Countdown to the Craft Fair

Hello!
I am getting so excited about this craft fair next month...just a few weeks to go and I am madly sewing, collaging, and organizing. I wanted to have more of my art quilt sketchbook covers-- so here's one I made today.


 
I had forgotten how fun these are to make!

 
I'd love to hear your stories and advice from doing craft fairs, too!...total newbie here!

Your felted heart is fabulous! I love the fabric you used for the cover! I've never sold at a craft fair so I have no words of wisdom. I do have ohhs and ahhhs though! I just found your blog and love all the creative goodness here! So glad Corrine told me about you!

You're going to have so much fun!!! I love craft fairs because of the interaction with the customers. I'll admit I've had bad ones and good ones. The good ones are wonderful, the bad ones can make you doubt yourself (just a warning). I know its going to be great for you and you'll have a ball!

Katie - this is spectacular! I'm crazy for hearts. I used to to craft fairs when we lived in the north (above the 60th parallel) ... it was great fun. I was doing mostly quilting then too, so I did wall hangings, table runners, baby quilts, Christmas stockings etc. A friend and I always shared a table - it was a 2 1/2 hour drive each way to make this happen. Stand up and smile a lot - talk to people - they will love you, Katie. Some people with tables at craft fairs tend to just sit there - doesn't do much for people to get in the mood. I loved it. I hope you do too. xoDonna

Lovely cover! Love the layered heart. I don't have any advice about craft fairs, but just be yourself. Your enthusiasm will shine through. :)

Hi, Katie. Hope the fair goes well for you. The book cover is so cool. And I really liked your Christmas ornaments in the previous post. Hope they sell well.
Have a happy holiday season!
