Off for TNNA!
I've been knitting/printing/packing/organizing and generally being my spazzy self x 1000 getting ready to leave for TNNA (our yarn industry's trade show). I am teaching on Thursday, and then running from events to meetings to social gatherings until Monday evening. SO EXCITED!
One thing I am extra super duper excited about? Ravelry asked me to do a trunk show of my new designs on Saturday in their booth (#454, if you are there) from 12 - 1. They are having a booth to help spread the word and start sign ups for a new program they are launching: Ravelry In Store Pattern Sales. This new module will allow stores to sell their customers my patterns (and those from MANY other awesome designers) at wholesale prices without me having to print and ship. It makes it so you have the option to store the pattern in your Ravelry library AND support your local yarn store! I am thrilled about this new development! Next time you stop into your LYS ask them if they have heard about the program... it has phenomenal potential for us all!!!!! Here's a little peek of the board I am building to promote Adorn:
Okay... enough exclamation points, you can tell I'm excited... see y'all next week with some giveaways of yarny goodness I collect on my trip!
