Upcoming Artisan and Craft Shows
Two of the great joys of participating and selling my fiber-craft at shows each year are:
- Getting to show off my knitting/crocheting to a public that seems to really like it
- When friends (both real-life and virtual) come to my booth and I get to meet them
Love to See You
Only a small percentage of QueerJoe blog readers are geographically close by to where I live and sell my work. So there are very few people I know from on-line forums and this blog that I ever get to meet in person. I don\’t often have the opportunity to meet even the folks who live somewhat close by.
There are also very few craft shows that meet my criteria for wanting to set up a table:
- Must be within 30 miles of where I live
- Can\’t be an outside events (requiring display tents)
- Must be between October and December (knitwear doesn\’t sell so well in the Summer)
- Needs to attract higher-end buyers who can afford finer hand-crafted items
This year I\’m only doing two shows:
Flemington Fine Artisans Show – Sunday, October 29, 2017
Stangl Factor – 4 Stangl Road, Flemington, New Jersey 08822
Prallsville Mill Fine Crafts & Arts Show – Saturday/Sunday, December 2-3, 2017
Prallsville Mill – 33 Risler St, Stockton, New Jersey 08559
I know many of my readers are knitters, but both these shows will have extremely beautiful gifts and items for sale you will love.
RSVP to either or both of the shows on Facebook links and I hope to see you there!
Another magical multi-tasking HowlCat was finished since the last blog entry.
Alex Tinsley’s color combinations are much more bold than mine. I’m honestly trying to build up potential gift items to sell at the craft shows for men, and I believe that most people buying gifts for guys don’t like interesting colorways.
But then again, these Noro Beanies seem to sell pretty well.
I just finished this last night and I’m reminded of how amazingly well Noro does color.
