I'm home from my first VKL NYC, and I'm struggling to figure out where to start. This experience has been like no other for me. The 10th Anniversary of this NYC event was my very first time attending, and it was my first time vending at such a huge fiber event. What should I tell you about first...the People? ...Being part of the VKL Launch Pad program? ...the Inspiration and Joy?
Over the weekend, Jilly & Kiddles had it's first trunk show. What an fun experience!
I've been preparing for this for weeks, dyeing lots of extra yarn and deciding how I'd like my popup shop to look. There was a lot to do, but I think it went really well. I enjoyed meeting so many new people and getting to show off my yarn in person. My husband Brian came with me to help with checkout, and I'm so glad he did. Without him, it would certainly have been much more chaotic. I think we pretty much worked out the kinks. Plus, he provides some stress relief, for sure. Here he is trying on a slouchy hat for some customers for laughs. I can't thank him enough.
