I understand Vogue puts on some great shows, but they’re really expensive and usually pretty far away from me. So just like the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival, this was a silver lining virtual event for me!
By the time I was able to sign up, most of the classes were sold out, but I was able to get in on two lectures: Inclusive Design for Knitters by Kim McBrien Evans and Amp up Your Instagram by Meika John. These were more hands off than a class, of course, but also cheaper, which I appreciated. I “left” each class feeling really glad that I signed up!
What impressed me the most about this virtual event was the Event Hub interface. It was insanely easy to use, and after the minor frustrations I had with the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival, I was so grateful for it. Once you signed in, your classes, the community events, and the vendor market were all at your finger tips.
I also appreciated the live vendor features that happened every day of the show. It broke the vendors down into manageable pieces, so I was able to view them all without the fatigue. Even if I wasn’t able to watch the live streams the vendors put on, the same menu had a small paragraph about the vendor and a link to the online shop. It had a similar feel to perusing booths in person.
However, I was still missing the comradery of seeing and chatting up fellow crafters. I would have loved a forum space or video chat option to somewhat fill that void. Other than that, this virtual show was a joy to attend.
