sewing for the mini market


There's a mini market happening at work next week for anyone who makes things or is into a craft of some sort. Not sure how successful it will be, but I decided it would be my first foray into the world of selling my work in a face-to-face situation. 

I should imagine it will be quite different to selling online, and I'm not the best at promoting myself or my work, which is why I like selling online. I can list it and leave it. I think in a market situation I need to actively sell my work. Not sure how that's going to pan out.

Not sure about it at all.

Anyway, I've been sewing to get enough stock to make a table look pretty, and have finished another quilt in lovely pastels.
And I made a table dressing with the scraps from my last quilt.



I've still got one more quilt to finish.
I'll keep you posted!

Carole :)

Good luck Carol!
Your work is beautiful and should sell itself but I hear you on how selling face to face is different.

Hi Carole, I'm sure you'll be fine selling face to face. Your work is so lovely that you'll get lots of lovely feedback and you'll relax right into chatting with potential customers :)

I think you will find that your work will sell itself. Good luck with it all.

Your work is lovely and is sure to sell itself. Just be 'yourself' and you will enjoy yourself and others will too!
