My customers are from all over the world! My local gallery, Port City Pottery & Fine Crafts, is in a wonderful location in beautiful downtown Wilmington NC, in an historic building (The Cotton Exchange), near the river, the Convention Center, the Hilton, and lots of other desirable interest areas for touring and shopping. So seasons are not necessarily a factor for my work. WHEW!!! Happy for that, because I like to work with all manner of fibers no matter the season.
And then there is Facebook and Ravelry and flickr (where I inventory ALL my work!) that have drawn in people from around the world. I am happy to say that social media has been very good for my business. This is a business of LOVE first and foremost - a love of knitting, crocheting, and felting! But it IS a business too!
