What To Do?

Place mats!

  We DID sell a few rugs and a few place mats during the Foothills sale, but we also brought more than a few back to the Center.  And, this has made us very aware that we need to think of another way to display them for the shop, as well as future shows.  As it stands right now, even if you knew what you wanted, you'd be hard pressed to find it!!!!
  So, today, we spent some time in reflection....what we liked and what we want to do differently.  
  And, we got to look at the final figures (thank you, Tina!!)  She did a breakdown on the sales by the different weavers as well as the items that sold.  Needless to say, it was very interesting.  But, it seems that we all would like to do this again next year, and we have some ideas we'll be working on in the meantime.
  So, for now, it's back to your "normal" weaving routine.  YEAH!!!!!
Happy Weaving!

It was fun thinking about ways to better show off the beauty of our products!

I think the hardest part of marketing anything is making it all look beautiful and easy to select. Good luck with your brainstorming. I know you'll all come up with some wonderful solutions for all those handwoven beauties.
