Getting ready for the Holiday Artisan Market 2009

I'm tatting jewelry items like mad for the Holiday Artisan Market 2009, held at Milwaukee's Discovery World Museum on December 5 and 6. From past experience, I anticipate that the tatted jewelry will sell quite well. Hand dyed thread skeins don't go over so much in a general market. But the organizers have me on the vendor's list as selling both, so I'll bring along a few skeins anyway. Here's a photo of the way my booth looked last year.

The earrings in the top photo are tatted from Elizabeth's "Long Elegant Earrings" pattern, which she has for sale in her "Elizabeth's Lace" shop on Etsy. How nice that she has given permission to the purchasers of her pattern to sell the earrings we make from it - thanks, Elizabeth!

Since the readership of this blog is worldwide, probably not very many live close enough to actually attend this event, but just in case here is a link to the pdf flier about it.

I'll be wearing tatting and demonstrating tatting as well as selling.

Lovely color choice on the earrings -- they look like wisteria blossoms.

I recognized Elizabeth's style right away but your stiches are so perfect I thought that she had made them! Have a great time at the show!

Hi Marilee, I am sure that you are going to do well at the sale this weekend. How can anyone resist your creations.

Happy to hear you did well at the show. I don't get the "how tedious" remark at all ~ as you said, "takes all kinds."
I don't gush! It isn't in my personality. But WOW I LOVE your earrings and the threads you chose. It's the color that makes them pop!

hugs and best wishes, B
