I have been looking for some small markets to sell yarn, but was not very successful, partly because for what I found the fees were incredible expensive, partly because obviously the organisation thought of being something better and did not even bother to reply to my emails. Also I was a bit afraid that my capabilities in French conversation were not good enough. I had already given up on this season, as two nice people offered to share a stand at local christmas markets. So I am happy to announce that I will show up at two markets:
1) Marche de Noel des Artisans Bellevue: a small christmas market in the community of Bellevue, just outside Geneva, 27.11. &. 28.11., from 10 am to 5 pm in the "salle communale". Katharina Braunitzer (http://mise-en-zen.ch) will host my yarns at her stand of gorgeous knitwear. I don't know yet, how much time I have to spend there, but Katharina will be happy about any visitor.
2) Marche de Noel of the EPFL in Lausanne, thats one of the two leading technology high schools in Switzerland. It will take place on monday, december 6th from 5 pm to 8 pm in the building "CO". Though it is not very long, it is really nice and they offer (at least they did last year) free hot wine and soup. The stand will be shared with other Lausanne knitters, organized by Filambulle, and I am really excited about it, it will be a lot of fun and we will offer lots of knitted and handspun things. I am also working on something else, but till now it still a bit secret (partly because I don't know if I can do it in time, so I don't want to make empty promises).
Attention please: the epfl market will be on monday, 6th. I had posted a wrong date. Sorry for that.
