The Sewing and Craft show in Victoria was quite fun. We got down to Victoria on Wed. night and had a relaxing evening then Thursday we set up. Lately I have had 10X20 booths but this show is expensive so I got my usual 10X10 booth. I took enough yarn for a 10 X30 booth and somehow we crammed it all into the booth quite nicely. Raven helped us set up and sell yarn all weekend. She got some great pictures of the set up chaos. She was a great help right to the end. I actually got a picture of the booth this time. It is truly amazing how much yarn we got in this booth and could still move around. I prefer a big booth but this worked. There were times when the booth had about 10-15 shoppers in it too.
I also taught sock knitting at Victoria so with the help of Joan and Mary there are now 26 new sock knitters in the world. It was fun to teach with Joan and Mary we worked really well together and all of the students are now sock knitters. They each turned the heel and were well on their way to the toe before we left.
We pulled down the booth in record time again and went out for dinner. What a nice weekend. This week I will be getting ready for the Knitting Retreat coming this weekend at TsaKwaluten lodge. We still have room available if you have been thinking about coming and just not sure. You have until Thursday to register.
The classes are going to be great but you can just come and knit - enjoy the peaceful surroundings of Quadra Island. Sat night should be really good with Holli Yeoh of Bees Knees Knits. We are having a fashion show with little models for her sweaters and she will be talking about her inspirationand ideas. This should be inspiring.
Friday night we are having a huge blow out sale at the store for the Retreat participants. The sale will continue Sat but it may be picked over well by then.
For everone coming - See you all at the retreat.
