There were demos of both weaving and spinning.

The only things new for me really were Christmas balls, and some hand turned wood plying/knitting bowls I was selling for a friend. I sold 4 of the 5.

It was a fun weekend. I got to chat with lots of new people about felt and it was great to see repeat customers and hear how they have enjoyed there previous purchase’s.  Its great to meet people year after year and know they have enjoyed something you made enough to come back and tell you about it and perhaps purchase more things.

Have you enjoyed any shows this fall?

    I like Nancy’s birds and I’m not surprised that you sold most of the turned bowls – they’re lovely. Your Christmas tree baubles turned out to be very pretty – did you sell them all?

    • She does make lovely stuff. I sold a few balls. I think people thought they were just part of the display, or maybe it’s to early for them. I hope they do better in the next 2 shows. I did sell about 30 felted soaps. I only came home with 4.

    Looks like a beautiful show. I have a hard time selling Christmas ornaments in the store. They have never sold well and I’m not sure why. Glad you sold a lot of soap – guess you have to make some more 🙂

    Looks like a fun fair and glad to hear you did so well on selling the felted soap! Handmade markets at Christmas time are the best, particularly the ones with fiber.
