Wow, it has been a crazy week! When the Metal Works Club approached Hooks and Needles about doing a craft sale, I thought "Whoa, cool!" It seemed really easy.
1.) Make a bunch of stuff
2.) Sit at the table from 10AM - 4PM, M-R.
Half of the profit would go to Hooks and Needles, since we're seriously in need of funding. Right now, it's funded out of the pockets of the e-board, which is kind of stressful at the beginning of the year when we need supplies and when we want to do ANYTHING. The other half goes to the person that made the item.
To answer your question, no, I'm not the only person who made stuff! Or sat at the table! W even helped out and sat at the table when no one else was around... bless his heart!
At first, people were being kind of rude, remarking how the stuff was expensive. If they just offhandedly said something, I ignored them, but if they made a point off it, I commented how, per hour, I make about $2 from each hedgehog - just factoring labor in!
But after the first two days, hedgehogs started selling like hotcakes. I took commissions, and I'm now 11 hedgehogs deep. Six of them are dark brown.
At $20 a hog... that's a lot of cash for the club!
I'm excited to count all my money when the craft sale is over next week :3 And, partially inspired to open an etsy shop.
Until then, though... I need to eke these babies out by Monday. So, I'm going to be dreaming of sewing scales onto hogs...
P.S. - We looked at the metal scales and the naked hedgehogs and invented this:
Metal hog!! I think I could thread the scales onto the yarn before knitting.
