Shepherd's Harvest May 2010

Denise of Wool Alchemy and I ( A Tranquil Nook) - shared a booth at Shepherd's Harvest Sheep and Wool Festival. These are some photos of our stall.

We were across from the music stage in Bldg A. The Porch Pickers played both days. People were dancing in our booth as they look at goods. What fun!

Most of these photos were taken during a brief lull. Lookers were pretty constant and sales were nice too. It was wonderful to see so many people trying on my hats, and looking so great plus enjoying themselves.

Die cut shapes were very popular, so glad I decided to do those for people who choose to DIY.

Denise's needle felt critters get more amazing each year. People were really delighted with those, and the great expressiveness of the faces on each of her critters. Her nuno felt scarves also much admired. A variety of her wonderful items went to new homes and will be much enjoyed.

This year we both entered items in the felting contests. Denise won a white ribbon for a needle felted Critter and I won a white ribbon for hand wet felted versatile vine - felt rope with flower and leaf.

Had intended to capture more photos of the whole SH experience, but did not manage that this time. There was such a wonderful variety of fiber vendors and finished goods too. It was a fabulous blend and so many choices.

My personal goals for next year are to get more general photos and to get items into the fashion show.

Many thanks to all the volunteer coordinators and to all the attendees. It was a fabulous time,.

Oh how exciting!
Your booth looks fabulous. So fun to see your pretty hats displayed! :-)

You're bringing back memories for me, too. I used to do many fairs, years ago. Lots of work but lots of fun too. :-)

Glad you enjoyed it and had a nice response.

Hugs, Crystal :-)

It must be great to see people trying on your hats, that's something we don't get online of course.
