I'm going to have a booth at Tower Grove Farmers Market this Saturday, for real this time. I'm sharing my booth with Kat from Katatomic Labs and possibly a third artisan at the Harvest Festival.This is the last farmers market this year. There will be lots of fun things to do...
|...including buying yarn|
- Strong Arm Sock Yarn
- Cotton Slub Sport
- Felting Fiber
- Lace Yarns
- Reversible drawstring project bags
- Clearance Yarns
- I'm out of Cotton Warp right now and am not sure it will be ready by Saturday. I'll try.
- I don't sell the spinning fibers or handspun well at Farmer's Market, so I'm leaving them at home unless there is a special request for it. Please do let me know if you are a spinner and would like to see some roving.
I'm already thinking about next year. The goal is at least one fiber show. Really, fiber shows are the best venue for me, but it is difficult to get travel together with our various work schedules. It is hard to get just one day off in a week without taking the entire week off. Anyone know of any local-to-STL, 1-2 day, weekend-only knitting-and-fiber shows besides Waterloo and Bethel?
I'm considering doing the Rotary Show at Lindbergh High School in the springtime. It's a HUGE craft show. I'm not sure it's my crowd, but I do like doing local shows and making new spinners and knitters. I figure if I make my booth and food fees back and I don't have to drive more than 20 minutes to get there then it is worth my time if I can make at least 2 new knitters or spinners. If I have to drive more than 20 minutes or drag all my inventory from my car myself, bring a tent or worry about weather then it quits being worth the hassle, the exception being Tower Grove Farmers Market. See above. I'll be there this weekend. :)
