December Craft Faire on the cheap!

Hey there crafters! I manage the SactoMetro Etsy Street Team, a group of about 20 etsians in the greater Sacramento area ( I was able to work with a local elementary school in North Natomas to organize a craft faire for Saturday, December 5th. Booth fees will be $25, and the school will provide tables and chairs.

They will also open up on Friday night to let us set up, provide volunteers to help if needed, and advertise it to all of the parents of the students in the takehome materials since the booth fees are a fundraiser for the PTA. The school will be providing final details (booth size, total number of booths available, PayPal payment information) to me soon, and I'll post them as I receive them.

This school is a great location as it's in a residential area with lots of homeowners, is next to 2 dog parks with lots of daily visitors, and is close to Elkhorn/Highway 5/99 as well as 80. I expect a good turnout and even I can afford $25. :)

Nice to "meet" everyone!

New Treasury!

Bye-Bye, September.

Meet up - update

I must seem like a flake.

Meet up - October 4th, but at noon. Same place. I will be there til 2, as I have a family function that day. Dang, sorry for the confusion.

Come out with a project and meet some new folks...or just come to see me sitting by my lonesome.


We got a shout out on another Blog!

Blue Daisy was featured in the most recent treasury! Check out her page!

First meet up

Hello Ladies!

I suggest that the first collective meeting take place on Sunday, October 4th @ the Peet's Coffee on 37th and J. I'll be showing up around 2pm. I'm not sure how big it is in there... if its too small, we could always move it down to the bonn laire :).
I'm not expecting a huge crowd so I doubt that will be needed.

Bring yourselves and a portable project. This will hopefully be a good opportunity to meet new crafters and make new friends!

I'll be ecstatic if more than two people show up!

Let's do this!

And here is September's first treasury! Enjoy!


I just received an email that highlighted a great event coming up in early October. Its called Witchapalooza and this festival looks so fun and amazing! They anticipate having over 300 vendors and are heavily promoting this event. The festival will be running October 10-11 at the Cal Expo Fairgrounds in Sacramento.

Is there anyone here who would be interested in sharing a booth/space/table with me? I mostly make children's clothing. Thanks!
