About a week ago a woman from the Park Slope Courier (and 4 other papers) called me, and I had a phone interview for the paper. The article is in the 24/7 section of the paper this week. The article talks about Renegade and talks to three of us artists in the fair! I have never been in a newspaper before! Here is a picture of the article!
I googled sewing circle and this was the first picture that came up. Although we don't really look like that, the intention is the same. I am very lucky to have so many girlfriends who know how to sew come over and help me make things. Thanks guys!
The Renegade craft fair is looming closer and I'm getting more nervous about having enough stuff. Today I spray painted some frames for the bigger cross stitches and sewed more socks for monkeys. Every day all day working! I'm getting tired but its still so much fun so that's a good sign. Here are some more pics of piles of things.
I still have to go out and put fliers up at a bunch of places. I'll do that this weekend.
Getting ready for the Renegade Craft Fair is exhausting! My house is a mess and it looks like a exploded mess of monkey limbs and vinyl everywhere. But hey things are turning out to be pretty cute looking and luckily I just quit my job! So I will have more time before Renegade to make stuff to sell. Also for anyone out there who sells at fairs, I was searching for a fold up travel table and I was looking all around and they are HELLA expensive! Anyways I foud one for $36 with free shipping from Walmart (I know, I know but it was the only one I could afford!)! Here is the link! FOLD UP TABLE.
Today on Broadway between Houston and Prince there is a Method laundry truck accepting donations for goodwill. In return they give you a bottle of detergent that is made with plant based technology. 4 pumps=1 load. Pretty cool. Go get some free stuff!!!
So our vendor packets came for Brooklyn Renegade Craft Fair today and we are table #225. It will me Brooklyn Craft and JDavis Studios again this year! See the map for where we will be. Please come by and say hi!
I have been an artist my whole life. I have always loved sewing, collage, typography, embroidery and making things pretty. It led me going to college at Pratt Institute and and from there I worked every job imaginable till i found pre-press/graphic design where i am working currently. I hope to one day open up Brooklyn Craft the craft supply store in Brooklyn. A store that's like a craft fair every day. I love sailing and biking and this blog is all about what takes up most of my time, unless of course I am drinking at the bar.
