For my non weaving friends, I have to tell you, getting ready for shows is work! First I have to weave up some inventory then pack it all up. Then I have to decide what items for displaying that inventory I will take, which loom and supplies, etc. I will need. Then there are the multiple trips to the van to load it all up. I usually don't sleep well the night before so by the time I get to the show I am tired.
My first show of the year was yesterday. For the first time I shared a booth with two other people. It sure was nice having some company for the day. It also worked out well when I needed to leave the booth for a short time. I didn't have to worry about leaving the booth unattended. The only downside to sharing was that we were a bit cramped. I had my loom and rack that I hang my rugs on out of the booth. That would have been okay except that it rained a few times in the morning. I had to keep covering and uncovering my things. It will be fun to share a booth again in the future but our space would have to be larger.
Today I am taking a break. Other than putting everything away and going to church I relaxed but all that will end in the morning. This is the week our youngest graduates from high school. I have so much to do before out of town guests come at the end of the week! The week after that it will be back to work building my inventory back up. My next show is in June! For me time is just flying by!
Until next time,
