First let me say that I am still having trouble with Photobucket and being able to upload my templates in their original size... I am losing my patience with it, honestly, but there is nothing I can do as of the moment. The woman that is helping me asked me to send her the file I was trying to upload... she successfully added it to my album but unfortunately, that does not help me... I have a few more I would like to add.
Onward: I have a couple of questions for all you ladies that do craft shows, if you would be so kind as to add your input. I stitched about 40 pillows for the Halloween/Thanksgiving/Christmas holidays this year... but I never completed them... so I am thinking about just going and going and maybe doing a craft show next year.
Now, I have never done a craft show before but I am thinking of just completing my pillows (and framed stitcheries) and making some dolls, bowl fillers, possibly some quilted table runners/wall hangings, room sprays and maybe even some dough ornies. I do work about 50 hours a week outside the home but I am thinking that if I work on this stuff throughout the year, I should have a pretty good inventory.
I would have to stay in my area and would absolutely LOVE to do the Sturbridge, MA fair (I'm going this weekend and I can't wait!)
So my questions are:
Are craft shows worth your time and effort?
Has anyone ever regretted doing it?
Can anyone tell me how to get started on being accepted to a craft show?
Also, do you accept credit cards and if so, how would I go about setting that up?
Anyone help that you can give would be VERY MUCH appreciated!
