The Show is Over

The show is over. It was a really good show with lots of people. I was really pleased with how I did. Now a day or two to recover and I have to start thinking of what to make for the next one.

This was my booth. Jan took the picture. I am hoping using the embed link from One drive will work.

I need more than a 10×10 booth but not 10 by 20, so I take two and My friend Bernadette takes half of one.

I sold one of my art pieces. My First Quarter Challenge piece. that made me very happy and sad at the same time. https://feltingandfiberstudio.com/2019/03/27/first-quarter-challange-finished/

So far I am failing at my third-quarter challenge. I hade a couple of ideas and then changed my mind then picked something else and even did a layout but nope, I am not feeling it. It was another planet sort of thing. I have another idea but we will see.

This was the other planet one. The white domes are paper.

 

I wanted to remind people that World Wide Spin in Public Day is coming up, September 21, 2019. Are you Planning to spin with friends or by yourself? Or at a shop or other event? If you have been thinking about trying spinning this would be a great day to do it. I will be at the farmers market with my spindle. Here is a facebook group. There are lots of posts about places to participate. facebook.com/groups/wwsipday/

Last Show of the Season

Last Saturday and Sunday I did the last show of the season. It is usually a good show but it snowed and there was freezing rain. The driving was terrible. So Not so great a show. It was very slow but some crazy people did come out and I made a little money. On the up side I now have a head start on next years felting so less work for me.

Here is what my booth looked like.

There were other great booths there too.

Christmas day was busy and lots of fun but in the middle of making the gravy my daughter and niece decided I needed more colour for the day.

I hope everyone is having a great holiday and you are enjoying friends, family and fiber. Now I am off to the store to return a broken present.

The Show

I had a great show. It was busy all weekend. Many people said it was there first time attending.  They really liked it. They liked that it wasn’t a huge show with hundreds of vendors. They were impressed by the quality and variety of the work for sale.

We did have some demo space and they were selling tickets on a raffle that supports our classes.

There where 3 other felters there. They do mostly needle felting.

Of course there was more than just felt at the sale.

These brooms where beautiful. I think I would have to clean my house before using one though. Might be easier to become Wiccan.

Sadly I did not take a picture of my booth. The fingerless mitts did prove to be popular. So that was my weekend.  My feet where very tired at the end. And then of course we had to pack it up and take it home. My son Colin was a great help both for set up and take down. He is a good packer so everything is packed up the and into the van with room to spare.
