New Look – In Development

The first show of the season was a couple of weeks ago.  I’m prepping for the next one now, looking forward to participating in the Goderich Arts and Crafts Show on July 5th to 7th.
If you remember, this is the town that was devastated by a tornado in August 2011.  They are on their way to recovering, still lots of work to do.  Why don’t you come out for a visit, support the town and check out their charming craft show. 
Show hours are 12:00 – 8:00 Friday, 9:00 – 5:00 Saturday and 10:00 – 4:00 Sunday. 
 Now, on to the new look!  I mentioned a few posts ago that I had purchased a new tent.  Here is how it looks after  set up for the first show.

At the Fairy Lake Artisans Festival
It is so strong and sturdy!  I’m very thrilled with the tent.  One thing though, it’s definitely white, more so than the old tent.  I think I need to look at a backdrop to bring some more colour in.  I love how this picture makes my tablecloths look so bright and cheery.  They really are not that light in colour, and are actually a deeper royal blue.  I kind of like the shade here though, maybe slightly lighter and less opaque for a wall backdrop?  I’ll give it some time to noodle on.
 I also want to place the wall grids vertically, preferably using supports to stand them from, and just tie them in at the top to secure in place.  And, I need to get a lot more hooks.  Would you believe there are over a hundred in this picture?
More hooks makes for more jewellery to display.  Fun!

Prepping a New Season

I have been busy the last few weeks, getting ready for upcoming shows.  The first craft show that I will be at is the Fairy Lake Artisans Festival, in Newmarket.

I’m very excited as this is my neck of the woods.  The show runs Saturday June 15 and Sunday June 16 from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm each day.

A New Life, Upcycled Glass Pearls, Lampwork Beads

 You will need to park on the north side of Timothy Street or other local parking.  Vehicles will not be allowed into the park during the festival.

Here are maps of routes to get to the park. 
Newmarket’s Davis Drive is undergoing a lot of construction for the new rapid transit bus lanes.  I recommend very strongly that you use a different road!

I’m looking forward to seeing everyone there!
