Photos from Concinnity Convention

That's me with a minion :)

My dear husband Jan, helping with my display of tatted jewelry.

Another view of my display.

My tatted belt in radiant orchid.

The  tatted high collar grabbed a lot of attention from passersby.

View of my rack of tatted earrings from my table, with shoppers in the background.

More shoppers at the Concinnity vendors area.
Concinnity was great fun! My tatted jewelry got lots of admirers, and even some sales! People did take my fliers about the Greater Milwaukee Tatting Guild, so I'm expecting the guild membership to grow. I also had business cards out for the Etsy shop, and Craftsy cards. A few folks remarked that they remembered a grandmother or other relative who used to tat. To the young people this was an entirely new craft they had not heard of before (different from tattooing), and they made remarks like, "Awesome!" and "So cool!". My dear husband, Jan, took breaks from assisting me to attend some of the convention presentations, including Real Victorian Technology, World's Fair, Practical Airships, and 50 Years of Dr. Who. Next time I really will have to teach him how to handle sales alone, so that I can get away to attend some of the fascinating presentations myself!

Everything you make is so incredible and unique! I don't know how anyone could resist buying. The belt turned out very nice, and the beads at an angle are perfect. It certainly looks like a fun place. Did you get to take a minion home? I think everyone needs a minion!

That looks like such a fun time! I wonder if Dave would ever attend something like that with me? We may find out in a couple of years. ;-)

Looks like a great day out, with good publicity for future tatters and sales.

The tatted belt you wore looks amazing. The color is so striking. Wonderful display of your work and that photo with the minion is one to keep. Thank you for all your wonderful patterns.

Thanks, everyone. It was fun!

Lace-lovin' Librarian ~ Diane, definitely I think both you and Dave would enjoy it. It's an event that has so much going on, there's something to appeal to everyone. I'll bring the flier the next time we get together.

I'm sure your display caught a lot of attention - it looked great. It was great your husband came along to help - train him up nice for next year so you can catch some of the presentations. This looks like a lot of fun.
