Well, I’ve set a new personal best for shrinkage: 2.2 of those metres lost! That’s a bit annoying, to be honest, although the finished cloth has turned out very well so I can’t really stay cross with it. It’s all rolled up now and packed for despatch tomorrow, but before the bubble wrap was applied Stuart took a few pictures.
I’m sorry to report that yesterday’s event was not a triumph. I sold no work at all! The venue was quite small but very nice – attractive space, well located – and the other vendors had lovely work. Visitors were very engaged and interested in what we did, but they were not at all inclined to buy. So it wasn’t just me: we all had a more-or-less frustrating day. I’m not sure why the event turned out that way, but judging from the remarks I heard, people were seeing it as a chance to look at attractive things rather than to buy from local artists and makers. Very disappointing.
Never mind, I’m ready(ish) for my trip and looking forward to some weaverly company on Thursday.
