Hey guys!

It's great to see others from the area!  I was purusing this thread, and noticed some cool shows from 2004 (Made in VA, Ladyfest).   Does anyone have a heads up on what's jumping off this year?  I know the 1st Bizarre Market (Chop Suey Books) is in March, but unsure of the date; and the 17th Street Farmer's Market starts in April. 

Where else are the indie crafters at??!!??

I am a 17th st farmer's market vendor/crafter. I'm glad you brought that up. I am on the advisory counsil and am thinking of pitching a craft expo/knit-in on a Saturday mucho market day. With knitters, yarn vendors, sheep farmers, demos, spinners, etc.... Any ideas/thoughts?Think big!

Also, I'm friends with the girls from 17.5 across from the market. They just reopened and they want to start a stitch and bitch. You interested? I'm thinking a happy hour time snb. I have a young son and can't go to the snb at Panera on Teusdays, but I really want to get in a group! I have one person who responded to my post on the yahoo snb group so far.I'm gonna go see them this weekend. If you're up for it let me know, I'll post here again if there is a date/time set.

By the way, what do you make? Do you vend?

last i heard, the next bizarre market is on april 30th.  read it in style, but i could be wrong.

i am also definitely interested in finding out about more shows/festivals going on.  i don't think made in va is happening this year, as it was a part of the grand opening of the vcu commons thing.  i'm trying to find out for sure what's happening with that, and if it's not happening, i've got some possibilities/ideas for starting another festival through vcu/on vcu campus.  i'll let you all know if it works out. Smiley

and larkstudio, i think i talked to you at the farmer's market during the grand illumination thing near christmas.  do you make clutches?

Yep, that's me!  I'm STILL freezing from that night! Cheesy

I'll try to keep this thread going with places/dates that I find out.  I would love to help set up an Art vs. Craft (http://www.flyingfishgallery.com/) type event in Richmond, but I'm not sure if one is happening already.  I remember something like that at Plant Zero last year, but don't remember details.  Keep me posted on your ideas for VCU - I'm alum!

I'd really love a SNB on this side of town.  I have a toddler too and it's just hard to go all the way out to the west end.  If everyone has kids maybe we could do a combination SNB and playgroup, although I don't know how much we'd actually get done.

The first official SNB downtown is a  happy hour SNB, (no booze, just caffine) Friday Feb 18th, at the 17.5 Ethos Cafe on 17th St downtown on the farmer's market  at 4:00 till when ever you need to go. Tell your friends, bring your projects , or come and learn.

The 17th st farmers market... that's the one in shockhoe, right? that got completely flooded last September?

I've never been, but I didn't know they had craftspeople there. I figured it was all, well, farmers. :-P

I'm trying to get ready for Bizarre Market. Every time I wanna go but I can never get ready in time.

Well it sounds like you need to get out more! You are missing out! The market has all sorts of wares! Come on down and check it out. The market season starts this May, keep an eye out.

Until then there are buisnesses down there, like the coffee shop that will be the home of the Friday Stitch and Bitch, 17.5 Ethos Cafe, on 17th Street, 4:00 till.... starting this Friday Feb 18th.

There is a Fall Festival in Newport News every October. I did it last year. But the application is due in spring. Here is the site:
