Another business tip that was discussed was "Taking the Fear out of Running Large Events". Now I do an all day Christmas card making event, so my ears perked up when I heard this.
One form is "Card Buffets", and she runs them once per quarter, and has a maximum number of 6 students. They are offered Thursday,and Friday, evening from 6:30 to 9:30 and Saturday morning from 9 until 12. She charges $2.50 per card with a minimum of 4 cards per person. This fee includes all supplies, including adhesives and envelopes. Participants may make as many cards as they like in that 3 hour slot.
She describes the logistics of holding a card buffet, and this is certainly something I will be trying. Unfortunately I will have to work them around my craft shows.
Leena also briefly discussed holding a one day event.
All-in-all some very worthwhile information.
Here are some more pictures of display projects:
