The Fiber Fair!
Since many of you have done art & craft shows, i'm sure you will giggle at my "booth", but since this was my first one, I think I did ok!
When I got my information in the mail before the fair, I groaned when I saw I was to be right next to the band. I am usually an optimist, but I was worried about loud, bad music blaring at me all day. Thankfully I was wrong! They were great! My son had a great time peeking at them & dancing, and I was thankful to have front row seating. I even bought their CD, and it's great! If you like bluegrass, you'll like Nuff Said, Old Time Country & Blues Revue.
The other venders were so nice, and it had such a community feel to it. I loved being able to see the wool spun into yarn. It was a fun day!
My Counter Coasters (trivets) sold like hot cakes, and my sweaters did well too. One sweet lady said that she came to the fair specifically to check out my booth! I was so flattered! All of the beautiful things made by others, that I displayed, got a lot of attention too. It made me happy to pass out business cards for the artists I love to support :)
After the fair my family camped. We had a great time roasting marshmallows, but I could have done without the moles rustling around UNDER our tent all night long. Anyhow, we are back now, and I will be listing some new sweaters in my shop today as time permits.
