Just to be clear, TNNA has absolutely nothing to do with the similar sounding t&a. Although, several times this weekend we did accidentally say TNA instead of TNNA. There's nothing sexy about this trade show put on by the National Needlearts Association, held in San Diego. Well, that's not entirely true, the amount of yarn, draped over every imaginable surface, in every color, made of everything from real fur (yes, real fur) to the more traditional cashmere (which we heard Martha Stewart is a fan of) to organic cotton, is borderline obscene. And on the first day there we did meet Domiknitrix, a San Francisco local, signing her new book. She definitely stood out on the trade floorshow with her high heels and whip.
TNNA is an industry show and since you couldn't get in without being a vendor, storeowner or somehow affiliated with the industry, we'll let you in on the good stuff you missed.
