My buddy Marly of Yarnthing podcast fame always does the grunt work to put together a dinner at TNNA for designers, editors, and other yarny folks. I walked over to the event with Barb Bettegnies, editor of Creative Knitting magazine.
Guess what made her newsletter this week? Click here to read all about it!
While you are clicking around, please do me a favor and check out the needlepoint contest entries at Gone Stitching. Eleven canvases are entered, including mine (pssst, it's number 10!), and this is the people's choice award - real judging will happen later in the summer. And I know I don't have a prayer there, thus my inappropriate internet begging for votes.
Truthfully I won't even mind (much) if you vote for someone else. But we are trying to get some web traffic over there for the sponsors, Gone Stitching and Planet Earth Fiber, so that more people will enter next year. I have to think that anyone with even vaguely needlepoint-ish aspirations will look at my entry and think "Hey, I could beat her next year!"
I know, another post with no photos. But I am working on that, I promise!
This week I am in Missouri, teaching at A New Yarn in Springfield on Thursday, and Kirkwood Knittery in St. Louis. I believe there are a few spots left in each of my classes, so if you are in the area, check them out!
