Net backdrop.

Booth construction is a new challenge.  Fishing line, specifically 20 or 25 pound fishing line, 10mm crochet hook.  Ch-3 net stitch.  Fairly quick to make.  Very stretchy.  Feels kind of fun.  Tied to the side beams and a few points across the top, I have a net ground for hanging things.  Still need to arrange how things will hang, but here I’m just testing to make sure it won’t break easily – some archival pieces (contest winners from the 70’s and 80’s, plus sweaters pictured in my Threads articles, and some fun little cardigans for smalls).  The black background simply covers my bookshelves – at the show it will be a clear view to the next booth on each side.  I may like this.  We’ll see if it works.
