Knit & Crochet Show and Steven's KARE 11 appearance

A week has gone by since the Knit and Crochet Show and I am FINALLY sitting down to tell you all about it!  What a weekend!  Everyone worked so hard and Steven and I were so proud of our team!  The shops wowed the attendees who were brave enough to venture out to Rosemount and South Minneapolis.  We made new best friends from all over the country! 
We were very proud of our booths - we had fun transforming them from trade show boring to StevenBe fabulous.
This was our set up for the KARE 11 interview.  If you were up at 5:45am Friday, August 29th and you were watching KARE 11 you saw Steven discuss his vision for knitting and crocheting.
We had to get up at 3:30am to get ready for the shoot.  It takes allot of work to be fabulous!  Steven is WAY more fabulous than myself!

Jeremy is a crocheted tam.  He is going to KILL me for posting that picture!  Love your face, Jeremy!

Here is Dave from KARE 11 prepping for the interview.
Here is Dave knitting!  Yes, we got him knitting.  We are waiting for the clip of the interview, so watch for that to be posted soon!  After the interview, the vendor market opened to the public. We had fun meeting everyone from MN and from all around the country.  The show ended at 6pm and then Steven and I attended the dinner and fashion show.  Steven hosted the fashion show with Lily Chin.  She is something else, let me tell you!  It was VERY entertaining having them host together.  Here Steven and I are catching a nap in between the show and dinner.  We were TIRED!
 Thank you to everyone that came out to support us!  We hope you had as much fun as we did!  Thank you to all the authors who had book signings at our booth - Gwen Bortner, Edie Eckman, Pauline Turner, Tove Fevang , and Maire Treanor!  It was great to meet all of you and we hope to have you at our shop again soon!  A HUGE thank you to all our staff that helped make the weekend possible!  THANK YOU AND GOOD NIGHT!

Three friends from CGOA and I visited the Minneapolis Steven Be shop. Oh my, was it fabulous! Your booth at the Knit and Crochet Show was one of my favorites, as evidenced by how many things I purchased from you.

I've posted a photo tour of the shop on the Crochetville website, with encouragement for anyone who lives anywhere near to stop by the store!
