Knit and Crochet conference in July

What an adventure -- I am looking forward to the TKGA/CGOA conference in Manchester in late July.  I really wanted to teach, but that was not to be.  So I'm going anyway, to stitch and hang out and see friends from past conferences and have a great time.  Then the email came soliciting vendors/exhibitors for the marketplace.  Why not have a booth to show a variety of things I have made and produced over the years?  So my sweetie asks, "Do you have enough things to display in a 10x10 booth?"  Um, yeah. So now the fun is all about planning what to put in it and how to make it look.  And, of course, what is a booth without a handout, so a brochure is in the works.  All very low-key.  How wonderful it will be to have my stuff out on view for a change.  And I have a guaranteed place to hang out and stitch for a few days - doing what I love best:  demonstrating things like splitting yarn (making sport/fingering weight in colors that are so available in worsted), foundation stitches in lots of flavors, making flowers, or stitching on the diagonal.  Might make a pair of socks or footlets or wrist warmers or doll clothes - lots of great little projects. Or maybe a big project, like finishing a sweater I started with super bulky weight yarn.
