I'm Home.... ahhh....

Oh my gosh, what a fabulous market! what a fabulous retreat at NIAH. All in all a terrific week. I am just posting a quick note to let you know I am home from the Nashville Needlework market, do check with your local needlework shop for what's new from JDD- we had a wonderful time at market. I arrived on Thursday from LA - I had been visiting my friend after the event in San Francisco and then traveled to Nashville. A big hug from Tina and Teri from Shepherd's Bush at the airport as we came in the same time. We toodled to the grocery store and got a few items on our list for the fridge and the booth. A lovely dinner out with Ann and Pat from R&R - and their awesome helpers Cheryl and Norma and the SB gals and then for me it was get my boxes from Lindy from The Silver Needle - and sort through getting my stuff ready to take to the class in the am for the shop owners! It was for Stitch with the designers morning and what a treat to see everyone again. Most of Friday after the brief class period was setting up the booth.... then at 5:00 down to the ballroom for the Make it Take it - it was pandemonium - wonderful fun.... and our little quaker spring pincushions were nabbed up quickly much to my delight. The little flower stand, the scissors fob and the pincushion were fun to stitch.

Saturday and Sunday we sold stuff!! and that is great! Thank you shop owners for your support - I appreicate the time and effort it takes to come to the show - and the best part -to get to visit with each of you, too bad it is never longer than a quick minute but delightful nevertheless. 9 out of 10 of my boxes arrived.... too bad about the 10th - in it was my Isle of Hope Sampler - but the distributors will have this - so that bring me to the new items..... I will finish getting myself sorted from the chaos and will post pictures soon.

Fondly, jeannette
