Stitches Midwest Part 2

Thursday evening is the first opportunity for people to shop at the Market preview. They start lining up at the door long before opening time talking about which booth they want to visit first and how they have been looking forward to this for so long. They are a very loud and excited group of people ready to fill their bags and empty their wallets. We hear the final countdown begin; 10, 9, 8, 7.......

Amy Shelton, co-owner with Donna Hulka, of Crochetville is ready for business! I love working with Amy. No matter how busy we get, she is always this calm and cool, never getting frazzled by the line wrapping around the booth.

The shoppers arrive! The booth looks great and everyone is happy! 

Check out the cool Red Heart bags we were giving away in the
 picture below. They were perfect to stuff full of yarn!

Just look at all these beautiful yarns with the gorgeous colors
and textures! If you couldn't make it to the show, don't worry, 
all these yarns are available online at Red Heart Yarns

I was very excited to discover that my design; the Square Deal Sweater
was featured on one of the big Red Heart banners! 
I had to have my picture taken with it. 

Tomorrow I'll tell you about our neighbors, the Crochet Guild of America, right across the aisle from us.

  1. I love the Square Deal sweater! You really are so very talented. You make such awesome designs. :)

    I also love the lace shirt you are wearing. Wow, that's so lovely. :)

    Keep that hook a flyin' and those awesome designs a' coming our way.

    I think Red Heart should do something with your designs. Kind of like a booklet or something of just your designs.

    Have a wonderful day :)
