Yesterday I had a wonderful day as a vendor at the Wine and Wool Festival at the Sandhill Crane Vineyard. This was the second year for the event and my second year being a vendor. It was a perfect day. I had great sales, stalled next to great vendors and tasted wonderful wine.
I have to admit that I did spend a wee bit of my profits on a couple of goodies. First was a felted vessel made by the Mid-Michigan Wooly Women out of Llama. As soon as I passed their booth my eyes were drawn to it and finally they had me bring it to my booth to "try it out". Obviously, their sales tactic worked and I purchased it. I am going to take it to work with me and dress up my office space.
On the other side of me was Carla whose fiber arts business is knows as cjkoho. She has gorgeous colorways in quite a few different fibers but I especially fell in love with Merino/Tencel blends named Henry and Jillian and since I had a successful sales day I rewarded myself with this purchase. I have already began to spin the delicious fiber.
I really enjoy events like this because you meet so many people. Sometimes it's a reunion of friendship and acquantences that you haven't seen in ages but mostly it's a chance to meet new people who enjoy fiber arts like you do. Over a glass of wine or two, we enjoyed a wonderful afternoon together.
Thank you to everyone who came out to the vineyard and supported my farm. I am always eager to see what my customers create with the roving and yarns that I have made.
