Anyone else going to the festival formerly known as the Creative Sewing and Needlework Festival? I've been to just about every one since I was about five Tongue My mum usually teaches a class or three, too, and I occasionally manage to snatch free admission :3

It's not specifically an "alternative" craft fair, but it caters to all crowds, and there are usually some good deals on fabric and beads if you look around. The fall one's huge, and I always have a great time, and buy a ton of crafting stuff t'play with Cheesy

I usually go to the fall one, mainly to pick up beading patterns and supplies, and try to get a decent price on some yarns, nice hooks/needles, and patterns.  I usually don't take the classes.  The Spring one is too far in the West End for me, and is so much smaller - only went once, and likely will not go again unless they feature something really eye catching for me.

Yep, I'm going to the fall one for sure as I have done for many years now, I don't really go to buy anything or to take any of the classes necessarily, I just enjoy going so I can be around all the craftiness!

That sounded kind of lame.

If you are going just to look at the booths, it is only $5 after 5 pm on some days.
