My Serendipity moment
Have to tell about a little serendipity that happened to me last week. A weaver friend (Mike) sent me a link to a weaving sales thru Yahoo for someone who had a rigid heddle loom that was just perfect for what I was looking for. So I copied the info then went on line for with the name of the manufacture. It is a Kromski Harp 32" Rigid Heddle/
While checking out Kromski I found their prices less than the ad, but also I found someone local who carries this brand. So I copied this info. All this was on Friday last week. On Sunday I had my Fiber Guild meeting and I took all my info with me to pick some brains and ask for a workshop on the rigid heddle weaving. Well you won't believe it but a couple ladies in my group are the owners of the distributor that I had found on line! Soooooooooo to make a long story a little shorter, they were able to give me a good price on a new one and they are working on dates to do an all day workshop and if that's not feasible they will just do some one on one with me if I want to buy it.
So now with my sales from the show Saturday I have enough money set aside to buy the loom. I am excited to try something new. I forgot to mention I sold 7 rugs! Plus some other stuff, but the rugs were the big ticket items. 3 of them were the wool selvage rugs, so I am out of them.
I have registered for one more craft show at a local elementary school that is reported to do really well, in the middle of Nov. Folks buying stuff for Christmas.
Will be off line for a week unless I go to the Library, hubby having a second knee done next Tue and so I will have the store closed for over a week. Will have lots of catching up to do.
