Knit and Crochet Show, 2015, Saturday night

Saturday night was the Fashion Show for CGOA. Annie's was a sponsor of the event. Annie's is the publisher of Crochet! magazine, Crochet World, and five other magazines. Plus they sell yarn, have online classes and more. All the attendees at the fashion show and banquet received an Annie's mug that said, "To crochet or not to crochet - what a silly question" plus a free pattern and a ball of yarn that could be used to make the pattern.

Jackie and I assembled all the mugs Saturday afternoon before the banquet. Isn't the array pretty?

Here, Susan Sullivan, who works for Annie's and is the current President of the CGOA is on stage doing her opening remarks and I'm about to go on as emcee of the fashion show.

Doris Chan illustrates how her pattern can be adapted to fit everyone! I'm on the far left.
 

Me at the podium for the 2nd year in a row. It's amazingly flattering to be asked back again.
