In addition to an all-time record in sales, we also had perfect weather. This event is a major fundraiser for our club enabling us to pay our monthly room rental fees and continue providing quality demonstrations using good equipment, etc. Our president, Bob Wolfe, will provide a verbal financial summary at our next club meeting (Oktoberfest).
The 90% of you who did not participate in this year's Pink Palace Crafts Fair need to say THANK YOU to the 10% of our membership that made this happen. (Just as an FYI - that 10% of our members set up the booth on Wednesday and Thursday, staffed the booth/provided demonstrations during the three-day event Friday (10-6). Saturday (10-6), and Sunday (10-5) and then handled take-down Sunday evening)
Rumor has it that MSWG's board will be discussing a revised sales plan to hopefully increase club and individual profits with more product made by a greater number of members available to sell, including the possibility of a new option to sell product but not work the booth during the event.
All members are encouraged to start making items NOW to be sold at next year's event.
