Well, the virtual Festival went very well!! I sold waaaaay more bags than I expected and had a lot of fun. I enjoyed posting on Facebook, answering questions and reading the comments, and seeing all the likes and loves tally up. Many people reported really appreciating the event, not only the vendors but those who would not have been able to be there in person. I expect virtual events will be a way of the future....or at least for the next few months. :)

Since the actual Festival was cancelled, the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival staff decided to do a virtual one! It will take place on Facebook on May 2-3 starting at 8:30 Saturday morning. Not only will a whole new line of my bags go live on Wednesday but I am offering a 15% discount on all purchases during the Festival! Just enter msdw2020 at checkout.
I'm not sure what this will be like or how it will go but stop by and take a look: https://www.facebook.com/groups/mswfOnlineCommunity/

I am sad to report that The Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival (May 2-3) has been cancelled this year due to the coronavirus. As much as I was looking forward to attending for my first time this year, canceling the show was the responsible thing to do. I hope you and your family and friends are doing okay. This is a very difficult time for so many people for so many reasons but hang in there and keep on knitting! Being creative during times like these can be very helpful, especially at reducing stress.
I had also signed up to participate in the SoWa shows in Boston every other weekend starting at the end of May. Most of those shows will probably be cancelled, too, but I'll keep you informed. Here's a link if you want to take a look: https://www.sowaboston.com/sowa-open-market
