TNNA Report

Wow! Where do I begin? TNNA was so much fun. To think I was only able to be there for 6 hrs on Saturday is crazy. No way did I get to see everything but everything that I did see was wonderful. First off to see my Knitterella product displayed at the Bryson booth was a thrill. Really, it's still hard for me to comprehend that I have a rep like Bryson!

As if seeing my Knitterella product on display wasn't enough, I was able to meet so many knitters and designers. Designers that I admire like Nina of SKIF, Maggie of Pick Up Sticks, Norah Gaughan, Ysolda and Amy Butler (OMG, Amy Butler was debuting her new line of YARN! You're going to love it). Such a whirlwind! I would have taken more photos but technically cameras weren't allowed. However, I was able to sneak a photo of Amy Butler with my phone. (That's the lovely Melynda of French Press Knits on the left - luckily her and I were able to meet up and cruise the show together)

The photo below from Ysolda's awesome make shift photo booth. Her booth was really fun.

I was also able to meet up with people that I've been doing graphic design work for. People like della Q, Debra's Garden, Fibersphere, Knitwhits and Deep South Fibers. It was so nice to be able to finally put a face with a name.

Melynda and I had so much fun at this event that we just registered to go to Stitches Mid West in August. Are any of you going? I'm excited to meet more fellow knitters. It's a great group to be a part of!

Sounds like a ton of fun! I love Ysolda's stuff and Amy Butler, too! If I wasn't going to a wedding in August I'd be up for the Stitches Mid-West conference. Sounds so fun!

It's fun to read all the "reports" from TNNA. Each one is different with a point in commun: everyone loved it! Congratulations on the exposure of your products!
