September was my busiest and most successful month so far. I’m slowly catching up on things, like blogging, that I let slide during those crazy weeks.
Shortly after sending off my first yarn order off to The Robbins’ Nest in Brighton, Ontario (previous blog post), Francine and I were vendors at the 2nd Annual Wolfe Island Fibre Fest on Saturday, September 14th. The festival was a two day event but as this was our first year attending, we opted to attend one day only. We had a great time on Wolfe Island and it wasn’t long before we wished that we had chosen to attend both days. There were more than 20 vendors there in three different venues. We (picture above right) were in the United Church with several other vendors (picture below). After we packed up everything, we enjoyed a lovely dinner with a couple of friends out on the patio of Island Grill restaurant overlooking the water before catching the ferry to head home.
After the Wolfe Island Fibre Fest was over, I immediately started working on stocking up again for my upcoming order to The Loop in Halifax and my trunk show which was less than 2 weeks away. I mailed off these 43 skeins to The Loop on Halifax on Monday, September 23rd.
On Thursday, September 26th, I headed down to Brighton, Ontario to setup for my 2 day trunk show at The Robbins’ Nest during the town’s annual Applefest. Besides my yarn and knitted samples, I also brought more of Francine’s shawl pins and stitch markers and Natalie’s patterns with me. Elaine (the owner) was a great host and I had a good time there meeting lots of knitters and hanging out. Here are a few pictures of my setup for the trunk show.
