Craft Shows

Craft Show Season Has Arrived.

I worked 8 hours.  I drove 3 hours.  I tagged hats.  And now it’s time for a craft show!

Tomorrow, I’ll be at Delmont Apple ‘n Arts Festival from 10am – 6pm and then on Sunday, October 2nd from 11am – 5pm.  Even though it’s supposed to rain and be cold, we’re looking forward to a great weekend.  Stop by if you’re in the area!

This is the nitty-gritty side of craft shows – the pre-night calm before the storm.  Here’s what my family room currently looks like.

134 crocheted hats ready for their debut into society tomorrow.  I think they’re ready.

It’s crazy to see a whole year’s worth of work laid out… and I’d still like to have about 100 hats more.  Oh well, until JJCrochet expands and hires another employee, this is all my work and I’m proud of it.  Graduating from college, moving to a new city, starting a new job, and working 40 hours a week while managing a business.  It’s a crochet business, but still – show a girl some love! 🙂

    Wow! Your hats are gorgeous AND It’s amazing that you can make so many! I love to crochet, especially hats, but I can’t imagine having the time to make that many and work, too! Yeah for you! Good luck with the craft shows! Your website is great, too!

    Amazing! That is a ton of hats. I’m hoping that next year I can take on a premature hat challenge since this year it was blankets. This whole posting has really inspired me. Thanks.. I hope your craft show was a success.
