I followed your advice about "framing" in my booth after reading the post Sticker Shock or A Real Bargain - It's All Relative To Framing. I extended my affordable line of yarn bowls and made a more expensive one.
I showed it at a show last weekend!"
"And the show was a great success!"
"My best show ever! I sold 82 yarn bowls including my framing piece."
"Thanks for the info on framing pieces!
Next year I'll make 2 or 3."
Good going on developing your niche market. Fantastic! Now why only 2 or 3 framing pieces? Why wait till next year?
Your framing peices can perform multiple functions. This more special work will get you into better juried shows, and can help sell your work online as well. This higher end work can also develop into a more expensive and popular line generating more profit. And finally, the framing work will help create a more evolved artistic voice for your work and reputation as a maker.
Perhaps a framing piece for every show is in your future?Harriete Estel Berman
