The Cathedral Village Arts Festival Street Fair is this coming Saturday from 10 AM to 5 PM! I’ll be in front of Traditions Handcraft Gallery. Come down and pay me a visit! I’ll be demonstrating rug hooking and selling my work. There will also be cards for sale and a sign up sheet for classes.
I offer my beginner classes for 1 1/2 hours on Saturday afternoons. They are $50 for lessons, and $50 for supplies (a kit – fibre and backing with design, hook, and hoop). Starting this year I can take up to 3 or 4 people at a time. You can email me at <firstname.lastname@example.org> if you are interested.
As a reminder, I also sell tweed and plaid swatches for rug hooking, as well as bags of scrap wool, and some fat quarters. You can check the “Fabric for Sale” tag at the top of this page, or contact me in person at <email@example.com>. I will not be bringing fabric and supplies to the Street Fair as they prefer to have finished products sold there.
Yesterday I skipped making a list of things to take to the Fair and instead brought everything I’d need to the living room/studio area. I think I will buy some vapor barrier plastic to put behind the rugs to protect them from sawdust. I am sharing space with a wood lathe artist. I don’t know what those are like for creating sawdust. I’m hoping they are not as bad as a table saw. I do not want to be washing all my wall hangings and re-blocking them after the Fair. Not to mention I’m allergic to sawdust. :(
I finished adding a hanging sleeve on Goldfish. It was a toss up whether to do that or use hook and loop tape and shellack a hardwood hanging board. I decided to go with the sleeve, for now. It can always be swapped out if people really want to put up an invisible hanging system.
I edited another three wall hanging photos. Three to go!
I printed out the SCC juried logo for 2015. Found my Dept. of Finance permission to sell certificate in the province too. I’d forgotten about needing that at the sale.
I’ve decided to hook more e-patterns of the month at the Street Fair. So if you want to see what’s coming up on Etsy in the way of e-patterns, come on down and take a look! If I have space and time I’ll draw out a design of either a barn or some poppies to hook. :)
