TNNA, No Way!

It's official, our booth at The National NeedleArts Association is up, and we have the pictures to prove it. Click on the image to the right to get up to the minute images straight from Marjorie's iPhone.

Better yet, just come visit us in person at TNNA in Long Beach, California. The picture quality is better that way anyway. We snagged booth number 747, like the airplane you should be boarding right now so as not to miss a minute of National NeedArts madness.

Dog Day Morning

We promised posts on yarn trends, sharing our small-business experiences, and Shibui Shenanigans. This post is decidedly the latter...

because the adults are on vacation! That is, if you consider toiling to configure, construct, and captain the finest booth TNNA has ever seen to be a vacation (we certainly do).

One of our employees has thus seen fit to partake in the annual "Bring Your Dog to the Office of a Yarn Wholesaler Day". Not just any dog either: Jake will steal your heart and come back for your sanity.

After a freak power outage yesterday, we can all use a little puppy love. The effect of cuteness and licks-to-the-face on productivity remaines to be seen.

Hello World!

ShibuiBlog becomes self-aware at 2:14 AM. Pacific Time, January 7th, 2010. 

But what does this mean for you? We'll be crunching numbers to determine the hottest new yarns from Shibui and our partners. From trade shows to inter-office shenanigans, you'll never miss a beat in the exciting world of yarn distribution. 

We hope this 'blog will also become a resource for other small-businesses, as we share the triumphs and tribulations of running our own. Shibuiknits owes much of its success to the hard-working (and fashionable!) staff here, and this site will give them a forum to share their secrets as well. 

If you have any questions for us, any suggestions for things you'd like to see on ShibuiBlog, or are just feeling lonely on a Friday night, please give us a shout at blog@shibuiknits.com.
