Craft Shows

Saturday was the big craft show. Even though I consider myself a craft show pro, I still didn't know what to expect from this one. This is the first non Christmas show I've done, and it was a first for the organization. I had sent out a lot of invites, and I was counting on the show being well advertised and therefore new people to fall in love with my stuff. It was the quietest show I've ever done. Some people packed up early because there just weren't many people coming through. I'm glad I sent my invites out, because that's the majority of people who came. 

Anyway, here's my cute table. I was worried about not having enough stuff to sell, but in the end it was the right amount.
 I tried to use a lot of bright colors, since it's spring. One of my favorite things I did this time were these little pouches. There is a pocket inside that is just perfect for an iPhone.
 The earbud pouches were a hit. I love the zippers. If you're in the market, Zipit on etsy has the best selection and  prices.
 And I also had a few toppers and runners.
A big thank you to everyone who came out! My next show will be in November. I have a plan so that I'm not frantically sewing the week before. We'll see if I can stick to it.

Tomorrow I am off to Kansas City for Market. To say I'm excited is an understatement. I am beyond thrilled! I'll be in The Quilted Fish booth, so if you're there, please stop by and say hi! And, practice your dance moves. It's important.

I loved everything you had this Spring. Glad you're embracing the adage I live by: 'plan your work and work your plan'. I've got a new one 'obey yourself.'

Have a great trip.
