Thank you to everyone who participated in the first BEST Virtual Trunk Show yesterday! Hats off to Maiko, flurrsprite.etsy.com, who championed this project and made it successful for everyone involved.
Our ten member participants each presented some examples of their work, showed pictures, talked about their passion for bookbinding, and entertained the audience for over an hour! Everyone was offering special discounts and freebies for the people in attendance and several sales resulted. It was clear that the participants and audience all seemed to really enjoy themsleves, evidenced by vigorous applause, spirited throwing of hearts and cookies, and encouraging cheers from the bleachers.
Attendees at the trunk show were invited to enter a draw for a free book from MyHandboundBooks. There were several names submitted, and a random drawing revealed the winner to be Melissa, known on Etsy as MissKnits! Congratulations Melissa! This little yellow leather book is on its way to you, along with a few other little goodies.
