The only down side is the lighting in the hall was so abysmal that I don't have any photos to show you of the stall. Just these 3 of some sweet Minimoopy makers.
The little cat girl had the most amazing colour sense - she knew exactly what she wanted and that's going to be one fab Moopy. I'm hoping to catch up with some of the finished softies in the future.
I used this Halloween tree to display some of my wares - batty peg making kits and ghostie lollies.
The lollies sold really well, which I had expected, but the surprise bestseller was some Christmas Organizers which I never even photographed. I sold out - people were so keen on them I even sold the sample I made for folks to play with!
But I think the thing I enjoyed most was the chance to chat to people - a real advantage of doing an event in my own community. Folks I knew, even very vaguely, were by far and away my best customers. Actually, I had to hold myself back - a little voice in my head kept saying "Close the deal! Quick - don't let them put it back down on the table." I may have watched a little too much of The Apprentice recently!
Without getting teary on you though - I couldn't have done it without you guys. Folks were stunned when I explained that the Minimoopy fabrics had been donated from all round the world by people I don't actually know in real life. And your feedback on some of the stuff I made really gave me the confidence to put myself out there without being scared. So whether you posted me fabric or left a kind and supportive comment, or posted a tutorial which taught me something new, thank you. Thank you for your part in a truly memorable day.
