Not wishing to boast or anything – oh, go on then, I got a commission, I got a commission! Can’t believe how happy this makes me although I still haven’t sold anything through any of my online shops but this is a start – maybe!
Anyway, we had our first craft fair of the year in the beautiful village of Hingham, Norfolk and business was quite brisk. It was only a small village hall affair, but all of the other crafters were really friendly (as always) and Sally who organised the affair was very efficient – there was also lots of tea and cake which is a must at these events.
Anyway, my friend Lucy and I were really happy to be speaking to real people again (our last craft fair was in November) and although I love all my cyber contacts there is nothing like asking people their opinions about your work face to face. I am happy to report that comments were extremely favourable and my fabric pictures went down a storm. So much so that a lovely lady asked me to make a fabric picture for a friend of hers who has just had a baby, with the child’s name on. Obviously I agreed and I hope that you like the finished product.
I was so pleased with it that I have decided to offer personalised pictures in the hope that my “unique selling point” will mean that I make that crucial first sale on Folksy, Etsy or my new shop website, WowThankYou.
I would love your comments on the fabric pictures – good or bad – it is always great to get your feedback!
