Sedona Craft Show

Yesterday I was in Sedona for a craft show at the Sedona Historical Museum. What a beautiful setting! And the weather was beautiful, although a little warmer than I'm used to these days. This is my booth, which was situated on a side porch to the museum:
This is a picture of the red rocks behind the museum:

I could look at these all day and never get tired of them!
There is a lovely garden surrounding the museum, and I'm a sucker for cacti:

I can see some sketches, and maybe art quilts coming from the 2 images above, can't you?
This is a picture of Anne Marston, who had her booth next to mine:


Among her many artistic accomplishments, Anne is a weaver, and also spins her own yarn. She had this fabulous electric spinning wheel with her, and was spinning 'pencil roving' into delicious variegated yarn! She had beautiful hand woven scarves, many made from hand-dyed yarns. We had a great time chatting, although we both ended up a little warm when the sun hit our side of the Museum!

Finally, here I am by my booth:

Sales were a little slow, but we had a nice crowd, and I hope to hear back from some with custom orders!

What a beautiful day to be outdoors, Judy. I think sales are slow everywhere - which doesn't make it better for YOU, of course. There was an outdoor craft show here last week and people were just looking while they walked their dogs. Sigh...
Meantime, your shirts look great and I hope you get lots of follow-up orders.

Judy I just came back from Sedona, it was my first time in Arizona, it is a very peaceful place. I just notice that we are together in the same on-line class..woohooo!Our paths crossed again.
Your watercolor backgrounds are beautiful.
Are you planning on coming to this area to display your amazing work? Let me know, I can cook a latin treat for you.
warmest regards from Florida

Hi, Marga! It is a small world, isn't it? I'm glad you got to see Sedona, although I think there are way too many people there! As for a visit to Florida, I don't think I will be coming that way any time in the forseeable future... but thanks for the invite! And I'll see you on the class forum!
