The first day at Stitches was a whirlwind of energy and excitement. Kristin said she felt like a little kid at Disneyland with all the yarn, fiber and fiber arts enthusiasts. The show was really, really busy. In fact Jody and our crew had to park 4 blocks away and make the hike back to the convention center. Kristin is due in a couple of weeks but she’s a trooper and made the hike along with the rest of us.
Lot’s of folks noticed the Alpaca Direct ambassador shirts and wanted to participate in the photo contest we set up on our Facebook page.
Tons of great yarn and fiber for everyone! This yarn from Apple Tree knits was almost edible!
We finished out the date with a little rest and then Kristin won a door prize on the way home!
We love Stitches Marketplace as much as everyone. With our store and warehouse now in North Idaho the journey is over 900 miles. So… this year we wanted everyone to know our hearts and minds are with you even though we won’t have a booth at the show. Instead we have Alpaca Direct ‘Ambassadors’ enjoying the show this weekend and spreading the word about us. These ambassadors are wearing one of our new “I Luv Alpaca Direct’ t-shirts and also earn a $20 gift card just for sharing their Luv with the crowd at Stitches! If you would like to be an ambassador we have a few shirts remaining so just email us and we’ll tell you the secret location (booth) to pick up your shirt at the show. As part of the contest we’re running, other folks attending Stitches can enter a ‘Selfie Photo Contest’ where they take a picture of themselves with one of the ambassadors (That’s you!) wearing a shirt and post a comment. There will be a $100 gift card to the person with the most votes!
Hey folks…that can pay for a nice stash of new yarn!!!
Here’s Jody our first Ambassador who will be hitting the show floor on Friday morning. Look how great she looks in this nice T-Shirt!
