For this author, creative endeavors have been sorely tested by motherhood. But also transformed, and in ways she wouldn’t have imagined – couldn’t have, without her life “rewritten” as it has been, by her children. So linger here, to read all things weaverly, writerly and motherly.

Challenge: Sell a Woolly Scarf in Tropical 90-degree Heat

Sandra's Fiberworks was on display at the annual Huntington Historical Society fine arts and craft show – in blistering 90-plus degree heat. I swear, every show I've done this summer has been a tropical day. I might as well have been trying to sell woolly scarves in Costa Rica. Who wants to touch fiber stuff when it's going to stick to them? Yes, there have been some lovely cool summer days, but I haven't been able to hit any of those as a vendor. I'm done with summer shows, will focus on fall and holidays.

BUT I did do well at this last show, had a couple of popular sellers. One man bought one of these shoulder wraps, along with a matching rope necklace for his lady (I don't get many male buyers):

These lightweight, pliable summer scarves also did well, as they add a touch of elegance, and do not stick to you in the tropics:

Yes! That's a hard sale for 90 degree weather! They're beautiful.

I gave up outdoor shows. At least in air conditioning people put aside the sweatiness and think of a cooler day!

Congrats on the sale! They are Beautiful!

Hey, snaps to you to even be able to sell at all in that weather. It would be hard for me to think ahead and know I'd be cold in a few months. Congrats!

Hey Sandy, Good for you, getting some sales. Here's hoping you get many more in the fall time.

Try being in the South when your favorite fiber is WOOL. Not real likely to sell much of that down here! At least you sold SOMETHING!
