Working the Vendor Booth for Back to Back Fiber....

So this was my first experience working a vendor booth....and I have to say it was so much fun. The time just flew by.  Hubby and I met so many new friends and had an amazing time. I have to thank Sue Bunch, the owner of Back to Back Fiber for trusting us enough to allow us to run her booth for her. I hope we did her justice!

Our little store front...

What it looks like unloading the Jeep for conference when you
are teaching 4 workshops and running a vendor booth.
Sue also had 4 boxes of fiber sent to the hotel.
We stayed at the Hotel Madison in Harrisonburg in Virginia and it was amazing! 
it is right next to JMU's art building so the location was perfect.

I could not have done this with out Kelly Dean! As I was walking by she said "may I help you with anything".....Well ....yes you can!!! Kelly was just so awesome helping me set up the booth, arrange everything and help me teach.
BIG thank you Kelly!

We got so busy we had to add on another table. 

If you would like to order any felting supplies

Scrappy Creatures...

 One of my very favorite adult art lessons to teach is
Scrappy Creatures.
What is so surprising is that so much cuteness comes out of
a wire hanger and plastic shopping bags. 
After learning this lesson I realized it would be an amazing
way to upcycle or recycle all those useless plastic bags that just get
used one time and then wind up in the oceans harming the sea life.

Plus I just love clearance sale stuff! I just keep buying it and
telling hubby "it's for my Scrappy Creatures". It really makes
my hordes of material and pompoms sound legitimate!

 This is Poosette, he found his forever home this summer.

 And this is Zooset.

 This is parent night at my school. We had a blast creating new creatures.

This is Farris who was a gift to the worlds best book binding teacher.

 This is my amazing class from the Center for the Arts in Manassas, Virginia at Windy Knoll Farms.
So so so cute!

This is Geffory, he went to his forever home last year.

This is Ms. Pauletta Peadmont, she also found her forever home last year.

Welcome to the world Delila!
