Now that the American Craft Council show is behind me, I’m reflecting on what’s like to do any show for the first time. A lot of bigger shows always seem to write directions that you can only understand after you’ve gone through the process once, making life so much easier if you have someone giving you behind the scenes tips and tricks.
In effort to make shows go as smoothly as possible, and to tell you everything that I wish that I knew when I got started I’ve put together a craft show planning guide. For more information , click the image below.

When warping the loom I never count the ends, I just go until I feel that it's time to stop. I don't follow patterns, I allow and sometimes encourage the yarn to move as it wraps around the front beam. If a string breaks, I work it into the piece. I create from my soul. I speak to the yarn as we weave together, striving to create the perfect connection, and when we become in sync a fabulous scarf, full of honesty, joy, and personality emerges.
