I want to thank you all so very much for your ideas and suggestions for my first ever Craft Fair.
Bill Hubby took pics the first day.
This is my new pattern. I saw a picture and made it up.
It's a Gathering Apron!
These are drawn up a bit. They are sorta long and totally reversible.
You can wear it long or draw it up to form a pouch.
Hands free flower picking, toy collecting, garden pickin action!
I made forty'leven bibs and some burp cloths.
Made a bunch of tissue holders - sold one.
The Craft Fair itself was a bust for all the vendors. The market sponsoring it did next to zero advertising. The only "shoppers" were our friends who stopped by to visit!
We encouraged 'em to buy stuff from other folk and they did.
The Market shoppers greeted us with "What's going on here?" "I didn't know this was happening." "Wish I'd known, I would have brought some/more cash."
Frustrating for all of us
I met some very talented folks. We are looking in to forming a Craft Coalition to sell and promote our stuff. Fingers crossed!
I was so happy to meet Missy from Crafting with Cat Hair!
She works just down the street from the MarketPlace and delayed her trip home to hang out on Friday afternoon!
And I got to brag that everything I made for the Craft Fair was from my stash o' fabric!
I'll be back tomorrow to tell you what I did this week to recover.
Hint: yard stuff and retail therapy!!!
