We're baaaack! Stitches Midwest Recap!

Another Stitches has come and gone...we really enjoyed ourselves in Schaumburg, IL! The mid-western knitters, crocheters and spinners were wonderful. We met people from Indiana, Wisconsin, Nebraska, Ohio, and of course many locals! All three of us (me, Laura and Sandy) were overwhelmed by the support from the needlearts community. Many women shared their stories with us (some heart breaking and some full of hope), including one wonderful woman who had had her heart removed and put back to save her life. Here's a small photo journal of our time at Stitches Midwest! 

Stitch Red booth
Our very red booth was certainly eye catching to all who walked by! We had a great Knit Red display, too. It paid off because we sold over 100 copies of Knit Red...Laura's hand started to cramp from all the autographs!

Jimmy & Lori of Yarn Pop
What would Stitches Midwest be without some business in the making? And some knitting, too! I promise that wine is heart-healthy (it can improve HDL cholesterol levels...the good kind of cholesterol!)

Knitting, knitting and more knitting! Sandy started (and finished) her mini red dress in Alpaca Sox while we were at the show. This kit was a hot product!

We're so glad we went! Next up: VK Live (Chicago, IL) and Stitches East (Hartford, CT)
