SWG logoOnce again, the Spinning and Weaving Group is offering an extra trade show promotion for its members. Thanks to your feedback from past shows, we are making adjustments to increase interaction in your booth and to encourage more business.

Exhibitors may participate in SWG Bingo by being on the bingo card without providing samples. Samples are great to get into customers' hands, but are optional for exhibitors.

  • Qualified retail buyers will be given a SWG Bingo card that will have participating exhibitor company name and booth on the squares.
  • Retailers will get the Bingo squares signed by the participating vendors in the exhibitor booths. This is your chance to have a meaningful business conversation with current and potential customers.
  • Retailers who get enough squares to win Bingo will return their card to the SWG Booth to enter a prize basket drawing.
  • Please contact Andrea Marquis at or 412-303-4409 to pledge your prize donation for our prize basket drawing!
  • SWG member exhibitors are invited to create a special offer that retailers can only get at the show, by visiting you at your booth with their SWG Bingo card. We recommend that the validity of your special offer extend a week or two past the show, so that you get more orders overall.
  • We will highlight vendor specials, samples, and the Bingo game in the SWG booth and work to drive traffic to you.

    Members not exhibiting are also welcome to participate with show specials or samples.

    If you have any questions or need some help cooking up enticing special offers, please call Andrea Marquis at 412-303-4409 or email

    Pricing is as follows based on your participation level:

    1. Trade Show Exhibitors pay $60 to be listed on the Bingo card. This helps us with our goal to get more retailers into your booth and also underwrites the SWG Booth presence at the show.

    2. Attending the show but not exhibiting? Volunteer to help in the SWG Booth and your price for us to distribute your product samples in the SWG Booth is $70 per Lot (100 samples). For more details about volunteering at the show, contact Andrea Marquis.

    3. Not attending the show but want to send samples? Your price is $80 per Lot (100 samples). This is a good way to experience the value of the show and is only open to SWG members.
    4. If you are not a SWG member, this is the perfect chance to join. Just add $25 to your Bingo fee and we will sign you up as a SWG member.

    Nuts and Bolts

    1. Participants are responsible for packaging their samples, IF you choose to supply them, so that they are attractive and protected. All fiber and dye samples should be in plastic bags. Yarn cards, patterns, and other flat items may be in labeled envelopes or bags and include the name of the product, description of the contents, name of your company and logo, contact information, wholesale pricing, and your trade show booth number (if applicable).

    2. Send your samples and other promotional items to TNNA by May 13th, OR drop off your samples at the Spinning and Weaving Booth by noon on Friday of the trade show. If dropping off, please sign up NOW so we can get you on the bingo card.
