I'm back with more! Here's a pair of photos of my set-up from the show, one in the dry and one following a bit of rain. Saturday, though mostly dry, did have a few short but heavy rain showers.
This is a couple of pictures of booths near mine, shortly after a short rain.
So, about those interesting people - one of those who stood out was a guy who mentioned he's a naturalist. His attention was drawn to my machine embroidered butterflies, as he was among several people who thought from a bit of a distance that they were real specimens and wanted a better look. We had a really neat conversation about bugs, nature, conservation, educating people, fear of certain animals, etc.
The overall feedback on these was really fantastic. A member of the Mississauga Stitchery Guild was visiting the show and stopped by my booth. She was so impressed, she has asked me to come to a Guild meeting sometime to show them and possibly do a demonstration on the techniques!
Another great experience in the show was a photographer for SNAP Mississauga came by and took my photo with some of my work. I'll have to check in a little bit to see if anything from that gets printed.
