Art Fair Insiders

Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals

As I continue towards one of my goals of balancing my events of 1/2 my current events I do, I wish to include 1/2 shows of my finished Fiber Art Clothing and accessories. I have been hesitant, one reason is the timeline I see for shows I am interested in. How does one begin to plan inventory on a maybe up until shortly before the event happend? My work is not fast to create. I must be doing something wrong.

It seems to me that the transition might be easier if you were less ambitious.  I suggest you apply to a small number of shows that are spaced out in time, and that do not share dates with the shows that make you money.  Make enough inventory for one or two shows.  Once you are exhibiting, you will see how good a response you get, and how hard it will be to replenish.  Worst case you can come to your last show with inadequate inventory and take orders. Actual experience will be more useful to you in planning your next year than most of the good advice you are getting here.
