New York City - Here We Come!
Kanine Knits Trunk Show

Intarsia has “Gone to the Dogs!”

Feb. 9 - 13, 2007
Since we couldn’t make TNNA this year to introduce our new line of patterns, we decided to bring them to the one place in New York City where dog lovers abound—the Westminster Kennel Club Show.

The display will include many samples of some of the over 75 intarsia designs of pure bred dogs to be worked on sweaters and accessories plus samples of the pattern leaflets for you.

The Crafty Dog Series knitting books will also be available.

Designer Peggy Gaffney will be available throughout the show to discuss her work as well as take requests for future designs that might be popular to knitters. Peggy is also available for classes or talks. Since she’s only a two hour train commute to Grand Central away, she would be available to share her “Painting With Yarn” approach to intarsia.

Of course Peggy's custom knitting services will be available to non-knitters who want to wear these wonderful sweaters. She'll custom design for you a unique sweater created with your choice of yarn and style and with an intarsia design of your dog.

The Trunk Show will be set up on the lower level (stairs at the back of the lobby) of the Hotel Pennsylvania at the entrance to the Green Room where all the canine stars are prepared for the show. The hours are from 10 am to 4 pm Friday—Monday and 10 am to noon on Tuesday, February 9—13, 2007.

Peggy hopes to see everyone there. It is always an exciting time for dog lovers and hopefully this year we won't have the added excitement of the blizzard that, though fun to see, made it tough to get to the show.

Come visit and see the sweaters.
