We've been super busy the past week as we prepare for the upcoming TNNA show in Washington, DC! TNNA is a industry-only trade show that happens twice a year, and it's our opportunity to show our retailers what we have available for them for the upcoming season. We will be in Booth 578, and if you're at the show be sure to drop in and say, "Hello!"
There is a lot of work to be done leading up to the TNNA, but we wouldn't miss it for the world. Going is so fun, and we can't wait to see all of our yarn-y friends. It's where collaborations are born, information is shared, new friends are made, old friends revisited, and new products come to life.
The offices and warehouse have been suffering varying degrees of messiness as we put together yarn tastings for Sample It (I'm calling it 'a yarn party in a box'), pack lots of our NEW yarn for shops to purchase to knit samples for the upcoming season, and make sure we have all new color cards made (among a million other things).
TNNA prep is a magical time of year, though, and it gives us an opportunity to ensure that we really have everything ready for our shops as we gear up for the fall season.
Many of you have already seen some sneak peeks of our new fall yarn, and it is scrumptious. We've been sending it out to designers and magazines, and there are some fantastic patterns headed your way this fall season. We'll be officially unveiling it to the public at the beginning of August, but we will have sample quantities available to retailers at TNNA.
We have designed a nine piece collection for the new yarn, and all the garments will be on display at the show. One of them will also be making an appearance in the Yarn Group Fashion Show.
We are also thrilled to have a NEW collection from designer Lori Versaci which will be on display in our booth, #578. She posted a few sneak peeks as well on her Instagram page, and we'll have all the garments in person in the booth. We couldn't be more pleased. Look for Lori's collection to be released in early Fall.
