I made the incredibly difficult decision last night to put new knit on order items on hold until after Renegade. I really hate doing that, but I did the math. The decision was simple. There was no possible way to finish my current orders and build more stock for Renegade and get a booth set up together and do some dry runs and do all the other things that go along with a craft show, if I had ONE more knit on order item that needed to get out by next week. (And I thought my head my explode with one more, too.)
I finished new fiber/care tag labels today, which I now get to print a gazillion of, loop together with my hangtags (which I need to print a gazillion of too), and then attach to goodies, along with price stickers. I think I can knock out the whole thing in a couple to few hours. I'll share photos of a final goody!
I did that while knitting an order and packaging a pile of orders. I am The Queen of Multitasking.
I'm starting the next pile of orders, and am doing some booth shopping/prep tomorrow, I hope! Goodwill, here I come! :)
I would love your help with a crucial question! I need to make a bag decision tomorrow. Plastic bags, like those ones at the supermarket, are actually not legal in San Francisco. Which isn't a bad thing at all! I have some paper handle bags already, which I'll put Phydeaux logos on. But do people really expect bags at craft shows? I rarely ask for them - I usually put my purchases in my tote bag or backpack or whatever I'm carrying. What's your experience???
OK, back to knitting for me! Thanks for your help! :)
