Today is our last day in San Deigo; this afternoon we get on the road again and meet up for an event at Creative Ewe in Santa Clarita Tuesday evening.
We had expected to be dealing with heavy rain here in CA, but so far it has been delightful! The sunrise this morning makes us want to stay longer!
It was such a great TNNA show. Retailers were excited about seeing all the vendors; we vendors were so happy to spend some time with our customers. Having them see finished garments is important – then they can tell their knitters what the pieces looked like IN PERSON! It makes the patterns come alive like nothing else.
Besides all the “glamorous” parts of being at a trade show (trying new restaurants; seeing knitting-world celebrities; cooking up new projects with our trade show buddies), it’s a lot of hard work too.
There were only three of us to tear down the booth this year, three “middle aged” women. Three tired “middle aged” women. I won’t lie and say it was easy, but we tucked away our important booth components for their safe journey home. And Heather treated the team to massages afterwards. Ahhhhh.
It was a nice way to end the southernmost portion of our adventure.
