Friday, January 26


NeedleArts Explosion | 12:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Dress up the Winter Market! Beginning Friday afternoon, TNNA invites you to display your yarn and/or needlepoint designs throughout the hotel lobby. From light poles to palm tree trunks, and slated backs walls to miniature holiday trees – the possibilities to creatively display your work are endless! To participate, please email Prop measurements will be provided in advance.


Opening Reception | 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.

The TNNA Winter Market officially kicks off Friday evening with the Opening Reception! Join us for a fun evening featuring Sip & Stitch, as well as run-ins with some of Hollywood’s (kind of) elite. Celebrity impersonators will join in on the fun, so don’t miss your chance for photo ops with some of your favorite big-screen lookalikes!

Friday Preview | 6:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.

Want a sneak peek of products before the Winter Market even opens on Saturday morning? Join us for a walk-through of wholesalers’ showrooms and booths on Friday evening, after the conclusion of the Opening Reception and Sip & Stitch. During Friday Preview, exhibiting wholesalers will offer samples and discounts for you to consider before making purchases during regular Market hours. This will also be an opportune time to get started on your voting card (see Window/Booth Design section below for more information on voting). Participating showroom wholesalers will have their room doors open during Preview – rooms with closed doors are not participating.


Make It and Wear It | 5:30 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.

Have a hand-made creation that you’re proud of? Show it off by wearing it to Friday evening’s events! Make It and Wear It is the perfect opportunity for retailers to relax, enjoy a drink, and get up-close and personal with your designs and execution! To participate in this free event, please email your item information to Your item will be included in a PDF listing of what retailers can expect at the opening event.

Happy Hour is the best hour! Join TNNA and fellow attendees on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings, for a complimentary happy hour in the Embassy Suites bar and lobby. Enjoy a selection of beer, wine, cocktails, and light snacks while you mix and mingle with other attendees. Be sure to bring any current projects with you – Sip & Stitch has been specifically designed for you to exchange ideas, see what others are working on, and get advice on technical stitch problems you may be trying to solve!


Window/Booth Design

Make a great first impression on retailers by decking out your exhibit space! If you are a wholesaler exhibiting in a room suite, we encourage you to decorate your window(s) or set up a window display where items will easily be seen. If you’re exhibiting in a booth, create a bold layout to capture the attention of those walking around. Retailers will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite creative room suite/booth setup on the voting card handed out at registration. The Window/Booth Design is a great opportunity to get retailers excited about your products, especially if you are not participating in Friday Preview! There is no cost to participate.
