Last weekend, I was at the summer TNNA (The National Needlearts Association) trade show. I had another great year having a booth with the Stitch Sprouts
crew! Here are just a few of the pictures I took throughout the weekend.
I really love how my booth space came together this year:

I did a couple of book signings. They were some of my favorite parts of the weekend. I love getting to chat with yarn store owners about the new book
. I'm happy that they were excited about the book as I am!
I brought a few of the samples from Stunning Stitches
to display in my booth. They got a great response. Yay!
I attended the Business Creative Services event on Saturday night. It was great to meet new people who work in the same area of the industry. And, we got a great goodie bag with lots of amazing products from companies that support designers.
I walked away from my booth for 5 minutes, and my husband met Vickie Howell
. I'm completely jealous. Many of you know that she is my A-Number-One knitting celebrity. Her show, Knitty Gritty, taught me so many things. Alex assured me that he told her that I loved her. Maybe next year I'll be able to go fan girl on her. :)
Part of the fun of being with the Stitch Sprouts designers, was making Facebook Live videos! Here's Heather Zoppetti

doing a pin loom demo!
I had to go check out the new Knitter's Pride needles
. Their Dreamz and Karbonz needles are among my favorites. I think I might need to get the new Zing needles
. I really liked them!
It was such a great weekend. I always come home so inspired and ready to work. And, it was so amazing to have Alex there with me this time. He really knows my business better than anyone else and it was fun to have him there helping me sell patterns and books. He loved hanging out with everyone. I think he'll be volunteering to help in my booth again next year!
