One Last Craft Mention

So it's an amicable separation.  This particular piece of news is worth sharing, here, there and everywhere, at least to me.

I went to the Go West Craft Fest last year, and really enjoyed it.  They have a great selection of crafters, something for literally every taste and price range.  Plus it takes place in a really cool old cemetery in West Philadelphia, with looming angels and obelisks and trees everywhere.

I attended last year.  This year, I got in!

Can you tell I'm a little excited?  This is a huge opportunity for me to show my stuff - far better than the neighborhood holiday show; this one gets a lot of press and the crowds last year were amazing.  Add that it'll be April, and spring will finally (hopefully) be here, and the trees will be blooming and, well, it should be a day to remember.

So please, please, if you're in Philly or the vicinity or over the bridge in Jersey, think about coming to the Craft Fest.  It'll be a fun day, I promise, and if you stop by to say hello, I won't make you buy anything.  I might direct you to the next table over, if they've got something great, no guarantees there.  But really, I'd love to see any of you who are local.  It'll make me feel like I'm still me, out there in the middle of all these people who pretty much do this stuff for a living.

Have a great weekend, all.  Sewing for Go West, and sewing for me.  (I might need a new outfit for this event.  No, I'll need a new outfit.)
