Now that the blocking is done, the mannequin packed and the car completely stuffed, it’s time to hit the road!
This week, the Chic Knits Trunk show wheels its way down to Columbus, Ohio, for the TNNA Fall show.
This is exciting in more ways than one!
First of all, it’s a JOLT to see the new designs all ready for their debut – at no other time does a new release have such energy! All blocked, pressed, primped: some even have extra clothes and accessories themselves to be displayed and will be all put together on Friday when we raise the roof/booth.
Then there’s the show itself. The floorplan shows over 1800 booths! Now, some companies will use mutilples spaces, but at the end of the day, I think it is still well over a thousand entities exhibiting! WOW! Go-go TNNA!
That and the fact that the Craft is going strong and all you fine knitters and stitchers are as in love with it as much as moi is enough to colour me proud! I’m taking evey single one of you with me this week – dare I say the wings beneath my wings – so when I get the inevitable stage fright of being in public at large, I will happily know you’ve got my back. :)
So here’s the skinny:
