So considering the lack of craft shows opportunities here in the triangle I got the great idea of organizing one! Which sounds awesome in theory but the reality of it all is I need HELP!!!!
I'm working with a partner that has started getting estimates for venues and has spread the word with friends so that we can have a nice flow of customers. Now we need vendors, we are looking for about 10-20 vendors (depending on the space) that are up-and-comer crafters who need a platform to display their crafts, network and hopefully make some much needed profit. Believe me I know how hard it is to get your business off the ground so our ultimate goal is to make this event extremely successful.
I'll love to get ideas from fellow crafters who have organized events like this, who are familiar with licenses, insurance, and technicalities that most of us are not familiar with. If you are interested in participating there will be more details to come as we get them straightened out. For more updates you can visit my blog at:http://fiercelessstudio.blogspot.com/
I'm really looking forward to making sure this event is a success so feel free to reach out to me with comments and suggestions.
