Craft Fair! - Tunbridge Wells AEC
So I had my first craft fair - it was organised by Bev Russell from Tunbridge Wells Adult Education as a chance for students to learn how to sell and to promote the courses.
Was a bit daunting to start with as I didn't know anyone - was the only person from my Soft Furnishings course who exhibited.
Had few pieces pre-prepared, but when I realised just a few days beforehand that I had a whole table to fill on my own I panicked and spent every spare hour sewing - which was great fun - but slightly stressful.
Wasn't the busiest craft fair I have ever been to and halfway through after only selling three things I was feeling a little despondent but things did pick up towards the end.
The best part was meeting all the other sellers - such a lovely bunch of people.
Can't wait to do my next fair now!!
