Anyway, here are a few images taken during the sale. I didn't have much time to wander around with a camera, being busy either selling or demonstrating (spinning and knitting) much of the weekend.
Sally Raskoff making a ply-split basket:
And one of her completed baskets, which I bought. It's tiny, about 4 inches across (including fringe) and only one inch deep. Made with silk yarns in a peach-to-brick range of hues that Sally twisted using a power drill attachment:
And a few views of various displays included in the sale:
Below, a beautiful display of bead-woven artwork and sculptural pieces by Rebecca Smith and tapestries by Deborah Shoenberger:
Seen as a boutique with an incredibly wide variety of fiber art, it was altogether a successful display. I haven't heard the details of our financial accomplishments yet. I know that almost $1000 of my pieces sold (a lot of the silly ruffle knit scarves, and a lot of dish towels, plus a couple of bigger pieces) and the weavers who design and create garments were mostly expressing satisfaction with the fact that their cars were much less full on the homeward trip than they had been coming to set up the show on Friday.
DH and I have one more craft show this pre-holiday season, the KPFA show in San Francisco the weekend of December 8-9 (more about that show in a later post), so I'll be busy knitting more silly ruffle scarves between now and then. It's a perfect activity for the TV-watching hours after dinner...can't just sit there and do nothing, right?
