Washington Craft Show 2014 Cindy Grisdela

The Washington Craft Show starts today at 10 AM. I was down at the Convention Center all day yesterday setting up my booth–always an interesting experience!

You start out in an empty, cavernous hall. Then the artists begin to cart in dollies full of display equipment and art. And the happy sound of banging and clanging begins to fill the space, as each person creates a window into their world in a 10’x10′, or maybe 10’x15′, space where once there was only bare concrete.
