It’s not like I have hidden away to crochet. Lots of folks around here know me by sight, from years of crocheting while walking my dog – he was the type that sniffed and commented as we walked twice a day, perfect for me to work on small projects like socks, hats, motifs, washcloths, or the start of something bigger. And I wear and use what I make - sweaters, tops, socks, purse, wallet, hat – so I have a certain look. But few people have seen my work area, and now a version of it will be in the marketplace at the show, out there, just like that.

One friend, finding out about this project, said, “Of course you’ll have business cards, right?” Well, duh, of course I have business cards. Then another friend added, “So, what will your brochure look like? It’s not a real booth without a brochure.” Oh. So now I have a brochure.
It feels different. Choosing from a lifetime of swatches and finished pieces, I am putting my money where my mouth is. What a ride!
