Patchwork Show

I had such a great time this weekend at the Santa Ana Patchwork show! This was my 2nd Patchwork show in this location and my 3rd Patchwork show overall, and something about it was just special. I am still relatively new to the whole local craft show scene, but I really started feeling the love from the community.

(I iron the table cloth the night before and it’s still a wrinkly mess!)

I got to stop by and say hi to some of my favorite local Etsy sellers (Sass & Peril and Sweet Perversion). My booth got visits from the lovely Natalie, of Take the Cannoli, Dave from Fresh Rags, and Nikki from Delovely Details! It was really special to see familiar faces. Or hearing “I’ve seen you on Etsy!” “I bought this card for my boyfriend and he loved it” “I love your new stuff!”

It was just really humbling. But it was also a little sad because it’s very likely it’s my last show in California. Next year, I’ll be moving somewhere and I will have to start all over in a new community. It’s sort of a scary thought, to feel like you are building up your business’s presence in an area and then leaving it hanging to venture somewhere new.

Ah well, I guess that’s why it’s called an adventure right?
