Notes from the St. Charles Trade Show

I am blessed the St. Charles TNNA Show is in my backyard (almost). This year, because I am working as  a consultant more for other companies I had no need of a booth, so, I got to work the show, walk the show and spend time with friends I have had for over 15 years. Visiting fiber and embellishment booths (co.) are by far my favourite-- I suppose because I am also so inspired by color and texture.

My FAVE products from the show are the over dyed metallics from ThreadworX (sooo cool and stunning) and the new wool from Weeks Dye Works. Her color palette is beautiful. I love just holding fiber.

I met an absolutely wonderful, sweet lady---Linda from The Primitive Needle's, Mother. She is just a dear. We chatted for a bit during the lag of the day.

As for new patterns, you all have seen them, because it seems they are posted online prior to the shows these days. In the "old" days it used to be the designers waited to release any pics until after the show.

I posted a photo of the metallics from ThreadworX today. The photo does not do it justice. Tomorrow will be Weeks Wool.

Please feel free to send me an email or comment if you have any questions about the show...
