Meet Your Maker Indie Craft Show!

Here we are at the Meet Your Maker June show, at Midtown Wine bar. It's a GREAT venue and lots of fun. Nice to get out of the studio and sell in person, meet other artists/crafters, and visitors.

Franks and Beans, I was pleased to find out, makes a great living spinning, dying and selling her beautiful yarns. I drooled over them all evening!

You can just see my display in this photo. So lit from the back! I brought my coffee "stand", little bags, and teapot with flowers to go with my teakettle art bags.

One of the best things, was finding my "Hey Banana Breath" chosen to be the ad for the show in the Eugene Weekly. Nice! Thanks so much.

I need to make a nice, big vendor's sign for my table.

Ashly of Bullfight showing off her amazing undies made of recycled tshirts. Ok, I bought one of these undies...... and I'm going to need another. They are so comfortable! Look so cute, I could mow the lawn in them (well the backyard maybe), wear great under clothes, and stay up without squeezing! Love them! You must get some! And I'm certain you need a magnetic moustache for your fridge photos to go with.

My new Tea Kettle art bag. Can be used or displayed. It comes with real lavender sachet disguised as a tea bag, and bean bag weight to hold bag upright if the bag is meant for a shelf display. I have two, and one will go onto my etsy shop tomorrow.

Back side of bag. Backing fabric and inside made of vintage American cotton. Lavender sachet "tea bag" seen here.

This looks like so much fun, Aly! I wanna live in Eugene! There isn't much handmade stuff going on around here... maybe I should do something about that...?

Also... you look beautiful in those pictures. :)

Oooo, thank you for the compliment! Move to Oregon CC! Or host your own MYM show. Really you can. It's a great concept. The two women organizing it have a website and you could write them for ideas.

And yes, to MHM, we are doing the Meet Your Maker show every month. I'll be at the next show mid July.
