TNNA was fantastic this year again. We are always impressed with the professionalism and spirit in the US yarn market and this proved to be the case this year again. We exhibit in the booth next to our US distributor Classic Elite and really enjoyed the camaraderie of being part of this bigger team. With an amazing team of sales reps across the USA working with Classic Elite has really helped us grow our US presence and it was wonderful to spend time with the many shop owners now stocking MillaMia who visited the show this year.

TNNA is also an opportunity to catch up with friends from the UK community who were also exhibiting or visiting. We bumped into Verity from Baa Ram Ewe and Titus Yarns already on the plane on the way into Columbus (and again on the way home!) and also Jenny from Fyberspates, Rachel (Rachel Coopey knits). I also enjoyed getting to know Carol Feller a bit better during a quiet part of the show. It's not just the independents that visit from the UK however - established operators like Ramsdens, Bretts and Sirdar are also making big inroads into the US market which is a great testament to our industry.
