In the previous post I talked about getting ready for the Denman Island Artists’ Studio Tour. Now, four days later I’ve unpacked my bags and put away all my display things and can reflect on the weekend.
The weather cooperated – sort of. Compared to last year’s torrential rain and cold temperatures this was lovely. Compared to how a summer weekend should be, it wasn’t great. There were showers, winds, sun and clouds. Mostly it was grey and iffy. We had arranged several quilts on fences and in the trees, where they really look awesome. But then they had to be brought under cover, where they don’t show well.
I sold several pieces on Saturday and nothing on Sunday. In fact, by Saturday lunch, I had made almost all of my sales. The comments and feedback all weekend were really positive. I handed out many business cards and, who knows, perhaps one of those people will be looking for something one day.
Overall, I’m satisfied with how the weekend went. I cleared out some older pieces and brought in some cash, which I’ll probably use for more fabric! Will I do it again next year? That’s a tough question and it’s way too early to know the answer. For now I’m happy to enjoy the remainder of the summer and think about new projects.
