more views from Nashville

Yesterday was another full day at market. Here are photos of some who dropped by my room.

Here is Nancy who was the co-founder of The Gentle Art with her friend Catherine Theron. Once Nancy moved to Ohio, she took over the business and ran it for many years. She is now retired, and the business is run by her children. However Nancy still is always ready to help out when here she is at the show.

Later in the day Nancy's son, Jim, who is now running the business stopped by. I thought it would be fun to have him hold my Multiplication Table Examplar since the model uses his Gentle Art Sampler Threads.

Another person who stopped by was Naomi of Stitches and Spices in Australia. Stitches and Spices specialized in overdyed threads and linens.

Pam, 3 Stitches, Spring, Texas Lindy, The Silver Needle, Tulsa, Oklahoma Linda, House of Stitches, La Porte, Indiana Jeannine, Acorns and Threads, Portland, Oregon
Deb, Stitches N Things, Fenton, Michigan

We got partially packed up last night before going downstairs to join a bunch of friends for what has become an annual tradition, a pizza party. After breakfast this morning, we'll load the rental van and head back to Cincinnati.

I hope to post more photos tomorrow...this time of some of my designer friends who were also on the fourth floor.

I loved to see the picture of Deb's, I order quite a bit for her, as I live in U.K. there is no chance I would ever get to the shop to met her. Thank you
