Oh you craft-lover! We know you appreciate the work that goes into
handmade goods. But perhaps you've considered trying your hand at a
craft yourself but have resisted the urge due to the cost of buying
all the supplies and not knowing what is good and what is not. Or
perhaps you know where your crafty heart lies but you love getting
deals on the supplies you need.
Come and see Sifu Design Studio and all the fine yarn this saturday. We
have yarn, needles, books, magazines, patterns, new and vintage!
Either way the Do It Your Own D*mn Self craft supply show on Saturday
4/17 from 12-4pm is for you. Come join us at a new location at 2312 N.
Milwaukee. We're just west of Foremost Liquors which is right at the
corner of California and Milwaukee. We're just around the corner from
the California Blue Line stop and across the street from Revolution
Brewing. And we're going to be packed to the gills with craft supplies
that are just waiting for someone creative and inspired to take them
Admission to the show is *free* so bring all of your friends.
Parking is on the street. Unfortunately we can't park in the lot next
to the building, but street parking should be easy to find.
There are ATMs very close by. Some vendors may be able to take checks
or credit cards but plan on bringing cash just in case. You really
don't want to have to risk letting someone walk away with the beads,
yarn, tools that you just need. Right?
Look at the bottom of this email for a complete list of the types of
things you can find at this year's show.
And if you're more interested in growing your crafty business than
growing your craft stash, we'd love to see you join us at the Craft
Racket on Wednesday, April 21 from 6-9pm. We'll be at Beans & Bagels
near the Brown Line Montrose stop at 1812 W. Montrose. This time we'll
be discussing how to effectively use Twitter and Facebook to connect
with shoppers and grow your business. If you're interested in
attending, just send an email to chicagocraftmafia@...
. We hope
to see you there.
Thanks for reading and we hope to see you at either the craft supply
show or the networking event.
