    Hi everyone!

    Our first meeting is February 10 at 6pm at the guild house. Please wear a mask and you need to be vaccinated.

    Please bring some show ideas that you think would be a good fit for our guild. We are talking with the PA Guild of Craftsmen to see about the Rittenhouse show. We are also considering Clover Market, The Abington Arts Fair, Winterthur, and some local shows we have done in the past (Manayunk and Chestnut Hill).

    A few things I have on the agenda:

    1. How do we jury goods for each show?

    2. How many items does each member get to bring?

    3. What fiber mode (s) do we allow at shows? Should they be different for each show?

    4. I think we figured out how to run sales so we will have a discussion around that.

    5. Who pays the booth fee? If it’s the guild, how much of a percentage of sales goes back to the guild?

    6. We need to discuss display options so the booth looks orderly and inviting. As a past retailer, I know that retail is detail. Too much often creates confusion. Too little sends a scarcity message. We need to find that balance!

    7. How do we advertise and what responsibility is that for members?

    8. Many members already have a following under their own names. How does that effect signage?

    Just a few areas we need to discuss and figure out. As I think of more, I will add them. Please feel free to do the same.

    Hope to see you all soon!
