Queensday in Sittard

So today my first fair from this year… And I must admit I was afraid I didn’t have enoug new things.. sold a lot last Christmas season and didn’t have time to make loads of new stuff  so far. Last Saturday and Sunday I managed to nuno felt 4 scarfs in one “rolling- go” and they came out great I think… hoping I would sell them today  but.. I still have them :)

Back to the fair again. When my daughter and me arrived there we found out we were placed besides this beautyfull “Basiliek “church. The local marching and “schutterij” stopped in front of our  table to bring a serenade to all the people whom were decoreted with a medal of Honor by the Queen the day before.  We were so to say first rang audience :)

An art Market in Sittard

Today I particpated in a Queensday art market in Sittard I have never attempted that fair so I didn´t really know what to expect, but I was quite surprised to find out it there were really nice artists there. I got a table at the end (or beginning) of the oude marktstreet.  Luckily I also had some space beside my table so children whom wanted to felt a little soap could stand there.  Here’s an impression…

the "schutterij" marching in....
