It was their first appearance as a group. The Home-Based Entrepreneurship of Southwest Nebraska filled booths at last weekend’s Wauneta Harvest Fest.
They were marketing items from quilting to food to home decorating. Organized in April, there are 10-12 members.
One of the organizers, Jayne Bauerle, said the group decided to form “Because the craft fair wasn’t any longer” held in Imperial, “so it was our idea for women to get together and start it up again.”
The group researches craft fairs, notifies members, and meets to decide if and where to display their wares.
The group includes: Jayne Bauerle, Mary Kay cosmetics; Alisa Bauerle, baked goods; Cindy Hudson, Cindy’s Designs; Marla Hamilton, Celebrating Home-Shaklee; Dorene Weist, Creative Memories; Aneta Engel, Avon; Leanne Maucher, Tupperware; Tina Hayes, jewelry; Becky Spady, Prairie Winds Custom Sewing and Machine Embroidery, assisted by Nola Straub, and McGowan Knife Sharpeners and TUFTOP Kitchen Boards, and Kristi Eskew, Scentsy.
Anyone in interested in joining the group may contact one of the above members.
