This year we did something a bit different and offered visitors an opportunity to learn how to avoid needlework tedium-itis by hosting a coffee break with Dr. Thread and her assistants.
Here are some of the highlights of our visit:
Dr. Steve visited with Megan Chriswisser, editor of Needlework Retailer magazine.
Capi and Lyneen from Always in Stitches, a full-service needlework and quilting store in Noblesville, Indiana came by for a visit. They’re in-store experts can help you with any handicraft project.
As did Bob and Anna from Needles & Niceties in Upland, California. I had a chance to visit their needlework shop a few months back and enjoyed visiting with them. You can read about my visit here.
Kelly Rippy and her husband Robert from The Counted Needle were here to see what’s new for their shop in Bloomington, Illinois. Their specialties are counted needlework and custom framing.
As were Carol Reeves and Mary from the Stitch and Frame Shop of Rock Hill, South Carolina. This full service needlework and frame shop is located just 30 minutes from downtown Charlotte. It’s a beautiful drive and well worth the trip.
Mary Ann Kritl, along with Julie and Connie from Reflections Framing and Stitching from Papillion, Nebraska came by to say hello as well. They’re experts at framing needlework and offer a wide variety of cross stitch and needlework supplies, books and patterns.
These are just a handful of the wonderful people who dropped in for a visit. I wish there was room in the blog for every photo!
Looking forward to another successful TNNA show next year. Thank you all for dropping by!
