Ok, I’m about ready to be done traveling for awhile! First it was Quilt Market in MN, then to a friend’s in AL the next weekend, then to TNNA’s yarn market in OH last weekend. I am a little behind in everything now. But I did have fun! And I have to say, it was fun to be back in Columbus, OH with Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream. (Well, and the yarn. Of course the yarn.) And hey – St. Louis peeps – they’re opening a Jeni’s in the Central West End! Go visit!
I found a few new things, a few new bases from some of our favorite companies, and did a lot of re-stocking orders. Plus had some meetings with people as we’re working on cooking up some new things for you, so that’s always fun!
Generally, they don’t like you taking many photos at Yarn Market, but I saw a lot of phones out this time and snuck in a few. First of all, there was this going on. I had no desire to pop into their convention hall, which was next door to the yarn market.
I did not partake in the Zombie
Parade Walk that happened down there the first night. Nor did I get used to seeing Zombies walking around the convention center while we were there. I think they probably wondered about all of the yarn people walking around, too.
Here’s a peek into the market:
And a couple of fun oversized displays from the Skacel and Colinette booths:
We should start getting these new yarn orders in this month and on into the summer. We’ll keep you posted as they arrive!
