Thanks to all who supported recent demos

I want to thank all of you who have supported demonstrations in the last month.  This is a busy time of year for demonstrations that really help to get the word out to everyone that we believe lace is important.  It is always hard to determine who we inspire during a demonstration.  A few will show their interest in lace, but it may be some time before we know about that spark.  While our members do demonstrate at small venues which are important, I was particularly pleased that we were able to support two major events that overlapped.  Bryce Wolf and I were out at the Big E last Thursday to demonstrate.  It wasn't the best of days since it was cool and gray, but we did see more people that we expected.  I was also at Plimouth Plantation for the demonstration at the opening of their new crafts center on Saturday.  What a beautiful day for the group of us that came.  I'm sure that those who were there on Sunday also had a good time.

We are always looking to improve the demonstrating process.  Having been to two demos in the last week, I am thinking about it as well as gathering ideas from others.  You can expect that we will talk about ideas in November.

    I had a great time demo'ing with Sharon at the Big E. We must be getting the word out -- several folks who stopped by actually knew what we were doing -- and it wasn't "tatting"!! We had a "try-it" pillow, which was really helpful in explaining the basics, although only a few would "try." (We were there during school hours, so no kids.) Several weavers caught on quickly. Lots of fun chatting.
