1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Figuring out how much to make for a show on: January 09, 2016 01:47:48 PM

I hope the link is OK.  I've been pondering the question of how to figure out how much stock I need to make to take to a show beyond the 'as much as you can make' standard.   I've come up with a couple ways to try and estimate maximum number of sales possible to try and put a cap on the amount needed to take.  I've posted it on my blog.

I haven't done an expo but my understanding is that most people attending are looking for information and freebies.  The crafters I've talked to don't seem to think they are at all worthwhile.  That goes for the baby and wedding ones as well.

Well that is just weird.  Thanks for letting me know.

Finally getting my digitizing mojo back.  This is the test stitch of my latest design, a small bear.  His brothers are going to be bigger and I think that some of them might just insist on wearing a tutu.  There are a few more gents on the way.  I'll post when I get them stitched out.

The Details.  Drawn by me.  Digitized using Stitch Era Design.  Stitched on fleece with fleece applique.  Approximately 5.5 inches tall.  

By the way...I can't get any pictures to load using the craftster photo hosting.  It looks like I have some old photo gummed up in processing.  

Well shoot.  It shows up in preview.  I'll go start a ticket.

Beautiful! I have stitched that Urban Threads pattern myself and I love how bright and cheery yours is!

I love it too. They have the BEST designs!

Thanks.  This is one of the rare times when all of the fabrics I used were from the same collection.  It is called High Street by Lily Ashbury for Moda.  I want to make a bed quilt out of them but only have wee scraps left.

This one is my last off-season Project Quilting Challenge project.  The prompt this time was to be inspired by the snowball block.  I found these fabrics in a lovely shop in Florida.  Thus the reference to snowbird.  I don't like snowball blocks.  I didn't want to make them but I found the gorgeous Urban Threads design for the center and was off and running.  It also measures 20 x 20 inches.  It is made of quilter's cotton.  I used an embroidery design snowflake for the quilting.
