A Big Success and Thank You!

The response to our potholder sale benefitting the PNA Capital Campaign was HUGE!  We sold about 500 potholders and made a large donation to the PNA Elevator Challenge!  Perhaps next year for Winter Fest  there will be an elevator!  

2012 Winter Fest was a great event!  I enjoyed chatting with new and repeat customers.  The new and larger size of potholder on the new loom was well received, but the smaller potholder on the vintage looms is preferred by some.  Perhaps next year, we will have potholders of both sizes.   Amelia brought out left over stock from 2011 of the smaller potholders on Sunday because sales were so brisk on Saturday.   Sales were strong in all colorways with a preference for matched pairs.  

My favorite potholder pair, the "Black Watch", which looked like the Black Watch Scottish tarten featuring dark navy & hunter green argyle socks, is destined to be a Christmas gift for a man in a traditional Scottish music group.  I want to find some more argyle socks for a "Scottish Tarten" line of potholders!

Thank you so much for your support and purchases to benefit the Capital Campaign!   Happy Holidays and see you in 2012!   I am planning a "Potholder of the Week" feature with my new explorations into potholder design and weaving.....
