summer craft show wrap-up + new tote bags

This past Saturday night I attended my last craft fair of the summer season at Squam Lake here in NH. It was such a lovely evening, and a wonderful way to cap off a summer of many craft shows. I feel like I learned so much preparing and attending events these past few months---a feeling I'm sure is shared by fellow makers who sell their work in person!

gallery of gifts 2012

In case you've been itching to get your hands on some handmade Salty Oat goodies, here's your chance! From now until December 22, you can find a few of my things for sale in the Gallery of Gifts at the Library Arts Center in Newport, New Hampshire (my home state!).
The annual holiday show features the work of a number of New England artists, and I'm excited to be included for the second time (I first participated two years ago). Among the items I sent, you'll find corduroy lunch totes, cross-stitch animal hoops, patchwork pillows, and cross-stitch pinback buttons.
If you're in the area, I hope you'll stop by the gallery and do a bit of holiday shopping and support a great organization!

Kait's adorable cup sleeves, pouches, and tea wallets.
Thank you to everyone who stopped by the table and supported our little businesses!

If you're in the area,...

merry mart

Here are a few pictures of my table at the start of Merry Mart, my very first craft show, a few weekends ago.  I was super nervous about the event, and stayed up very late the night before sewing, but I wound up having a blast.
I met lots of new people and saw some old friends, learned how to work my new Squarereader (it's amazing!), sold lots of napkins and pins, and left feeling very inspired...
