I am so happy for your sake that you did well. It is always a worry whether your things will sell and such a boost when it does!!! Well done. Hope the aches and pains will soon be under control again.***

Congrats, Vichy! I hope your next shows are successful too. Most people still spend a lot for Christmas presents, fingers crossed it will include embroidered items - seeing all the new Christmas patterns it looks as if digitisers still do, hope potential buyers do too.

Hi Martine...and thank you..it seems that the embroidery loving crowd doesn't come to the crafting scene, in fact out of all the vendors there were only 2 of us with embroidered items...isn't that strange?

Congratulations!
You must give quality knitwear at a good price and its much appreciated! When I knit for long periods my hands hurt but I still do-pain cream, heat treatment and Tylenol!

Glad to hear from you. What were your knit wear items? Sounds as if the weather was nice.

Weather was perfect...I was selling mostly my sweaters. I start with a pattern and then deviate the heck out of it, so I can never duplicate it and everyone gets a one of a kind.....

Congratulations Vicki. Glad to hear you did well. I like to knit but am much faster at crocheting. Alas when I got the sewing emb. machine I do very little of either anymore. Bet I've crocheted enough afghans to go 'round the world and baby things/LOL. It's good to hear of successful sales these days. Around here they want but want it for nothing/Lillian

Lillian, people around here are the same, they act like they are at a flea market and expect to dicker the price with crafters....I am reasonable to begin with and will not budge...we all work for free anyway, we shouldn't have to give the product away as well, right?

basketkase by basketkase 10 Sep 2012

as well right?

Vegging out is good! I've noticed that there has been a lot of interest in knitting lately. Some of the threads are gorgeous, but $$$ too. But I guess it pays to diversify! Glad you had a good day!

basketkase by basketkase 09 Sep 2012

You are so right, some of the yarns are ridiculous and I have to stay away from the high end cost, as no one is going to pay for the finished product, but I do really well on line finding bargains on knock off that feel like the high end without the price.....

You've seen my designs, Pam...I cover the whole gambit.....and still????? Seems like the Christmas show is where I sell the most embroidery work....

CONGRATS, Vicki!! You are so incredibly talented, I can see why folks want to buy your work. Interesting though that the knitted goods sold more quickly than the embroidered items. Everyone I know loves embroidered clothes, linens, etc, and all of us buy them at the store. You're right ... go figure!:) Again, congratulations, my friend!
Hugs

I don't know why people don't buy embroidered things more, if you watch in the store people always buy clothes that are embroidered, I always did and still do! That's why hubby bought me my machine.

basketkase by basketkase 09 Sep 2012

I know, it is a phenomenon I don't understand.....maybe I should double my prices and charge what the stores charge and people will buy more...LOL!!!
