Getting Ready for the Trade Show

Today's the big day when classes start in Columbus for the big TNNA June trade show.  The shops take these classes and then come home and teach their customers fun things with new threads and techniques.  But a lot of preparation is involved by the designers and tool and thread manufacturers.

Tapestry Fair has finalized their 3-D turkey canvas and is busy writing up the stitch guides.  You can't see the back panel on the turkey's rear.  It reads Gobble Gobble in funky letters. LOL

DMC has new colors in their memory thread, mostly neutrals although they have a lovely aqua and a lovely purple in the wired category now.

Patt and Lee Designs has packed the car and are driving like the wind to the show.

The shops are excited about the show.  The Stitching Studio is taking classes and plans to blog about their experience.

Team Deeva is getting excited, too.

Robin has even created an apron of all her Creepy Halloween Characters for Needle Deeva to better catch the eye of shop owners at Market.  After all, this is the time when everyone has to convince the shop owners to buy from them.

I wish everyone a safe and productive trip.  Have fun and don't forget to tell us all about it!
