Highlights From Our Sale

BEFORE this past weekend this was just another sweet little house on
Pine Street.
Two sisters and some great friends transformed it into a
Shopping Mecca for the Holiday shopper.

Ten Fiber artist & me participated in the project. I don't consider
myself one of the artist, but am sure glad they let me
play with them.
These are a few of the things I contributed.

We used every inch of the downstairs to display the merchandise.
The quilts, table runner,and sweater were all for sale.

We had lots of knitters and one weaver on hand.

One person did homemade truffles.
Oh, so tasty.

The dining room table became our focal point. We started the show with
everything on it in blues, as the sale progressed we had to
re merchandise and added some browns.

One gal, a seamstress and embroider, had some
wonderful aprons to sell.
Isn't the quilt on the wall great?

Christmas stockings of every shape and size.
Some were knitted, some quilted, and others felted.

These guys were the hit of the party. We started with two dozen
and sold every one.

Some of our weaver's wares.

As shoppers arrived they signed up for an incredible
door prize. It was a great way to increase of
mailing list.

The kitchen was set with refreshments.
We served hot and cold cider along with an
assortment of goodies.
Susan had food items for sale as well.
She had brownie kits, cranberry relish, and
spiced nuts, all holiday standards in our home.

I created some holiday garden stakes, sold all but one.

Susan sheep ornaments were on hand,

as well as many others.

Beautiful knitted ball.

This dramatic scarf was one of many, many

Cute, cute child's cupcake hat.

One of my personal favorites were these hand crafted
felted birds.

Are they not fabulous?

They were actually pins you could wear on your shoulder
or hat.

Well it's over for another year. Its time to get our little
home back in order and get ready for Thanksgiving.
I'm so thankful I know so many talented people
and we can do a show and sale like this.
Everyone is already thinking what we'll do next year
to make it even better.

I'm linking this week with:
