Long time no see!
This week we’ve been out in Schaumburg Illinois (near Chicago), at Stitches Midwest! There’re over a hundred vendors here, and we’ve been having a great time making connections with vendors and buyers alike. Stephen West visited our booth today, which was very exciting! We really like how our booth is set up, and it’s been such a thrill to be in such an energetic environment with all these people who are just as excited about yarn as we are! Here are some photos for those of you watching from home
Before we got to setting up the booth, we drove over to Ikea (both Diane and Anthony’s first time inside of one!) and got some additional items we needed for set up
After that, it was off to the convention center to set up our booth! It was a lot of work, but it was worth it (despite what Amy and Anthony’s faces might imply). Here’s our booth at about half-way set up
We had some last-minute labeling to do, but we had a fun time at it!
Here’s another shot of our booth- this was on the first day that the floor opened up for sales
Look at all the people waiting to get in! The MC for the hall was a hoot, and everyone was really excited to get in
And here we are making sales at our booth
We’ve been having a great time so far at Stitches Midwest, and hope that the rest of the weekend goes just as well!
A big thank you to everyone who’ve helped us get to where we are today, and we look forward to the adventures that Lady Dye Yarns will go on in the future!
