1. Got Craft? and The Vancouver Craft Mafia are hosting Swap-O-Rama-Rama this April 19th, 11.00am - 4.00pm (only 2 weeks away!) at the Heritage Hall on Main St. All you need is a bag of clothes/craft supplies and six bucks to get in - perfect for spring cleaning! You'll then be able to browse all the clothes other swappers have brought and take home what you like! There will also be some of Vancouver's favourite crafters helping you to upcycle what you find with screenprinting, sewing, button making and more. Check out the blog for more info here!
There I am! I'll be sharing a with the lovely Andrea from Roxypop so if you're in the area please come by and say hello. If you've never been to Got Craft? before, you're in for a treat! There are so many fantastic crafters who'll be there, and the first 30 people through the door receive a swagbag full of treats from us all.
3. Vancouver will be premiering Handmade Nation in July! I can't wait, and you should be excited too! If you haven't yet heard of the movie (and book), Faythe Levine has travelled round the country and documented the D.I.Y. movement in North America, interviewing and hanging out with incredible crafters such as The Small Object, Knitta and Nikki McClure (a personal favourite). Head over here for more info and tickets.
Yay! Hope to see you guys there!
