Circle Craft


The shawl is more of a teal, less yellow.

Day 1 is nearly done, just four more to go.

I slept really poorly last night.  Show jitters combined with ambulances roaring out on calls all night long made for a restless night.  Just what you want for show opening.   Not!

The weather was quite nice and we had decent crowds earlier in the day, some of whom were inclined to purchase.  But there is a big weather system moving in and rain predicted for the rest of the week.  Hopefully not so nasty to prevent people coming downtown.

The show is lovely, as usual.  I've only walked some of the aisles, but there are many familiar faces.  This show has a fairly high percentage of clothing designers due to the fashion programs in the area.  But there are also plenty of the more traditional crafts, pottery, wood, glass, jewelry, etc.  this year there is only one other weaver, so it was good to catch up with her.  It will be interesting to see if the new younger weavers get to the point of production before us oldsters completely give up and/or give out.  I know my body is protesting years of production weaving.

But I have all that yarn....

Laura, your booth set up looks fantastic with lots of beautiful things to entice buyers. May the show be a huge success and sell out to the walls.

Photos are wonderful! Please, make sure to have a good rest! Do not bother so much about that yarn! If you feel that you need rest, just go and take rest!
