We had another great time at the TKGA show in Manchester New Hampshire this past July. We ended up with a fairly large booth and filed it with such goodies as the Noro Gaughan Volume 3 trunk show, a wonderful Prism Trunk show, a Dream in Color trunk show with a huge selection of garments, a Cherry Tree Hill trunk show, new books and garments from Filatura/Tahki, fabulous new designs from Tonia Barry (several in the fashion show), and great new sock yarns from Sereknity, Ivy Brambles and Indie Dyer! All this was topped off with a Kauni display featuring the Swallowtail shawl by Evelyn Clark, this particular example (pictured) loaned by Gina House, thanks Gina.
There was a few less vendors than last year, but those that were present more than made up for this, I particularly liked Galina's wonderful display of Russian shawls, beautifully displayed. She will be back to give another lace class at our Derry shop next year.
The fashion show and dinner was quite the show. We were simply amazed by some of the designs, many of these being crochet. I wish I had taken some photographs of some of these stunning garments but did not have my camera with me at the time. We look forward to many more of these shows and hope many of you can join us at the next one!
