Happy New Year! Okay, I’m a little late on that, but it still counts!
I wanted to send out a thank you to all of you. I feel so fortunate to have so many supportive people in my life.
This was especially apparent during my brief but fun market “season”. You listened to my ramblings about stock and all things market related (in person and/or online), witnessed the disaster scene as I prepped, and came out to the markets to shop, visit, supply me with drinks and man the table for breaks.
There will be more later on markets that are upcoming, but for now, thank you!!
I can hardly believe it’s already December… time is just zipping by!
I wanted to put out a quick post to let people know that I’ll be participating in two Christmas markets at the Victoria Public Market (#6 1701 Douglas Street). The first will be on Monday the 4th, the second on Monday the 18th. I’ll be there from 10:00 – 4:00 for sure, but will probably stay until the 6:00 closing time.
I’ll have a mix of 2D (framed and unframed images) and 3D needle felting (pears and penguins), as well as some sterling silver and copper jewellery.
I’d love to see you there!
The Island Knits Fibre Market is over, and I’d say it was a great success! The Victoria Public Market was packed all day, and hopefully all the vendors made oodles of sales!
I had a lot of fun meeting and chatting with people – there are so many creative and interesting people in this city.
Here are a few blurry and busy pictures of my booth.
Thanks you to everyone for all your support leading up to this event – it was much appreciated! 😘
A whole lotta needle felting!
Yay – fall has arrived (and not my usual kind of fall 😉). First off, the annual pumpkin needle felting workshop is happening on October 21st at the Beehive Wool Shop, from 10:30 – 12:30am. Call or drop by the Beehive to book a spot! This is one of my favourite workshops – pumpkins are fun.
Secondly, I’m taking part in a market on October 28th (poster below). It’s a fibre market arranged by Island Knits, and the list of sellers makes me keep repeating to myself “I’m there to sell, not to buy (much)”.
I’m madly felting away to produce stock, and have broken out “the good stuff” – hand-dyed fibres that I’ve been hoarding. I will also be making some copper and sterling silver fibre related jewellery (shawl pins and sticks, and possibly stitch markers).
I’m really excited about this – I haven’t participated in a market in years. I’ve been saying that I need to be two people – one to obsess over all of the organizational and table design details (I’m a great obsesser!), and the other to actually make stuff. My mind is whirling!
I hope to see you there! There’s always the opportunity for lots of yummy food at the Public Market too… choosing is the difficult part…
