I’ve done 4 shows in the last two weeks. It’s been tiring but fun. I met some really fun and really talented crafters, especially at Cambridge Open Studios. (COS is, by the way, also showing this weekend. Yes, you should go if you can. It’s amazing.)
What was striking was not only how great the community of crafters were to each other, but also how great most of the people visiting the show were to us. However, like any barrel of apples, there were a few rotten ones.
Everything listed below was actually said to me or one of the people I met over the last two weekends. When you’re at a craft show, don’t be this person.
