I just met Martin Story

I went to the Knitter's Mercantile for the first time. I just heard about it today. It's about 2 miles from my house. OMG, such gorgeous yarns. Some were $58 a skein, and I'd pay every penny.

Anyway, I didn't even know who he was. All of the women were just gushing over him. I was the only other guy in the store besides him, so I said "hi"....that was about it. The women wouldn't get the hell out of the way long enough for me to say anything further.

BTW, I just found out that the TNNA (The National NeedleArts Association) tradeshow is in town this weekend.
Is anyone from here going? I would like to check it out, but I know nothing about it.

To go to TNNA you have to be a vendor or know a vendor (retailer, yarn shop owner, magazine person) basically be in the business to get in. Sucks I know the we common folks can't get in. Knitter's Connection is usually the week before, and there can be a lot of crossover from TNNA so they can get the teachers while they're in town. It's run by Knitters Mercantile, and usually has a decent marketplace that's like 5 bucks to get in, even if you can't take any of the classes. Here's the webpage... it might be something to think about for next year.
