#stitchlove at TNNA

Two weeks ago, we hosted #stitchlove, a community art project, at the TNNA Summer trade show in Columbus, OH. After a year of planning and plotting, it was so amazing to see everything come together! The swatches were mostly from my own design swatch drawer, along with zoom loom squares and swatches from Stefanie and Ben. (To read more about how #stitchlove started, read this blog post about #stitchlove).

Besides seeing all of the hard work from the Stitchcraft team come to fruition, it was personally gratifying to witness our stitching community share their love for our wall. So many people spent the time to make their own swatch for the wall, or personalized one of our pre-made swatches. Thank you to everyone who contributed!

Here’s a time-lapse video Ben made of putting the #stitchove wall together during setup.


And here are just a few of the things people shared on our wall, keep an eye out on our social media where we’ll be posting more of the beautiful comments people shared on #stitchlove.

So what’s next for #stitchlove? We’d love to share this project with more knitters – email mari@stitchcraftmarketing.com if you would like to see #stitchlove come to your community fiber festival!
