"I have a theory for why people don’t read signs, even when we put them all over. Ditto prices. I think that when they get into a visual mode, their reading is affected. Like a left brain versus right brain phenomenon. Images versus language. I…"
I have a Sears Craftsman benchtop belt sander I have been very happy with over the years. I had a stockpile of belts but have found the glue dries up (or something) over time and they break very easily. But now there’s no Sears near me, and I believe they sold the Craftsman line anyway. My sander takes 1” x 42” belts. I have no idea if belts are standardized or are proprietary by brand (I hope not). What brand of belts might be comparable? And sold where?

"I use Hotwire all the time and this only happened to me once. It was for a show in a small town without many hotel rooms and it was the day the acceptances went out. I attributed it to everyone who got accepted immediately getting on…"
"We only did Black Swamp once, 2 or 3 years ago. We make silver jewelry. We did OK. The set up is hard because you have to do it at 6:00 a.m. in the dark. It's very friendly and everyone is helpful. It is a college…"
Hi, Linnea! Connie suggested I leave a comment for you... Coming from the Chicagoland area, what do you know of the Deerfield Festival of Arts in Deerfield, and the Naperville Women's Guild's Art Show? Both of these are on the weekend of June 4-5... Have you done either of these or heard good/bad info on them? Coming from Central Illinois, I know both areas are good areas, but I'm having a hard time finding any reviews on either show. Any thoughts or comments would be most appreciated! Many thanks in advance, then, for your time and efforts!
Thank you for your response. I have realized from perusing this site that there are just so many issues that I have never considered. I appreciate the advice from all of you who have been in the business.
Hi Linnea! I was looking for information about Artfest Midwest, and saw your post about booth recommendations. Since you did the show last year, do you have any booth location recommendations?
Hi Linnea...I'm exhausted tonight. I will call the hotel and see if they will accept your name instead of mine. It's a Country Inn and Suites which are nice. I'll get it done by 10:30 central time. Call me! 770 843 4604
