And this is why we choose to live in probably the most amazing place for artists...Today's awesome event: THE BIG CRAFTY! Ellen and I grabbed our friend Laura, and headed down to Pack Place this afternoon!
This was my very first Big Crafty event... and I was awe-struck! There were
so many amazing artists there, and everyone was in the holiday mood, that although it was way packed (which of course was a good thing), everyone was super nice. We even ran into a few faces that we recognized, which being fairly new to the whole Asheville world of craft, was pretty spectacular.
A couple of ya'll asked if we actually had a booth at the show this year, and although we didn't, we are already stoked about the next one. I think I can speak for both Ellen and I, when I say we are really excited to be apart of this community, and look forward to knowing everyone.
But I have to do some mad shout-outs to some new artists that I met/saw today!
Buncombe Belt Buckles! Visit their etsy account here! They were rockin' a sewing machine money clip, which or course was a big hit with us sewin' folk. I was craving a belt buckle, to complete the look of total crafty
nerdiness, but opted out for the moment... Although I might have to start collecting buckles now, if they are all going to rock like this Beaver one... :) They also have some vegan belts!
Sweet Mess -- Visit them at etsy.com.... here! They had really amazing Christmas Ornaments... that we don't have to pack away after the Holidays! A picture of our new ornament on our sweet little tree soon!
And last but not least...
Miss Fitt & Co. - Which make felted hats and other warm accessories. Didn't get a a chance to purchase myself a hat... but would really dig one for Christmas... hint hint! www.missfitt.com
I wish I could throw mad props to everyone there! I'm sure Ellen will post some of her favorites too! But for now, I've got some sewing to get to!
P.S. - Carrie, this updated post is for you!
