TNNA, or The National Needlework Association show happened this past weekend. It’s a wholesale show for yarn shops to see and buy yarn for the fall season. Also attending are designers, publishers and loads of other yarny and fuzzy types. Amy, Kate and I were all there representing Knitty and eating legendary Jenni’s ice cream.
Spinning has been creeping slowly into this show. There are classes in adding spinning to your knitting shop and more and more exhibitors have fiber – Yay!
There was a lot of gorgeous fiber (and fiber folk) at the show; I took a few photos with my phone here’s a peek:
Most of these companies only sell wholesale, check with your local spinning or knitting shop to see if they currently or soon will carry them.

Frabjous Fibers Muffin Tops. They had all kinds of great packaging that works in yarn stores
Anzula has beautiful fibers and colors, I am deeply smitten.
My favorite new fiber exhibitor was Lucky Cat Craft. She has lots of unique luxury blends.
My brain is full and excited by all of things I saw and all of the ideas Amy, Kate and I came up with for Knitty and Knittyspin. But before I get started on the new, I have to catch up on email.
