This sounds great, I'm in houston until May, if you were planning it for before then, I'd love to be a part of it.

Okay, so... I've been looking around & this is what I've come up with so far: 

It seems like somewhere between $30-70 is a good fee for a first time event (assuming enough vendors sign up)... should be just enough to cover all of the expenses of organizing it (location, advertising, etc)...

It's looking like it'll need to be several months away (too bad the summer is SO hot!)... I wish we could get everything worked out in time for May, but that doesn't seem possible... so late summer?

Location ideas?  Community center?  Park?  I live way out in Cypress now, but I don't think I would want to have it all the way out there (maybe in the 1960 area though... since it's busy...?).... any ideas for within the city?  There are TONS of parks/centers that I've found online, but I've never been to most of them & am wondering if there are a few that are generally more "popular" with the crowd we'd want to attract. 

Tables & chairs will have to be provided by the vendor.  I'll post a list of places to rent them on the website once more things are set...

the website!  There isn't one yet.... brainstorming names before I get one up... I'll post any updates here & would appreciate any help/suggestions anyone can provide.

There are a lot of theaters here that would donate space, also Super Happy Fun Land is a great spot for crafts or a swap, they already have silk screen workshops on Sundays.

Super Happy Funland is a good idea. They host a lot of stuff like this. A few months back they did a zine/comic fest.

Olivia and all the guys over there are into a big sewing circle/swap craft day, I only brought up the idea to them, but never wanted to promise anything until I felt we could supply the numbers of people willing to participate.
This site is excellent for the herding of craftsters! I didn't think there were that many crafty people in H-town til now!
Lets make it happen!!!!!

The idea for Super Happy Funland is good.

Maybe we should check w/ the ladies of the Houston Craft Mafia and see if any of them are down.
