This week has not been a big felting week. I managed to make a few more lock pins. These ones are smaller, a little better for on a hat.
Mostly it has been baking and working on the upcoming Ottawa Valley Weavers’ and Spinners’ Guild Sale and Exhibition. I think I told you a somehow ended up as co-chair of the organization committee. I have a great group of ladies helping out. we are trying to get it all organized with timelines and procedures written down so when the next people have to take over they don’t have to start again. A lot of what we are doing is moving everything from a paper set up to a digital set up. we hope to start making 2 and 5-year plans for the Show. So far it seems to be going well. The Show is November 2 and 3.
Hi everyone this last weekend was the Ottawa Valley Weavers and Spinners Guild Exhibition and Sale. I had a good sale and we had some new vendors as well as returning ones.
This was my booth. I was in a new spot this year and I really liked the burnt orange wall. It showed off everything really well. I got lots of compliments on the new booth so I think I will be staying in this spot.
On the other side of the scarves on the left I hung some pictures.
I took some pictures of the other booths.
It was a very tiring weekend, but fun too. It was great to see everyone and what they are making. The new workshop schedule for 2018 was available for the first time. I got to meet some great people that come to see what we are up to, buy great items and sign up for workshops.
Just home form 2 days as a vendor at my guilds annual show and sale. It was a busy weekend. we stayed open late on Saturday night but with it being the first time it wasn’t busy. It did give us time to look at each others things and have some good chats with fellow vendors, so not all bad. It did make for a very long day, 10am to 8 pm. Sunday morning before everyone got there I took some movies of the show so you can see it. They are not grate but I am doing better at moving slower and smoother. I hope you enjoy them.
My both is the second one you see, in the corner.
I don’t seem to have any programs on my computer that edit video. I thought I did but the programs that will show me the video want me to buy and upgrade to be able to do anything with the video. these videos were done with my iPhone What do you use to edit video?
I had a great show. It was busy all weekend. Many people said it was there first time attending. They really liked it. They liked that it wasn’t a huge show with hundreds of vendors. They were impressed by the quality and variety of the work for sale.
We did have some demo space and they were selling tickets on a raffle that supports our classes.
There where 3 other felters there. They do mostly needle felting.
Of course there was more than just felt at the sale.
These brooms where beautiful. I think I would have to clean my house before using one though. Might be easier to become Wiccan.
Sadly I did not take a picture of my booth. The fingerless mitts did prove to be popular. So that was my weekend. My feet where very tired at the end. And then of course we had to pack it up and take it home. My son Colin was a great help both for set up and take down. He is a good packer so everything is packed up the and into the van with room to spare.
The guild I belong to, the Ottawa Valley Weavers and Spinners Guild, had its annual exhibition and sale this last weekend. I had a booth selling scarves and wraps and flowers and cuffs and hats etc. The guild does a display on a theme and has demos and promotes our classes. It’s our big event for the year. The venue is beautiful it is a community center now but used to be a church and has a huge domed center.
Here are some pictures of my booth and me explaining what nuno felt is to a customer.
