I have some amazing girls I meet with to sew/drink coffee with on a Tuesday night. Last year we ventured from around our kitchen tables into the world of craft fairs.
It took our hobbies into a different light, placed them under the lens of a business eye.
The most basic of insecurities…would people like us? would our ‘handmade’ be good enough to sell?
We felt a little vulnerable and a bit exposed.
We blocked out the October-December period as our craft fair ‘season’ and allowed ourselves to enjoy the rest of our year free from the focus of selling our wares!
When next year rolls round, whether or not we do it again I’m not so sure, but we’ll enjoy this wee taster for now.
