We’re just back from Columbus, Ohio where we had a booth at the TNNA trade show. When we weren’t eating Jeni’s ice cream tasting yet another amazing new flavor, we were busy talking to people about weaving and spinning. The Zoom Loom was in great demand. We saw strong interest in our Cricket and Flip looms. We noted an uptick in spinning interest.
