A little over a month ago I applied to be a craft vendor at Patchwork Show at Jack London Square in Oakland, California, which is just a hop, skip, and a jump from where I live. Then, last week, I got an email saying that I was accepted to the event! As excited as I am, I'm also a bit nervous. I have so much to do before then to get ready and make sure I have enough items and enough variety in my stock. Luckily, I have been making many things over the course of the year in hopes of doing a craft fair or two for the holidays, so I have a bit of a head start. Still, lots to do. Since it's my first major (major) craft fair, I decided to invite one of my sisters out to help me. She'll be flying in a couple days before the show, and I just know she'll help make it a successful event. If you're in the area, come check it out. I'll have handstitched softies, a hand-embroidered sheep, zipper pouches, sewing kits for kids, and lots more. I'll post more about my progress soon, and let you all know my booth number when I find out.
Wish me luck!
