Welcome to ArtFairInsiders.com, Pat. I'm pleased to see you here and look forward to having you as part of our community.
When you have a chance, please add a photo of yourself and stop by the "Discussions" area to introduce yourself to the rest of us. We all look forward to your participation here. Also, visit the "member map" and add your location. We have a lot to offer one another, experienced and newbie alike. Let's make this a dynamic site!
Many topics have already been discussed here before you joined us. You might like to try a search of your topic before you post your question. Just put your topic, canopy tents, jurying fees, Ann Arbor Art Fair, etc, into the search bar at the top of the right side of the page. You might be surprised that someone has already asked your question.
We also ask that all new members take a few moments of their time to read the code of conduct. You will find it at http://www.artfairinsiders.com/page/code-of-conduct. There are a few guidelines that all members will need to follow because , as in any social community, we all need to work together.
Best wishes, Connie Mettler
p.s. The best way to make this system easy to use is to click on the "Follow-Email me" link at the bottom of each Forum discussion that interests you. That way the system will email you automatically whenever anyone responds. It's a great time-saver.
Hi, Pat. I'm new, too, so it is nice to connect! Your profile comments are interestng and helpful. I know you are reluctant to mention names in your "worst show ever" question, but it would be helpful to everyone if we knew which show to avoid!
Hi, Pat. Sorry I didn't reply right away. I have this pesky job that gets in the way of doing what I really love! Due to work commitments, I only did one show this month. Most of my activity was in the fall months, but I hope that next year is a different story. I am just starting to apply for large out-of-town shows. Other than small local shows, I have done the Strawberry Festival in Melbourne, FL, and Mount Dora in Mount Dora, FL. I just posted a review of Mt Dora, so it should be published soon. I am planning to do that one next year.
