Working Working Working

my boss went to florida the end of December and said she wouldn't be back for a month -- well, that turned out to be a bit of a lie, as she told others she wouldn't be back till April. Needless to say, it left me bereft of income and wondering how to make it work financially. i had sales from the Scotland By the Yard and then asked a couple of other retail places if they would be interested in either buying outright or consigning my products. One place has said to come back in July as they start their huge selling season then.

in the meantime, i've been making tons of new things and posting some of them in my etsy shop, where i have sold a few things. but i also signed up as a vendor for the Green Mountain Fiber Festival that will be held in White River Junction, VT March 18-20. If you are in the neighborhood and interested in fiber for spinning, or yarn for crocheting, knitting, or felt art, then this would be a great place to come. also, they will be offering classes that you can sign up for as well. i'm excited to see how this will work out for me as i spent a good deal on the table fee -- much much more than i have ever spent. my daughter is going to help me set up and stay with me on the Friday and Sunday. Sat. I'm hoping some friends will drop by as well to help. i'm hoping i've made enough product and that it is stuff that ppl will want to buy. lots of shawl pins and penannular pins as well as stitch markers and new earrings, bracelets, neckwires, etc. so if you are nearby come check us out.
