At the market day stall were exceeded with sales well in excess of what I had thought and many of the items were sold out very early especially the bowl cosies, wine bottle gift bags, Easter treat bags and tooth fairy pillows.
The placemats, childrens aprons, bibs, small make up bags and glasses cases were also very popular.
There were other stall holders as well selling jewellery, cards, Easter eggs in cute packaging, jams and chutneys as well as raffia plant holders. From what I can ascertain everyone was very happy with their takings on the day.
The social committee has decided to hold a Spring fair in September so the items not sold yesterday will go towards my stall then. I will need to increases quantities of those good selling items and look at making some Christmas themed items such as small stockings, tablerunners and ???? to fill the gap of the Easter treat bags. At least I have just over 5 months this time to think about what to make instead of just 5 weeks notice that was given for market day.
While I am thinking about that the RSC colour for April is pink. I had made a start on sewing up pink scraps into slabs sometime ago but that is as far as they got. Now is the time to convert them into bibs.
I finished reading the book in my last post and thoroughly enjoyed it. The mystery behind the art work was interesting and I can imagine from what I have read and learnt of the era that the circumstances would have occurred even though it was fiction.
The next book to read is
My quilting student has had her quilt returned from the longarmer and she has finished the binding. After much consideration it was decided to leave the snowflakes off that she was tatting.
Back soon and in the meantime
Happy sewing all
