26th Annual Harvest Holiday Craft and Quilt Show.

The show this past Friday and Saturday was very well run. I have been doing shows for about 6 yrs. and this is one of my favorites. This show was especially well organized. The men and women of the Senior Center went out of their way to answer our questions. Everyone was very friendly and provided any support needed. Our booths coordinated well with the quilt show being held simultaneously.

It is strange that I enjoy this show so much as it isn’t anything like others I do. There is a mix of booths. There are definitely some that would be considered crafty. But there were some art booths mixed in, including a lovely man from Chine who does the most amazing paintings. I bought one this year to go with the one I bought 3 yr. ago.

I am also slightly prejudiced toward Rocky River, as we lived here for close to 15 yrs. Our girls went from pre-school through high school in the RR school system. It was an incredible school system, a blue school most of the years the girls were there. They got an outstanding education.

And spending time at the lake? Wonderful.

Fall is a Perfect Time for a Show – and rings!

I continue to adhere to my new policy of limiting shows to one a month.  Before my knee infection and knee replacement, we did as many shows as we choose to, frequently 2-3 a month.  I guess I just have a better appreciation of what’s important.

 

Having said that, I have 1 scheduled for November and 1 scheduled for December.

 

On Nov. 7th and 8th, 9-4, please come to visit me at the Rocky River Senior Center for the 26th Harvest Holiday Craft, Antique & Quilt show. It really is a terrific show. I did it in 2012, before I got sick. The 1st day of the show was to be a Fri. at a Senior Center. Whoopee!! Not exactly a scenario for a successful day. Wow, was I wrong. It was a hugely successful day.

 
My favorite person was a middle-aged women who bought 2 of my rings on Friday early in then day. She came back a little while later and bought 2 more. The next day, she came back and asked if possibly I had other rings that I hadn’t put out. Actually I did have a few I didn’t put out for some reason. She bought 2 more.

So, in preparing for this years Rocky River show, I will be making a lot of rings!
