Hey all!

Exciting news!  Craftster will have it's own booth at this year's Renegade Chicago!  We'll have crafts you can make and take home with you and Craftster totes and buttons for sale!

Our booth is number #129 and is at the corner of Marion and Division (across from the bar Cheesy). 

I'll be manning the booth along with batgirl and some of the lovely ladies of our Chicago craft group will be there as well!  Come by and say hello!  Grin

While you're there you should also check out Enamor's booth! That's our own Modus Operandi

Is anyone else participating/planning on coming?

I don't know that we've thought that far ahead!  and... I don't know? You could try when the application comes available?  We aren't doing consignment from Craftsters.

Hey all!

If you're coming out today, good for you! However, our tent broke.  Cry  Someone apparently threw a chair on it..... So we would've weathered the storm again, but we couldn't do it without a functioning tent. We've come home. I'm sorry to anyone who misses us!

We need to institute a craftster911 system! I am sure we could have knitted, soldered, sewed, wired (ect) the tent, and made quite a statement doin' it!

Someone threw a chair at the tent  Huh  I looked for the Craftster booth today, alas...

You weren't the only booth that was absent today. There were several empty spots at the fair.  It was a great show although a bit soggy!

There's no real story except we came back to a chair in the middle of the roof of the tent....and the side was broken.  I have pictures, etc, which I will share probably on Wednesday! (I'm taking some vacation time after this. Tongue)

It was craziness!  Rainegade 2008. 
 
For a bit on my train ride the tracks were under probably 8-12 inches of water.

Record rainfall, flooding, closed highways due to 5 ft of standing water, pretty much says this was probably the worst weekend for a craft show  Shocked

I did have the honor of meeting ms jungrrl in the midst of all the chaos!


Here's a recap of what I experienced:
