I started a new community on livejournal for Houston crafters.

It is called Craft Houston. (http://community.livejournal.com/crafthouston)

The community is for the Houston craft community to share ideas, promote events, and get to know one another.

Come join & introduce yourself!
3  Texas / Texas: Coastal / HOUSTON CRAFT FAIR PLANNING on: May 11, 2006 12:08:50 PM
Hello. I started this new thread as a space to throw out ideas for the craft fair we all seem so interested to have in Houston.

Please post any ideas or experiences you have regarding alternative craft fairs.

At any point during the planning, if something is decided (meaning: definite) I will post it on my domain in order to keep a running list of the plans (and so they won't get too lost in here). The page is - http://www.prettyinprint.net/craftfair.html

I'd like the first event (here's to hoping there will be more to follow) to be later this year (to allow plenty of time to plan/promote)... in the fall sometime of maybe specifically November if it is marketed as a good place to shop for holiday gifts. At first, that sounds like a while away, but when you think about how many things have to be done between now & then (and the fact that I'm sure we're all busy with school/work/families), I think it will be here in no time.

I have a few requests to get us going...

First - Anyone have any name ideas?

Second - Location ideas?

Third - Should we do all of this here on craftster? Do you think it will get lost in the mix? If we need a separate space, I can set up a discussion board on my domain so that we can have several different threads covering all the different aspects of organizing the fair. Think we need one?

Also - There is a craft fair to go along with the Southern Girls Convention being held in Houston in June. I've reserved a space for myself there, and will hopefully come away with a better idea of what we should/shouldn't do. Please let me (us) in on any craft fair secrets you may have!

4  Texas / Texas: Coastal / Hip Craft Fair for Houston?! on: October 31, 2004 03:02:39 PM
I'm interested in organizing a craft fair, along the same lines as renegade, in Houston in Spring 2005 (before it gets too hot!).  I definitely can't do it alone & don't want to if there's little to no interest for one. 

Would anyone be interested in having a table at an event that would be held at a park?  I've been looking for places... it'll be on the north-ish side of town, but I promise not to make it all the way out in Cypress, even though that would mean less driving for me. : )

I'd like to figure out how to get a general idea of the interest in something like this so that I could start to determine location, fees, volunteers to help me organize, etc.

Any suggestions, volunteered ideas/time or anyting else would be greatly appreciated!

Oh, and, hi. I'm Sarah & I read every last word on this site but have yet to post. I'm a little more vocal over at the glitter boards (but not much lately). I like to make things, I like people who make things and I'm tired of driving to Austin to be able to attend any sort of cool crafy event.  : )
