It occurred to me I never gave an update to the first craft cafe and the latest news for the next one on the 17th.
Well, the first one was the day we had that freaky snowstorm after the beautiful friday. the good news is there was some traffic. the church made $500 on concessions and there were $200 in sales for the vendors. But still there would have been a better turnout if we could have gotten the flyers up (they would have been eaten by the snow) and the weather would have had folks out.
There are some changes we put in place for the next one:
First - the time has been changed from 12-5 to 10-3
Second - every vendor will be responsible for their own transactions because we've taken out the 10% buy in.
Third - stitchcraft members who don't have enough inventory or who don't want their own spot, can share a table and split the cost of the table fee. for members, the table fee can be paid the day of the show. but you have to pay your share of the table fee before you can put your items on display and I'm going to place a restriction of five folks per table.
Some of you (like me) may want their own space, you can pay for your spot via paypal or the day of the show but the rule still applies that if we've never seen your work, you have to come to a meetup and bring a sample.
April W. has convinced me we should have a sale outdoors and if I can get the church to approve it, the may, june shows will be outside - probably the july and august ones as well if it goes the way we like.
also, there is a separate Craft Cafe meet up page that you can go to and view what vendors are signing up and what items will be at the next show.
so, if you are interested in signing up to share a spot or if you want a spot of your own, drop me a line or just go ahead and sign up.
It started as a way for people who like knitting to sit around and knit but since then...
we've done craft shows
gone on road trips
do movies and dinner
spend time with each other that doesn't even involve a needle or a hook
and we still knit and crochet....
want to have some fun with a really crazy group of people? We range in age from our 20's to our 70's, we are diverse in almost every area you can think of and still we manage to enjoy each other's company.
If you are interested in spending some down time with some seriously fun people (mostly women but a few men have been known to drop by) then consider coming to one of our meetups,
