Cooperative Press at Sock Summit July 21 2011 1 Comment

Less than a week 'til we head to Portland for Sock Summit! You'll find us in booth #206, and oh boy do we have some cool stuff for you! First of all, there's the limited edition project bags. Only 100 were made, and they are spectacular. We licensed art from one of my favorite artists, Camilla d'Errico, and we've been filling the bags with the greatest possible swag, both from CP and from our friends. One of the items in there, a custom "Knitgrrl"-scented lotion bar by our local soap & lotion queen Melissa at Terra Verde Handmade, is so yummy! There's also Heel foot cream, yarn, stitch markers, coupons, buttons, tools, you name it! We've been posting photos as we go along here. If you're not going to Summit but want a bag, make friends with someone in this thread on the CP Ravelry group, or try posting to the Facebook event page. Next up -- booth display fun! Who needs ordinary sock blockers to display items from our upcoming books? NOT US. So we had Lynne from Seven Yaks, another local artist, make sock blockers with our logo on them. If you need ANY blockers, Lynne's your go-to person. Check out her mitten blockers, for example. Here's the laser cutting out our blockers and putting our logo on (you can see the gears very faintly at the top, no?): We can't wait to see you all in booth #206 next week!
