Whew! I’m back and somewhat organized and rested from an exciting weekend at Sheep in the City in Oak Creek, Wisconsin. It was my first show, and what a friendly and fun one!
Here’s my booth…..
I debuted a new yarn at this show, Bengal Twist, which was a big hit. I’ll tell you more about that when I’ve got them in the shop. I also have many new colors of Panda for you. I got many compliments on my bright colors, which made me feel better…..everyone else there had mostly darker moody colors.
And here is our hostess, Jan (of the bright hair), starting off the Sheep to Shawl demonstration (it was supposed to be a guild war, but the local guild pummelled the others so badly that there were no challengers this year).
Everyone contributed some bits of yarn and fluff, and a fun art yarn was made and turned into a little shawlette.
At the end of the day Saturday, there was a fashion show. Many amazing projects were paraded down the runway. Here’s a shawl that took this lady much of the summer to make…..you can’t see them, but there are gold beads all over it.
And to give you an idea of the fun of this group, here’s another ensemble that strutted about……….
From there, the group launched into a full blown pajama party with lots of fun, laughter, and singing. Oh, and crazy wigs!
In all, I had a great time….this was the perfect show to start out vending. I learned and laughed a lot, and made many new friends. If you are in the area (or even if not….the hotel is right next to the airport), I’d encourage you to come next year. Jan puts on a great show!
