Qualcomm Arts & Crafts Festival – Part III


It’s that time of year again for fall craft shows, and my biggie of the year is right around the corner. Qualcomm’s annual Arts and Crafts Festival is coming up on Thursday, Nov. 13th, from 11 am until 1:30 pm.  And, BONUS! I have another excuse to go visit Krista’s family in San Diego!

This year I’ll be selling many of my usual knit and crochet hats and scarves, but I’ll be adding lots of new gifties and stocking stuffers for the upcoming holidays. Being a wine lover myself, I’m also including many “accessories” for the well dressed wine bottle and glass!

I have added a few new designs to my scarf collection, some knit, some crochet, even a few all-cotton styles. I haven’t photographed all of them, but here are a few new designs I’ve tried out.

With smaller amounts of yarn, I’ve even managed to include a few headbands and hats – not photographed yet as I’m still working on them.

My yarn flowers are always popular, and will be back, but this year I’ve included some wool fabric flower brooches – great for adding to a sweater, a scarf, jacket or coat.

A totally new item this year will be an Anthropologie inspired crochet collar. I’ve made a few color and yarn variations to fit any style.

For the wine lovers among us, there are wine bags, wine glass slippers, wine bottle tags/ornaments, and even some cork angels and pine cone elves for the bottle or tree.

Cell phone pouches are back, and some with a strap for wearing as a crossover.

Lots of little gifties and stocking stuffers are included this year, adding to the usual monster pockets, mini gift bags and gift card holders.

For the younger and young at heart set, I’m including my ribbon and pearl necklaces., inspired by a Land’s End offering last year.  They come in a tremendous variety of colors, sure to please your princess.

My dependable yo-yo vintage hair clips will return, and new styles have been added to the $1.00 bobby pin collection.

There’s LOTS and LOTS more, but I’ve tried to include the newest items I’m adding.  I think there truly is, this year more than ever, something for everyone, including gifts for every pocketbook, from $1.00 to $25.00.
