|The wind kept blowing our display board down, so we rearranged.|
|A beautiful day to sew outside|
I think the most common comment was that people had never seen anyone sew on a treadle, or didn't know anyone still sewed on a treadle.
It was great fun, I got some good exposure as an artist and saw a lot of friends I haven't seen in a while, since I worked in Statesboro for years. And I even got the basic quilting/thread sketching done on several pieces while I was there.
And I learned a lot about having an artist's booth. I need a better display, mine kept blowing over in the wind. I forgot to bring cards, next time bring cards and handouts with references on sewing machines and art quilting. And if I do ARTsFEST again, I'll bring along a handcrank sewing machine and let people try it.
Have a great week, more later.
