If you don’t know, TNNA is the big market for yarn shops, and this year it is held in DC the 2nd weekend in June. When Mom told me that Heidi Hennessy, of Lux Adorna Knits, called and was planning to stay a few days in Frederick before TNNA, I couldn’t believe it. Mom said “she wants to come do something special for our customers.” How spectacular is that?
I first met Heidi at Stitches West back in 2014 when she was Pepperberry Knits. I was lured in by her bright and cherry booth. She had just gotten her own milling machine which she named “Money Penny” and said she was ready to take wholesale orders. For reasons I won’t get into here, we didn’t bring Pepperberry in right away. We were excited to bring Lux Adorna Knits in last fall. As we thought, customers really really like knitting with this 100% cashmere. It is a special yarn which usually calls for special projects. Projects like joji’s 3 Color Cashmere Cowl and Peeping Cowl are the first that come to mind.
So Tuesday Night June 7th, Heidi will be in the shop from 6pm till 9pm. She is bringing new pairings called Menage A Trios, and Fun Size Braid Bundles in NEW colors. You will get the first peak since these are new for the TNNA event.
We will have some snacks and wine too! So stop in and let’s give Heidi a big East Coast welcome!
