Reflections on a Vocational Happenstance
"We know we cannot plant seeds with closed fists.
To sow, we must open our hands." - Adolpho Perez Esquivel
Outdoor Market season is approaching - one of the truest signs of spring. This is one of the most exciting times of the year for crafters like me. The fun I have choosing venues is akin to a gardener's joy at reviewing seed catalogs and placing orders, planning where to plant what.
The Hobart Farmer's Market will open June 3rd and continue throughout Spring, Summer, and Fall, concluding the last Friday in September. Unless I am out of town, please know that you will find me there each week from 4-7 p.m. I will bring my work to sell and something to knit. I always have an extra chair. too, for visiting. Typically there is live music at this market, which adds to the festive mood.
I just sent in my registration form for the Jefferson Historical Society's 3rd Annual Textile Day on Saturday, June 4th, and I plan to attend the West Kortright Centre Faire on Sunday, September 4th.
Since January I've been knitting in an insulated environment, inside a sort of vacuum. I miss the enthusiasm and energy of selling my wares directly in public venues. It lovely to have each of these events laid out before me, to envision the good times ahead.
Won't you mark your calendar, too? You know I'd love to meet you there.
