The thoughts, sewing projects, and fabric oglings of a dedicated sewist.

Urban Crafters' Trunk Show!!!

The day has almost arrived.  Maybe I am overly excited for the craft show, but so be it.  I'm not even primarily excited about the potential sales (although that would be nice); I am mostly excited about the experience of doing something with a group of other crafty ladies.  While I was working hard finishing up my wallets and handbags and tags and inventory list this week, I knew that there were a bunch of other ladies in Berwyn and Oak Park and River Forest doing the same thing, and it felt good.

Here's the info:  Saturday, May 12 from 9:30am - 5pm at 411 Park Ave in River Forest.  Liita owns this space and offers afterschool, weekend and summer classes to kids from age 6 & up that allow them to experience the joy and challenge of crafting, sewing, crocheting, and knitting.  I love love love the vibe of this place.  You can check out all the participants here and Liita's classes and camps here.

Now here's where I admit to an act of absolute dumbness.  I took a bunch of photos of how everthing looked in the space and completely forgot to take pictures of the six wallets I spend about 20 hours on over the course of the last few weeks.  And I didn't take any photos at home, either.  And they are super cool: upholstery swatches and scraps transformed into wallets where even the inside of the zippered coin pockets have their own statement to make.  Dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb.

I do have a picture of my flower pin display with my info scattered around it, so that will have to do.  And there are absolutely lovely things on sale that are NOT by PoldaPop tomorrow.  Take a look:

Aprons and owls t-shirts and various and sundry by Amy from Form Work

Cool soaps from Berwyn Betty . . . I think I will have to get some lego soaps for the girls

Apple Cozies from Liita of Little Bits

Jill Wagner from Custom Cookies by Jill (another Berwynite) also has some artsy cookies for sale.  I am floored by what she does to create these, and I wish I had a picture to show (another dumb moment - I'm going to blame my distraction on the fact that I had to wrangle a no-time-for-a-nap Maisey while I was setting up & taking pictures).  I'll be there from 11am - 1pm (and maybe later) so stop by and say hi!
