Setting up shop

The worst thing about doing shows is the set up once I am back at the ranch. It takes a few hours and after standing around at a show, I am ready to be spinning or creating again. Fortunately I had Sunday to put the shop back together, although I admit that I did not finish till 11 on Monday. I am debating not putting it back up after the San Diego show, since I would have to take it down 2 1/2 days later.
There was very little foot traffic at the show, which was a real shame based on how many vendors made it. I used the opportunity to hand out flyers for the wool festival. Hopefully lots of people will show! The Tucson Home magazine has an entry about it, but the magazine was not available at Barnes and Nobles last night, so I was not able to pick up a copy.
I noticed that my check for Stitches West has been cashed, so I am going for sure. It will be fun to see a large fiber show - as well as participate.

Hi Kathy, it was sure nice to meet you at the Southwest Fiber Festival last Saturday! I had so much fun there with so many interesting people, fibers and animals. I can't wait to try knitting up that shawl pattern that I bought from you with some beautiful cormo I got from Melanie and alpaca from Bosque Ranch . I've only been to a couple fiber festivals but had so much fun last weekend that I'll try to find more of them to go to. Again, good to meet you and I can't wait to try the pattern!
