The TNNA 2017 NeedleArts Summer Trade Show, taking place June 10-12, 2017 in Columbus, Ohio, is the perfect place for needlearts professionals to learn about the newest products and techniques in the industry!

But hurry, once a class is sold out, it will no longer be available for selection.

Today's spotlight is on classes being taught by Nancy Shroyer. Read on below for a teaser of Nancy's classes and her thoughts on the importance of education for needlearts professionals.

  • How To Select Color Palettes for Knitting and Other Fiber Arts | Friday, June 9  | 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.



We asked Nancy to share her insights on needlearts and business education, as well as its value to members of our industry.

Have you taught classes at previous TNNA trade shows?

Nancy:  Yes, I have taught the past two years; before that, I was an exhibitor for 15 years (Nancy’s Knit Knacks).

I love teaching and sharing my love of knitting with anyone and everyone. When I work with the shop owners, it is an opportunity to touch even more people because I encourage them to take what I teach them back to their classes. I offer my patterns to use to make it easier for them. It’s all about sharing the love.

Why should attendees consider registering for your classes at the TNNA Summer Trade Show?

NancyI worked in yarn shops for about 9 years, and one of my best friends owns a yarn shop, so I am familiar with making my classes relevant to shop owners, not just students.

Why do you think education is an important part of attending the Summer Trade Show?

NancyI think the more shop owners know about knitting and how new concepts and ideas can excite their customers, the more successful they will be.

Aside from education, what else are you looking forward to at the Summer Trade Show?

NancySince I was an exhibitor for years, I have lots of friends from all parts of TNNA and love seeing what they are doing now.  I also get inspiration from what is new and different. And I get to see my daughter, Lisa who works for Interweave.

When preparing for your trip to the Summer Trade Show, what's the one item you can't forget to pack?

My knitting! No matter the trip or the reason, that is the first thing I think about packing.
