Hey Craftster geniuses! How do I display knitted mittens, scarves, and arm warmers? Has anyone done it before?

My original idea was to find two poles/dowels and some way of clamping them to the edge of a table, then stringing a clothesline across and clipping my stuff to the line with clothespins. Nice vertical display, allows for petting of the merch (mostly knit out of very soft acrylic) and keeps things relatively organized. However . . . I'm not sure HOW to actually do this, since I lack dowels, clamps, and clothesline, and am a penny-pinching cheapskate to boot  Wink

Any thoughts/sharing of past experience would be appreciated!

PS - Show is in two weeks.

Hiya! Some of my rambling ideas: maybe instead of clamping dowels to the table you could fix them to a base or insert them in a decorated bottle filled with sand, gravel or something else to weigh them down? You can usually pick up dowel quite cheap in diy/home improvement stores for a couple of pounds (or dollars!) then you could just tie the clothes line to the dowels, or fix it with duct tape to make it extra secure. Maybe have two shorter ones instead of one long one to make sure your goods don't put too much weight on it and tople it over? Great display idea though! I had something like it for my earrings last year but I (well my dad) fixed a dowel between two dowel poles which themselves were fixed to a base, but it worked really well. Good luck with the show!
