2008 Knit and Crochet Show

The 2008 Knit and Crochet Show was a huge success for us! I'm so glad that we decided to participate in the show this year. I heard people say over and over, "I've never heard of The Naked Sheep, I'll have to come visit your shop". And that's exactly what we were hoping for! We passed out hundreds of fliers with the shop info, and a 10% off coupon attached.

We also had fun seeing all our friends at the show! Thanks for stopping by to say "hi" and show us your support! You are greatly appreciated!

I was so happy with the way our booth came together; we had such a colorful and cheerful space. A great big THANK YOU to the vendors who were represented at The Naked Sheep's booth:
Bob and Meghan, The Spinner's Web
Sharon, Stitchjones
Kevin and Laurie, Woolpets
Karie, Silverpurl
LaVon, Bead & Purl
Bradley, Sheep Thoughts
Universal Yarn
All of these great companies are represented at The Naked Sheep Knit Shop year round! Stop by and check out what they have to offer!

Laurie's book signing of Wool Pets in our booth on Saturday afternoon went fabulously. She signed many books, and demonstrated needle felting. It drew quite a crowd. We enjoyed spending some time with Laurie and her husband, Kevin, on Friday evening.

Bob and Meghan were troopers and spent hours demonstrating at their spinning wheel. What a great team! Their display of handspun and handpainted yarns was simply stupendous! And we moved that entire lovely display to The Naked Sheep. So if you didn't get a chance to come to the show, stop by and feel and touch and even smell their lovely yarns! There is plenty for everyone to take a skein home!

And a special thanks to Bradley, with whom I couldn't live without! What a huge help and support he was, as always! And ever the entertainer! He can always make me smile. Thanks, honey!

Two fun weekends in a row!

Brad and I had a fun and relaxing time away this past weekend. We went to the Hotel Oregon in McMinnville with friends for a couple nights. It's located in the heart of downtown McMinville, which is full of fun little shops, restaurants and interesting things to look at.

We got all rested up for this coming weekend, the big Knit and Crochet Show here in Portland at the Convention Center. We are busy working out all the last minute details of getting ready; ordering a banner, printing up coupons, pricing product, etc.

We'll be at booth #415, and we would love for you to stop by and say "Hello!"
