and the winner is....
this was my first trade show so didn't quite know what to expect. i was sponsered by the newfoundland and labrador government(along with 5 other craftspeople), and our shared booth was lovely - aesthetically pleasing and comfortable and actually turned into a hub for alot of other sellers and buyers. knitters from other booths joining us for a chat... the pace was slow compared to a regular craft fair but instead of the contstant interaction for one for 1 or 2 purchases, there would be quiet breaks and then a purchase of 36 items. a much more liesurely experience.
and to top it off, i won "excellence in product design" award. a real honour - for me - and for all of us who devote our time and love to fibre. so the weekend was a real celebration. and i came home with lots of great orders - from all the altlantic provinces as well as from quebec and from banff national park.
so when i shake off my fatigue( brenda and i got in around 3:00 this morning), i'll be back at the wheel to get those orders rolling.
