1  Pennsylvania / Pennsylvania: Southwest / Pittsburgh, PA - Handmade Arcade - December 7, 2013 - Apply Now! on: September 03, 2013 01:33:50 PM
Handmade Arcade is Pittsburghs first and largest indie craft fair. The annual Handmade Arcade was created to give grassroots, independent crafters an opportunity to show and sell their wares, and to provide an alternative to traditional craft and art fairs.

This year marks our tenth show! Come celebrate a decade of DIY with us at the spacious, eco-conscious David L. Lawrence Convention Center, Downtown (1000 Fort Duquesne Blvd., Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15222). Shoppers can expect great handcrafted merchandise from 150 vendors from Pittsburgh and all over the US, in addition to free admission, more space than ever, and an expanded area of fun hands-on activities - something for the whole family.

Applications are being accepted online until September 15: http://www.handmadearcade.com/vendors/

Sue Eggen (http://www.giantdwarf.org) is a recently ordained minister in the Church of Craft (http://www.churchofcraft.org), and regular meetings are going to be starting soon in Pittsburgh!

She recently discussed the topic in the Pittsburgh City Paper:


The first one will be on Sunday, March 6 at the Beehive on E. Carson St. in the South Side.  I think it will be at 2 pm, and I will post closer to the date to confirm this!

In the meantime, you can keep your eye on the below URL for updates!  Craft on!


10  Pennsylvania / Pennsylvania: Southwest / Pittsburgh Craft Fair, Handmade Arcade, November 13!!! on: September 04, 2004 05:36:55 PM
How serendipitous that I log on to Craftster to post this message, and see the previous post about nothing going on here!

A group of us, known as the Cool Hand Crafts collective, is ready to change that!  We are organizing an event for November which will hopefully enjoy future incarnations as well.  The Handmade Arcade is going to take place just in time for the holiday season at Construction Junction in Point Breeze (near the East End Food Co-op).

We are looking now for crafters and zinesters to sell their wares!  Although the web site is still under construction, you may find downloadable application forms at http://www.handmadearcade.com

The cost to set up a table is very reasonable, and we are hoping to make the day action-packed, with music, demos, and other things going on throughout.

Let me know if you have any other questions!
