|Elena, happy we are finally set up although the next day we will have changed everything around.|
|Claudia also pleased to be done with set up|
The show was great. Lasted two and a half days and we sold everything we had brought. That was the goal. I hate having to pack stuff up and sending it back. Kathe was teaching the only tapestry class at the show. It was one of the most popular classes. She had a few half day classes and then one couple day class (I think). That one had 20 students. I don't know how she does it. Plus, the treadle she brought wasn't cooperating when she tried to attach it to the loom. What a fiasco. Finally, the plumber (that would be me) arrived and a half an hour later, a lot of sweat and a sore hand (I just slammed that thing onto the shedding device with my fist because I was lacking any tools) it was in fine working order.
The vendor across the way was selling gold. I kid you not. I had to buy a cone of it. Just had to. 14k Gold spun around a silk core. It doesn't get any better than that. Our next kit will include this gold and silk threads and 24k plated beads. It's going to be gorgeous. Probably "smartphone" size with a woven strap. I plan to get to work on it today. Would have last night but our power went out just when the light was getting dim so I read a book by flickering candle light which is really hard on your eyes.
