I'm a member of the Southern Highland Craft Guild, so I do the 2 Guild Fairs that they put on each year. The first is in July. It's always the week after the Chet Atkins Appreciation Society Convention. Of course I'm tired but really, I"m used to it, so Wednesday we headed over to set up for the show. DH comes with me to help get the lights right. Then he heads back home to work another day before joining me again for the weekend (to help take those lights down!). The show runs Thursday through Sunday.
My primary view this time was looking at the Haywood Community College Professional Crafters program booth. It's a 2 year school for crafters learning their craft plus how to be business people. Each day there were different people manning the booth. Kind of nice not to have to be there the whole time but once they do just their own work, they'll be there the entire time like us old people!
Again, I came home with empty rubbermaids so know that I'll be working hard once I get back from Canada to get ready for the October show. It's only 3 months away!
Today I'll be finishing up paperwork, etc from this show, figuring out what to take back to the Center for display and just putting things away. Then packing.
Thursday I'll be heading north to Canada again. I'll have my van packed (already got an oil change this morning!) and my trip tik in hand!
So hopefully I'll be able to post from there again. I don't plan to get back down here til nearly the end of August. In talking to my sister last night, looks like it's going to be an interesting time with company and projects planned!
Until then, keep weaving for me!!
