TNNA yarns

The folks from Martingale invited me to attend the The National Needlearts Association (TNNA) trade show this past weekend. So many cool things to see and people to meet. Since my book isn’t released yet, I came armed with samples of some of the patterns to drum up interest.


The folks at “Soak” were particularly enamored with my designs and started to decorate their booth with a few of the zoo animals. They seemed right at home!

Some other booths all ready had their own “animals” set up for the show. These lovely models belong to the folks at “Dream” in West Chicago, IL. They seemed excited about contributing some of their beautiful yarn to some of my future design endeavors.

Crochet A Zoo

In the Unicorn booth, we spotted the spiral version of my book on the Martingale shelf getting chummy with a couple of crochet sock books!

This case from YarnPop is definitely on my list of things to buy (once I pick up an i pad). It’s a knitting/crochet and ipad combination case (perfect for working on digital patterns!). The i pad fits behind the plastic on the right side so you can keep your tools and patterns close at hand.

When I wasn’t being distracted by all the beautiful yarns, project bags and notions, I spent the rest of my time at the conference tracking down and chatting with the various magazine publishers. With any luck, I might be able to publish a pattern article or two this year. Fingers crossed and more updates to come!
