I was fortunate to be able to attend the Knit and Crochet show again this year! My second conference was even better than the first! I made a point to try to find as many friends that I have previously only known online, and walk up and introduce myself. It is like a treasure hunt looking for people, and then getting to have a wonderful conversation in person with people you have chatted with online for years! The icing on the cake was getting to meet many new people who became friends as well. A love of crochet brings us all together!
I spent 4 days getting to talk about crochet, and learn some interesting new techniques. I will talk about those in a future post.
There were several highlights, and one was getting reunited with Ellen Gormley for our book signing.
Another big highlight was selling our eWoodStory line of crochet kits and wooden items to stitch in the Crochetville/ Red Heart Yarns booth. We had a great response to our products,which is so rewarding, and will encourage us to expand our range!
The Design Competition was also a big highlight. Below see the amazing Grand Prize winning crocheted sonogram, by the very talented Kayt Ross! See all of the winning entries on Susan Lowman's blog
Next year's show will be in Charleston, South Carolina, July 13-17! Keep checking the Knit and Crochet Show website for more details, closer to the date!
