Always exciting in Edmonton are the constant farmer’s, artisans, pop-up and handmade markets throughout the city. I feel very fortunate to be able to take part in these events to be able to showcase my handmade products to locals. I have had much more luck selling items in person than online with Etsy.com
I love that at markets customers can come up and feel my yarns, rovings, batts, scarves and bags. When I have stuff for sale, I know that touching an item is a big part of wanting to purchase it.
Needless to say I’m in full gear for the upcoming Handmade Mafia Market on June 2, 2012. As always, I will have varied selection of hand spun yarns, uniquely dyed roving, crazy blended batts, squiggly scarves and a wonderful project bag.
Here are two Shetland rovings dyed with the season in mind. Bright green spring and late, lovely fall.
Newest from my studio are beautiful blended batts. Ranging from 40g to 75g in weight, these batts contain wool, silk, firestar, locks and sari silk.
