TNNA Report - June 2009

During the last few months I have been working on my pattern line, trying to get it ready for TNNA (The National Needlearts Association) trade show in June. This year, it was held in Columbus, Ohio, so my business partner, Jane, and I were able to drive. We have been going to this for the past few years, but this time, it was different. This time, we were launching our pattern lines, renting a booth, and trying to sell our patterns to the yarn shops. We decided to transport all our paraphernalia for the booth ourselves. Which meant, two cars. Two big cars. My car is too small, so we persuaded Jane's daughter, Amy, to join us, and help us with our booth. And - she has a big car! :-)
We had a great time at TNNA, and our patterns were well received. I will be posting more pictures of our booth, but wanted to first post this picture of Amy - which shows the way we were all feeling after we set everything up.
By the way, thank you to all of our friends who helped us set up, tear down, and schlep everything to and from the hotel. We do appreciate it!
More later.
