TNNA Recap

TNNA Weekend

This may or may not have been one of the craziest Vegas weekends all of us at Jimmy Beans have had in quite some time. TNNA Weekend was filled with interviews, discovering new brands and visiting some of our very favorites! If you aren't quite sure what TNNA is, it stands for The National Needlearts Association. Twice a year, everyone in the needlearts industry gets together to showcase new and exciting additions to their brands so that we may all keep advancing in our craft! 

Jeff, Jenny, Lauren and Shannon on the way to TNNA! ... (P.S. That backpack Jeff is holding weight about 50 pounds. Bless his heart for carrying it around all weekend!)

Handmade Getaway
It was straight to work once we touched down in Vegas. First, we visited one of our very favorite friends, Jacqueline of Soak! She helped us film a tutorial on how to use Soak and man, that stuff is ahhh-mazing! Have you tried it before?? The Yuzu scent is my favorite. So fresh and so clean! Jacqueline has another exciting project coming up with Karyn Valino. Their new book Handmade Getaway is a project based book with amazing photography and projects that guides you from start to finish.


Vegas Nights Shawl
You may have even tuned in to our Facebook live sessions! We sat down with the lovely ladies of Lorna's Laces, Anzula, Sweet Georgia, Knit One Crochet Too, and Oink Pigments to talk about their collaboration on the Vegas Nights Shawl designed by OwlCat Designs. The only thing I can say is that these women are not only incredibly talented in their craft but are some of the most genuine people in existence. If you missed that conversation, click here to listen to what they said about working together. 

We also had the amazing chance to sit down with Kersti of Koigu. You may recognize her from Koigu Magazines! Check out the video to get some insight to the brand! Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube Channel for more 'Meet The Makers videos to come!'

P.S. We have some exciting news coming up with Koigu so be sure to tune in to our social media channels on Monday to see what we've got happening! 

As I mentioned earlier, we not only sat down with old friends, but new favorites as well! We are super-duper-uper excited about what 2018 is going to bring and cant wait for you guys to see either!
