Starting tomorrow I embark on three shows in a row. I will be showing at;
Devon Guild Fleece Day 2014
America Hall 12th Jul
Kilterton House 19th - 20th Jul
Bedford 26th - 27th Jul
I'm pretty sure that this is the first time I have had three weekend shows back to back and so I'm quite daunted... not by the shows themselves but by sales vs. stock, vs. production. It's a fine line between not having enough stock and having too much! I'm lucky in that fibre and yarn doesn't really go stale.
Kilerton will be a first for me and as a fair 'add on' to their current textile exhibition it is one that will not be repeated again from year to year (although if it goes well who knows if there will be another exhibition that I could attend there). This being the case I'm not entirely sure what to take, what will sell and how much is too much. It also makes me a bit anxious that if the first two shows do really well I only have the capacity and time to dye up around another 8kg of fibre/yarn to take to Fibre East... so I'm in a bit of a quandary. Fingers crossed I shall be ok though...
If you can make each of the shows, or even just one then please come and say 'Hi'. I love to meet fellow fibre/yarn addicts and have a host of things to show you;
- Hand dyed tops
- Hand dyed fleece
- Hand dyed yarn
- Kits and packs
- Hand carded batts
- and at a sale bucket (Prices from just £4!)
I'm signing off for now... must get everything packed for tomorrow!
