Holiday Trunk Shows

Each December, I participate in holiday trunk shows for local artisans, selling a collection of my hand-knits to raise money for my charity. My collections have included:

With each collection, I try identify trend-setting items that you wouldn’t find at your local mall. I like to focus on accessories, especially those that are one-size-fits-all to simplify the variety of sizes I need to make. For materials, I use quality wools (cashmere blends, soft merinos, etc) in popular colors. Shoppers at these trunk shows want soft things, and will stay away from itchy wools and acrylics.

Craft Fairs & Boutiques

In addition to holiday shows, I have had the opportunity to participate in other craft fairs and “pop-up” boutiques.

Etsy

At this time, I don’t sell on Etsy. I typically sell what I can make each December at my shows, so I don’t bother with online sales.
