YAY!! People from Savannah!  I'm not from Savvy (as I call it hehe), actually hail from the tropical island of Puerto Rico! But yes, I'm yet another SCAD student. Except I'm a fifth year film/photo Senior. I'm getting into the sewing shindig, especially handbags.

I have a question though. Where in Savannah could you get sewing lessons. I know I could take the INtro to Sewing (whatever it's called now) as an elective, but as of now, there are no spaces left.

Can anybody help??

You know, the other day I stumbled upon www.depart-ment.com, and I thought it would be neat to bring that concept into Savannah, organize a quarterly "craft-fair/store" her ein Downtown (which is where I live, and I only have a bike grr). But seeing as I've never even come close to organizing any activity in my life, an idea popped into my head.

I've been enrolled at SCAD for three years now and I have not seen an all-encompassing fair/sale featuring artwork/crafts from ALL majors combined. It's usually separated by department. (for example, the Jewelry dept has its annual Trunk Show). The college has a store, ShopSCAD, at Bull and Charlton, where students can sell their work, and although I haven't searched into this, I'm sure they do a meticulous job at selecting which artwork would look nice to tourists and prospective freshmen (you know how it goes). I must admit, the majority of the stuff is real nice, but they're all basically from graduate students or alumni. I would love to see the work from CURRENT students, the crafts they create, the photographs, the clothing, the jewelry. The college doesn't market this at all.

My idea is to organize a little event where all students who wish, can sell their stuff, whatever it may be. I have no idea how this will be carried out, as my mind is not well atuned to the laws and rules of event-coordinating. At first I thought, this could be held at one of the dorms... but, trust me, students don't buy other students artwork. Mostly cuz we broke! So it probably has to be held outside the dorms, open for the Savannah (and of course tourist) public.  I believe that's a good way to get the feel of the college and hey Savannah in general. Because, for better or for worse, Downtown Savannah is owned by Paula Wallace, president of SCAD. That's just the truth.

Anybody got any suggestions? Think this is abad idea, good, so-so??

i work in city market, so i was thinkning of going to some of the art shops and asking them about helping us out carrying our work. Shopscad doubles the price of whatever you sell them, and i would hate to sell my stuff for rediculous prices. i was going to talk to  my boss too, because she owns a coffes shop in city market and i was thinking if we has little stuff to sell, they would fit in nicely. i have some small felted objects


and so on.

some pictures of your work would be greatly appreciated to give people ideas of how to help us.

if there is a stitch n bitch happening, i will totally be there.

i'm a sequential art major but i knit obsessively and since i live alone off-campus now i need more opportunities to get out and socialize. since i don't do parties, i want to knit in groups!

That's true about ShopSCAD. I would also hate to see my stuff sell for $60+. That's not the essence of us doing DIY stuff (I guess).

Meg- what store do you work at? Have you gotten around to ask the art shops? I mostly do handbags, although not currently 'cause I haven't a sewing machine here in Savannah, but will buy one once Winter Quarter rolls in. Here is a link of some of them: http://www.starmagnolia.com/bags.html

Unsecretcrush- do you have pics of the knitting you do?
We could manage to work out a Craft-Party Smiley.  PM me and let me know where you live.

I live in Slovannah too--but I am not from here.  I noticed a knitting store on Victory Drive (called the Red Knitting Needle or something) its not far from Burger King and Johnny Harris.

At one point Starland was doing a Saturday crafts vending thing for about $20, but I do not know if its still going on.

I make jewelry (beaded and metal), cigar box purses, paper arts and some crochet.

I work at Afrika in Savannah on Broughton Street, I should have some stuff in there by December. 

Savannah has sooo many artists--yet nothing crafty is happening--clue me in if anything is going on.

Oh wow, I ride by that store everytime, goldi.

Yes, next quarter we should definitely organize something. I would love to start at least with SCAD student artwork. My ex-roommate is a Head RA at one of the dorms, and she said I could pitch this idea to the Dorm Council People (that's not their name, but I forgot at the top of my head), maybe that could help things move along to the right people and get enough participation. It'd be nice to have a "craft show" during the Spring Quarter at Orleans Hall on Oglethorpe House. Which is where the school has a lot of those non-dorm affiliated activities.

When I get back on January I will start researching this and looking around , and maybe we'd have something by Spring Quarter. We gotta give the students time to create their stuff.

Any ideas???

well i talked to the woman that owns wild fibre, and she's going to take a look at my felting after i finish it. but she's real frendly and loved the idea of student work so maybe she would help us out with something.
Also the people that own the red needle on victory have a daughter at scad, and im sure they would be intested in student work.
there are tons of oppertunties, and i think we should re group after break and think of something.
