Countdown to TNNA Winter 2013

It’s hard to believe that in just a few weeks Norah, Amanda and I will be on our way to sunny Long Beach, California.  We won’t be wasting any time on the ocean, though.  We’ll be at The National Needlearts Association’s annual winter trade show.

For five weeks, Berroco was lucky enough to work with John Yonda, David Meaden & Richard Earley.  None of these men had been to a yarn warehouse before, but they mastered many of the tasks required to package and ship our products to all of our retail stores.
