About Trunk Shows
Counted-thread trunk shows (e.g. Cross-stitch, Blackwork, Hardanger, etc.) usually are a forum for seeing stitched models of a large number of pieces and most designers send along charts for much of their design line. The purpose here is to be able to see the stitched models and that's primarily why we book them.
Needlepoint trunk shows are different in that it's rare
to get stitched models. Usually a needlepoint trunk show
consists of most or all of a designer's canvases so you
can see the canvas in person vs. just a photo in a
catalog. With most needlepoint trunk shows we can sell the
canvases sent to us as well as order them. Once in a great
while we also get stitched models but it's more normal to
just get the canvases. The purpose here is to be able to
see a larger range of a designer's canvases in person.
trunk shows are 2-3 weeks in duration, occasionally we
get one for 4 weeks. We try to arrange the dates so that
time period falls over the weekend where we're open on a Sunday
but this isn't always possible with the designer's
schedules. Some trunk shows are scheduled as much as two
years in advance so it can take a bit of planning to get
on their calendar.
