TNNA Columbus 2012

June 28

I just got back from TNNA. That, in industry jargon, is the show put on twice a year by The National Needlearts Association. It’s where yarn manufacturers show off their new lines to shop owners, and where publishers show off their titles. It’s pretty much like a giant kindergarten, where we all get to see our friends in the industry. We have parties. We play (with yarn, mostly). And like little kids, we spend a great deal of time talking about and indulging in ice cream. It’s hilarious to follow the Tweets from the people attending the show – a huge percentage talk about what flavor they’re having at the aptly named Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream near the convention center.

The most exciting part of TNNA for me, besides seeing my buddies of course, was the poster in the Cooperative Press booth showing photos from my upcoming book. Shannon Okey (in the photo below) and her team work very hard to bring excellent books to the market, and I’m thrilled that my Reversible Scarves: Curing the Wrong Side Blues will be among them.

I’m working with CP’s miracle-worker-Assistant-Editor Elizabeth Green Musselman to comb through every detail of the book to get it ready for publication. It won’t be long now!
