Oh My  how I love to come to this trade show.  As you can see the hotel is arranged around an atrium. The designers set up shop in the front room of their suite and the retailers go from suite to suite, floor to floor to purchase products.

 And here are the products I bought. I did get a little carried away and I sure hope all my customers  like my choices. There are three brand new,  never before seen Ink Circles designs.
I realize the pictures are small but I don't want to show too much. After all I hope you all come to the Open house next weekend ...March 3 and 4 from 10 AM till 6 PM

 I found a few new designers who I had not met before and some whimsical new designs from designers with whose work I am familiar.

Judy from JBW has quite a few new charts our and  so does Lizzie-Kate.
Workbasket, Elizabeth Designs and a few new people are on this table.

Handblessings had a couple of interesting new series and I got more Rainbow Gallery thread!

Rosewood Manor always has a great selection .

 In this shot are some fabulous beaded  needle cases and a fantastic chart that would suit so many of us...The message? Well I can't remember it exactly at the moment  and I have no idea in which bag it is stashed but I will feature it next week when I get home and you will all agree  the sentiment expressed  is suitable for any one of us!  Have I piqued your interest?
See you on the weekend!

Oh, boy this is why I wish I had an LNS!!! But perhaps it is best this way, at least an hour's drive and a toll bridge away from a shop, less temptation. I thought I glimpsed a new addition to Workbasket's Quaker animal series. If that is true, I muct have it, at least.

The charts look wonderful Ann. I wont be out there until after lunch on Saturday as I signed up for a card class without my calender in hand.
Glad you are enjoying your shopping tip.

It all looks wonderful Ann! Wish I could be there for the open house but I have a family commitment. I think a few of my stitching group are planning on making the trip though.
