Not too many people in the knitting world are actually famous in real life, but we did reconnect at TNNA with some designers, shop owners and authors who are friends of ours that you may want to catch up on.
It was fun to see Melissa Leapman, now an actual Knitting Diva based in NYC who worked with Cheryl on one of their first Knitter’s Magazine projects back in 1999!
Debbie Macomber also came into the booth for a hug and to congratulate Cheryl on The Broken Circle and even bought a Potluck kit.
Out in the lobby, we found Sally Melville, whom Cheryl had not seen at a show in years. Sally has finished writing her last book with her daughter and is now returning to the teaching world. Hello Sally!
As always, Steven Be was eccentrically dressed, and his mother Christa was still getting around well enough to stand in for a photo at the fashion show.
Julia, the prime minister of Patternfish was easy to spot in the bar with her fishies and she has a lot of new features in store for PDF purchasers everywhere this fall.
