Well the craft sale is over.  Not a stellar one, but I was able to demonstrate rug hooking to over 75 people in 7 hours.  That’s 10 people per hour, or one every 6 minutes.  Actually, in-between sales and the people who didn’t want a demonstration, it worked out to a group of 2 – 5 people every 10 minutes.  So it wasn’t all bad.  If nothing else people know more about rug hooking here.

I did manage to hook more on “Wind” while there.  Not enough for another photo though.  Too much demonstrating!

While at the craft show I had a funny thing happen.  An older lady came up to me and told me it was inappropriate to be demonstrating my craft at the sale.  That I should only be selling.  But with people not knowing what rug hooking was, I don’t see how I could get around it.  I told her I found I had better results at sales when I demonstrated.  I certainly gathered more interest!  Interesting…  I might try an experiment and leave my frame home next time to see if I garner any more sales.  I doubt it.  But might be worth a trial.
