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 needed...so 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.

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.
