TNNA 2017 – In pictures

Whew! We’re back home after another exciting trip to the Summer TNNA show in Columbus, Ohio. TNNA is one of the largest industry trade shows of the year where retailers, wholesalers, manufacturers, publishers, and designers all come together to show and discover new products, designs, trends, and techniques.  We were on our usual mission to bring the latest and greatest on the knit, crochet, and fiber scene back to Espace Tricot – and I think we were successful! We had such an amazing time reconnecting with old friends in the industry and making many new ones and had great fun spending money on Fall orders (how could we not?!). It was especially nice (and unbelievably helpful) to have Francoise and Amalia along for the ride.  Some fabulous new stuff will be making its way into the shop for the Fall and we can’t wait to share it with you all! In the meantime, here’s a visual summary of our trip in photos – from airport terminal and back again. Needless to say, there are so many pictures we missed taking, of wonderful people and beautiful products, but isn’t that always the way? In any case, these will hopefully give you a sense of the positive energy, camaraderie, and mutual support that are so much a part of this annual event.

Enjoy!

    What a great TNNA! Thanks for sharing the photos-I’m hoping ALL of the items in the photos make their way onto the podcast and into the shop! I have a rush of ‘must have all the things’ right now…especially the Alpaca wet/dry bag! Swoon
