Live Blog NNEP Embroidery Mart – Day 1

9:40 a.m. – The show is just starting.  Our rooms are packed with bargains and we’re ready to sell.   We’ve got bargain thread, backing, bobbins, thread palettes and more.  Also stop by and see Tom in the Sublimation suite for all your sublimation needs.

9:51 a.m.  Both rooms are rocking.  Love to watch the Toms at work.  They’re very knowledgeable about our products.

11:45 a.m.  Most popular thing so far, the bargain thread bins.  People love the colors.  Backing is going fast too.

12:10 p.m.  So much fun introducing people to Iris thread.  Talking colors is great.  I love it when someone finds the exact color that they needed.  Also cool seeing what people are embroidering.

1:05 p.m.  Got a nice lesson in sublimation techniques from Tom Chambers our sublimation expert.  I learn something new from him every time we do a show together.

2:04 p.m.  One thing about these shows, it’s hard to eat lunch and take bathroom breaks.  It’s unromantic to admit it, but people do need to do both.

3:07 p.m.  Been meeting a lot of our current customers.  So fun to be able to put a face to the name.

3:49 p.m. Finally had lunch.  Kind of thinking I should have just waited until dinner now.  Still is nice to eat something.

4:07 p.m.  Things are starting to slow down a little.  I think people are starting to tire out.

4:24 p.m. One interesting thing about a hotel with an atrium, people think nothing of yelling down to people on other floors.

4:39 p.m.  Getting prepared for tomorrow.  Sold a lot of stuff and made a lot of good contacts today.  I’m excited to see what tomorrow will bring.
