This summer started out with a lovely leisurely saunter to it, and now that sonic boom I just heard is Fall clambering for attention. Our guild has participated in at least five demonstrations throughout the region, some lasting for several days. Some were at historical sites, some were at agricultural events or country fairs, but all were a load of fun. And a load of work. So now, we are preparing for our own event. Our guild will be having our Sale and Exhibition in early November. I’ll be a vendor so I need to get going on sorting through inventory and (sigh) start labelling and pricing items.
I’ll be having braids, batts, and spun yarn
And being terribly disappointed in how the photos turn out in this horrible lighting. These colours are not at all grey and sad looking in sunlight, but this is how they will probably look during winter, so I should take that into consideration when I make colours. Indoor lighting will have an emotional effect on how people view their decisions.
Anyway, you get the idea that there will be a huge variety of different items available at our guild Sale and Ex. I am partnering with another guild member who weaves. She took her degree in Fiber Arts from a University in Nova Scotia and does superlative work. Jan will get some of those for you later I’m sure.
Finally, something cheerful! Well colourful in a Fall sort of way at least. I’ve ordered labelling cards which should arrive this week, so I can at least get a jump on things by cracking out the scale and start weighing stuff. Here’s hoping everyone has a great Fall (my favourite time of year, busy though it is) an abundant harvest and lovely fibre to work with.
