Wear something you made, one fiber artist told me on Friday night.
You know that's kind of hard, but I wore my knitted fingerless gloves and a semi-felted
red, black, and white flower in my hair.
was a wonderful opportunity. Did I sell a whole lot and make tons of money? Of course not! But, I was glad to participate in a festival that made me feel I was in a non-threatening environment. The crafters there were super kind. I got lots of feedback, tips, compliments that I will put to use at the next craft fair experience. In fairness I was participating in a pottery festival that had other types of craft forms there, but mostly potters. And although it was well advertised, this is only the second year of the festival, and it rained...a lot...over the weekend. But I still had a wonderful time. I'm so glad to have done this and now my head continues to swim with ideas. :-)
I have some photos to share, some I took when I went to the preview on Friday and some my cousin took with her cell phone so I could keep my word about showing pictures.
I am super, super thankful to have shared a booth with Erica of Erica L. King Designs (ELK Bags on Etsy). We had a lot of items packed in that one space, but we made it! Erica takes anything she finds and turns it into functional art. Check out her shop.
Pictured above are some of Erica's creations.
My cousin helped me out a great deal!

That's it for now! Gotta get going on some orders. :-)
