Chicago One of a Kind show

Posted by Fairy Yarnmother on December 12, 2010

My friend, Cristel, and I went to the OOAK show at Merchandise Mart last week.  It was big and loud and crowded!  but if you’ve never gone, you’ve missed something exciting.  There were more than 600 venders, here’s the link for it:   There was lots of designers there and everything was spectacular.  I was thinking it would be a good show to vend there, but the price tag is heavy so I wanted to look at it first.   I had the perfect opportunity because a friend of a friend was a vendor there this year.   Here’s her website:  Her name is Jill and she makes really unique  garments out of recycled sweaters.  Very clever about how she constructs them, I like all the angles and colorful each piece is.

Getting ready for my next show

Posted by Fairy Yarnmother on August 3, 2010

Can’t believe it’s August already!  The time is going so fast.  I had a lot of fun at the Midwest Felting Symposium and the Midwest Fiber & Folk Art, but now it’s time to move on to my next show; the Oconomowoc Festival of the Arts. 

Here’s the link for it:   Aug ust 21st and 22nd.  Check it out.  It’s going to be a blast.   It’s right in Fowler Park, northeast of downtown Oconomowoc.  There’s parking in the municple lots and the city will bus you up to the park.  It’s a beautiful park and the lake will keep the show cool.  I’m booth #15, in the large tent near the entrance.  Stop by and say hello!

I’ll add some photos if I can get organized enough to do it!
