I’m excited about the upcoming Imprinted Sportswear Show in Atlantic City starting this Friday. I missed the show last year (my mom was sick but better now, thanks!). So it's been a while since I've seen many of my full-of-life East Coast customers. I laugh a lot and have so much fun at this show.

It's been a long, cold and seemingly never-ending winter but spring is finally around the corner and I'm ready to party!

This is an exciting year for us. We’re celebrating our 70th year in the toy business. My 90-year-old father still comes into the office every day!

Gear Up

We’re kicking off the celebrations at the show. Drop by our booth for a cupcake and a chat. I’d love to hear your thoughts on my new Embroider Buddy® animals. I started designing embroidable stuffed animals in 2009 with one bear and now I have more than 24 different Embroider Buddies – hard to believe! It wouldn’t have happened without the support and enthusiasm of the embroidery community.

My new tiger just arrived and he rocks! Lots more stuff to show including new cheerleader outfits and varsity jackets.

In the spirit of Atlantic City, I'm holding a Lucky Dog Raffle – enter to see if you're the Lucky Dog who walks away with $100, $200 or even $500 in prizes. I’ll be at booth 456. Hope to see you there!
