Recycled wool banner for fiber shows
I plan to go to at least one fiber fair this summer/fall, so I am slowly preparing now while it's cold outside, but cozy to spend the day inside sewing. I had my first show last year, and one of the biggest mistakes I made was not identifying myself. Several people asked "what is the name of your business?", and I would tell them & give them a card, but I now know I need a banner. I found an over sized mustard colored scarf months ago & have been hanging on to it until now, specifically for this. All I did was cut out some letters out of scraps, sewed them to the scarf, and used emboidery floss to embroider "reuse, recycle..." on it. It looks even better in person... the colors are more vibrant. It's over 5 feet long & over a foot tall. Now everyone will know who I am!
