If you follow me on social media you already know I will be working at The BagSmith booth tomorrow πŸ’ƒ and today was setup day. The preparation before the party day, the build shelves and unpack boxes day and what a day it was.

I think I told you all about my subway phobia, πŸ‘€ well how about it was only one stop on the train I was accustomed to taking. Woot woot! The hotel sits smack in the middle of time square and after asking the kind police officers which way to go, I found it in no time. I ran into Sharon from Knitting Abacus, I will be in her booth on Sunday.
I walk into the hotel and this is the first thing I see

I met a designer that I adore, Terri Hampton-Rosenthal. When I saw her, I was all ready to introduce myself and she said “I’d know that hair any where” and gave me the biggest hug ☺️ I love my fiber friends.
