2017 Fall and Winter Show Schedule

Hi everyone!!  Seasons go by so fast, and it’s been a while since I have written.  I have been busy with a family member staying with us since September of last year.  She sleeps in my sewing room, so it has been a challenge getting in there to sew, but I have done it!  You can always check my Facebook page for up to the minute creations.  I have been working on new ideas, and bringing back some older ones.  I started making “sets” of matching hat, arm warmer, and leg warmers.  Some really fun colors.

Update on 2015 Shows

 

2014 Artist Row Award

2014 Artist Row Award

I received a letter from the show “Christmas in the Country” in Hamburg, NY (November 5th-8th), and they informed me my category is full, but not to be discouraged because I am on a wait list, so if a spot becomes available they will contact me.  They approved my application, so that’s good!!!  Wait and see on that event.

I am super HAPPY, and excited to find out that the Artist Row show at the Rochester Public Market is being held on Sunday, September 20th!!  So I will be able to participate at both Clothesline (September 12-13), and Artist Row!  Yay!  Artist Row was a great show last year, and I won an award in my category!!  I’m so honored!!  So glad to be participating in this event again this year!  
I have submitted all of my applications to the shows I hope to participate in, and will find out if I have been accepted when the jury process is complete for each show.  They all have a different process, and timeline, so I will find out when I find out!!! 😉
I’ll keep you posted!  I will also post the schedule, and updates on my Facebook page and website.  Stay connected!!  
Thank you for the love and support!!!  I feel it!
Peace,
Karen

See you in September

Roycroft 2014The Roycroft Summer Artisan show last weekend was a very nice event.  My husband Jack helped me at this show.  He grew up in the area, so we have always enjoyed visiting East Aurora, and were excited to participate in the show.  We have a good friend that works at the Roycroft Inn, and we always enjoy staying there.   The Roycroft Inn is the most amazing place with beautiful grounds around the whole hotel, and incredibly delicious meals.  They are so accommodating of any request we have ever had.  We had an awesome snack at the bar before setting up the tent on Friday.  It was too late for lunch, and too early for dinner, but they had a “lite” menu available.   It was the best soup I have ever had, and I do remember enjoying it at other times we have stayed at the Roycroft.  The bartender said it has been on the menu since 1995.  That says something, for sure!  Jack had a substantial meaty sandwich, and I enjoyed some shrimp cocktail with my soup.  Perfect!!  Good beer selection for Jack, and the bartender made a great cosmo for me.
We set up for the show at the elementary school, which was super easy access, but it was also super HOT.  We got the tent set up, but ended up leaving the huge bags of sweaters inside the tent to hang up on Saturday morning.  That turned out to be a great idea because it was much cooler at 9am on Saturday.  The temperature did climb up to about 88 degrees on both Saturday and Sunday…… which was a new experience for me.  I have only done one other show in the summer (last year), which did not end well with a huge summer rain storm.   I decided at that time that summer shows are not for me, but I was told that in order to be considered for the WINTER Roycroft artisan show, I would have to participate in the Summer show….. so Jack and I made a little vacation of it.  We enjoyed several delicious dinners out, had drinks, and hung out at the hotel, which is just a great place to be.   While at the show on both days we had so many people comment on the hot weather, and how it must be hard to try to sell sweaters….. but we had just as many, actually more, people that stopped in to admire, and actually try on the sweaters and arm warmers.  We did much better than I thought we would do in that heat, so I was happy with that aspect of the show.  
In the end, though, if I’m not comfortable (just too HOT), I’m not having fun…… so since this sweater gig is something I do because I enjoy it, no more summer shows!  
So I hope to visit with you in the Fall……… the first show is Clothesline!!  Kreationality will be in Booth 6 at the Prince Street entrance of the show.
