Marly Bird organized a Designer Dinner for Friday night at TNNA. 50-60 of the biggest names in the industry gathered to have fun and get acquainted. Benjamin Levisay, from XRX Publishing and Knitter's Magazine (and the organizer of the STITCHES events across the country) was the primary sponsor of the night. XRX Publishing provided all the designers with a copy of Gwen Bortner's Book, Entree to Entrelac.
Other sponsors of the night were: (I know I'm going to forget someone important.. ugh) but here they are in no particular order...
Caron Yarn and Vickie Howell's yarn line
Bijou Basin Ranch
Buffalo Wool Yarn Co
Random House Books
Wacky Woolies/Dublin Gift Company
I love all my great gift goodies, but the Zuma Namaste Bag in Peacock is the one that made me squeal with delight.
