Holiday Artisan Market at Discovery World

 Here's how my yarnplayer booth looked at the Holiday Artisan Market at Discovery World, on Saturday, Dec. 4.

Sales were a bit slow, but I made plans for teaching 2 new tatters, and my tatted atoms were enthusiastically approved for the Discovery World museum gift shop.

I tatted earrings while sitting at my booth, and someone bought the pair I'd been working on! Here's a photo of them taken while in progress. I was using my Carnival pattern in my hand dyed size 20 thread from the Stardate batch.

The event continues on Sunday, Dec. 5th.

Marilee,
Everyone will be dug out by tomorrow, so I have a feeling that more will show up. It's cool that you sold the earrings that you was making there. Love the thread colors you have too. They all are in the Holiday colors! Thanks for sharing with all of us & teaching us about this lovely event. Plus you have more students to teach too. Christmas is coming early for you isn't it? You go, girl!!!

Very nice display. Teaching two more tatters is great but am hoping for better sales. You're a very generous person and I'd like the shoppers to be generous to you.

Hope Sunday proves to be a big hit. I love your Stardate HDT, so I'm not surprised the earrings sold so quickly. Congrats on having your tatted atoms approved for the gift shop! Awesome!

Thank you, everyone.
Good news - the lady in charge of the gift shop plans to have me teach tatting classes at Discovery World in 2011! It won't be until at least April because they are already booked with other happenings until then, but she gave me a firm "Yes, please!" and we worked out some of the details already. I'll post the dates when we actually get those on the calendar.
