TNNA Preview Promenade – See What’s New Before the Show!

Lazies, Look what I found over at the TNNA Preview Promenade. I want to make one of Carol Ventura’s to-die-for Tapestry Crochet felted bowls now!

Felted Bowls TNNA

The National NeedleArts Association (TNNA) hosts another spectacular trade show for the needle arts beginning late next week. As a lead-up to that show, the Designers & Teachers of The National Needlework Association have put together a ‘Preview Promenade’ to give the attendees (and the rest of us) an advance look at each of their new creations.

Since I won’t be attending TNNA, I would have missed this debut had it not been for the Promenade. The picture alone makes me want to learn how to do tapestry crochet. Wait until you see all the items in the preview!

Here’s more from the TNNA Preview Promenade:
‘We know you are busy, so we hope by providing a central point for you to “see the pre-show” it will be possible for you to stop by as you wander the web and find out about some of the “new stuff” both products & services that will be on display.’

Activity on a trade show floor can be overwhelming. And the face-to-face time between companies and buyers is never as much as we would all prefer. The Preview Promenade offers one spot on the web where companies can debut their new products and the wonderful stories behind them.

January 13 – 15, 2007, San Diego Convention Center, San Diego, California
The largest show of its kind, TNNA houses the most unique and creative designs in needlepoint, spectacular colors and fibers in handknitting yarns, diverse selections of embroidery, crochet and counted thread supplies and needleart accessories.

My focus is in quilting, so I have not exhibited at TNNA, but some of my products (Bag-E-Bottoms for felted bags) are a good fit and are often represented by a few exhibitors (Checker Distributors, Wandering Wolf, Leisure Arts). 

TNNA’s website hosts some fantastic information not to be missed by anyone interesting in needle arts.

Kudos to the Designers & Teachers of The National Needlework Association for organizing and sharing this fabulous preview.
