Hi Knitters! I just wrapped up my first fiber event, I vended at Fiber Exposition in Port Angeles WA and it was great fun!
This was the first year of the event so no-one had any idea on what to expect. I thoroughly enjoyed it as my first even vending and found that the small audience (a few hundred each day) was perfect for my first event. It wasn't too overwhelming and I hit my estimated goal!
We set up booths on Friday afternoon and evening, it was fun interacting with other vendors and seeing how everyone sets up for their own product. There were fiber vendors, yarn vendors, needle punch and rug hooking, different fleeces, and a few people with finished knits!
I had way too many bags prepped (newbie mistake) but now I have lots of bags prepped for the holidays and I can focus my attention more on designing. My mom (Susan) was my helper for the long weekend and I definitely couldn't have done it without here.
My booth highlighted bags in all three sizes and my patterns, I had lots of fun imagining how I wanted everything set up. All supplies for the booth set up were from my house so it was a great challenge to create the booth from what I had.
I'm so grateful for everyone who stopped by, gave compliments, and purchased from my booth. I made connections with local knitters and vendors from all over Washington! Very excited for 2023 and all the cool collaborations that will come!
