Destination Dallas is only 9 days away! I can’t wait to show you everything! There’s over 100 new designs, a new self finishing product that I absolutely love and a few other surprises in store. There will also be a new retailers club offered by any shop throughout the country.
I have spent all summer working on this show. If you’ve been in the shop, you know I haven’t been there too much this summer. Plus, my little guy gets a little tired of hanging out at the shop, even though he basically plays on his computer there which is exactly what he does at home. LOL! But he really hates when I put him to work hanging threads or helping me with a trunk show.
I packed up 8 huge boxes last weekend and FedEx picked them up yesterday.
I can’t even begin to tell you how much work goes into these shows by exhibitors. We have to update prices lists and websites, photograph and edit the new designs, and all the other tedious things we have to do. But it’s not all drudgery . I love creating new designs and stitching the new pieces. It’s so worth it when you open your door in Dallas. There’s an energy at this show that is palpable.
Be sure to stay glued to Needlepoint Nation, my blog and other designers websites and Facebook pages next weekend. I’ll be posting blogs throughout the show. And before you think how the heck is she writing blogs in the middle of the show, I’ll tell you a dirty little secret . . .I write them before hand and schedule them to publish at certain times. I’m good but I’m not that good! LOL!
