick your project or do so on opening day.

Please call us at 773.486.8996 to reserve your spot in one of the three events, or email us at info@ninachicago.com.

We look forward to seeing some perfect 10s!
