Success at the Bloom Craft Fair!

The wait is finally over. After months of sewing like mad, the Bloom Craft Fair is done and I had a wonderful time! I've had boxes of quilts and crayon keepers and bags lined up against the wall in my bedroom and it is so nice to have them out of the way.

I got up bright and early on Saturday morning so I could get the right table. As you can see, I had loads of stuff! Last April, the tables were a lot closer together and I had trouble fitting everything in my space. This time was great. The tables were more spaced out and I had plenty of room to put my coat rack and even the quilt rack that usually lives in my bathroom. There I am above, half hidden by all the hats and the Christmas tree!

I was so busy getting everything just right that I totally forgot about pictures. My mom obliged me by taking some for me. Thanks Mom! I had all my iPhone covers laid out with 4 different belt clips to choose from. Thanks Amy Friend at for your wonderful pattern and permission to sell them.

I had burp cloths and crayon keepers and hats, both knitted and sewn. I thought it was a great time of year to sell Christmas ornaments, but I didn't have much luck there. I did sell a few wall quilts though.

I brought my quilt rack just in case and there was plenty of room for it. I didn't sell any baby quilts, but the coffee cup quilt was purchased.

All of my scarves and owl bags fit nicely on the coat rack, with room for the Christmas stockings in the middle. Again I was surprised that the stockings didn't sell well. I'll list the ones that are left on Etsy and refrain from stocking making in the future:) I prefer quilting!

All in all, it was a fun day out. Since I go to that church, I knew a lot of the people that came through and it was nice to just get out and chat. The added bonus was a big stock reduction and lots of sales, yay! Thanks so much to the Bloom organizers. You did a great job!


  1. Congratulations! on selling a lot of your stuff. I am sure it was nice not having to take so much back home.
