Vogue Live

Vogue Live was a blast! It was great to see so many familiar faces and to meet so many new friends. It was so exciting to meet Norah Gaughan and having her do a book signing in our booth. Check out the picture of Kim and Norah from our facebook wall.

Our booth was opposite Stitch Red, a newly formed partnership between manufacturers and retailers in the knitting industry. Stitch Red is working to bring attention to heart disease in woman. Watch our blog for information on upcoming Stitch Red events at Knit!
