This past weekend my daughter’s school held a wonderful event. A Winter Craft Fair!
Not only did it feature handcrafted vendors, but it had fun sing-alongs, book readings, kids crafts, a hot-chocolate bar and a kid’s only shop where children could secretly shop for gifts for their parents!
I thought I’d share some pictures of some of the wonderful handmade items….

This particular fair was only 3 hours long. I love that my kids came and were kept busy by all the fun activities but got to stop in and “help” me. They typically just see me sewing away in my studio and don’t really have a good grasp of what it is that I work insane hours for. This gave them a “glimpse” into the “other” world I live in. The best part about this particular fair was that it was local so I knew many of the shoppers and vendors and was able to connect with many new people in my community. Since 99% of my business is done online, my physical presence and existence within my town is next to nothing….it’s always a good thing to get out wearing my “Sewplicity” hat and let people know I am here!
