I don't always follow orders, but sometimes I do. Thus the photo.
Earlier in June I had my first opportunity to visit TNNA's market in Washington DC.
This is an open-only to the trade market, public not allowed. It's for retailers and wholesalers.
I attended wearing two hats - one as a shop employee and one as a product reviewer for Needlepointers magazine, the American Needlepoint Guild's magazine for members. I have a partner in the reviewing enterprise and she recently started working where I work so we road the Metro in together.
Not a huge show for needlepoint, I still walked my feet off. My favorite part was putting faces to names that I call at work. Plus seeing new canvases for the first time.
I apologize that I had absolutely no time to take photos other than my selfie.
