Thursday is the sale, but preparing items to bring to the sale can be quite an involved task.
Since each little sachet is unique and has a “story”, I realized I needed to create a hang tag to explain about the recycled cashmere and woven words and a little about me. This decision came to me too late to hire a graphic designer, and I don’t have (or if I do I don’t know how to use) a graphics program on my computer—–so I resorted to cut and paste.
I also knew that I could go to Kinkos and have them print it out on card stock, but for some reason I felt compelled to print it at home.
Because I have used somewhat thinner paper than card stock, the results are not as spiffy as they could be—rather homey. I have to say it took some effort to get the back and front to match. Here they are folded and ready for the next step.
The Seattle Weavers Guild Sale is not set up in booths but rather departments. (rugs, clothing, scarves etc) Because of this, each person must fill out an inventory tag and 2 copies of an inventory sheet.
Ninty hang tags ready to go. The next step is to attach each tag to the sachet, so off I go to do that.
