Craneway Craft Fair Success
Thanks so much to all who came out to see us at the Craneway Crafts Fair! We had an amazing time, and the show was a great success. It was so inspiring to be surrounded by 200 other talented artists, designers and craftspeople.
We had never attended the show in previous years, so we went into the event without any idea of what to expect. We happened upon the show completely by chance; back in June, Ailee and I had taken a bicycle ride up along the beautiful Richmond waterfront, and happened to see people rolling garment racks full of handmade clothing into the Craneway Pavillion. On inquiry, we discovered that they were setting up for the KPFA Summer Crafts Fair (now called the Craneway Crafts Fair). We just knew that we had to get into the winter show!
We are so glad that we took the chance and applied to the show. It was wonderful being able to meet our customers face to face, and watch them fall in love with our clothing! Being a mostly online business, we don't usually get to see people try things on or feel the amazing softness of our silk, alpaca and merino knits for the first time. Some of our very favorite pieces went home with happy customers throughout the course of the weekend. It was a busy and exhausting couple of days (especially for Ailee, who was in the middle of a hectic holiday retail workweek), but it was so rewarding. We can't wait to do it again! Thanks so much to the organizers of the show, and to all of our new customers and fans.
Hope everyone has a great New Year, stay tuned for some great new designs in 2017!
