After the wettest Seattle winter in years, Spring is finally here! I rode my bike to the store the other day and didn’t even need a coat over my sweater! I spent an afternoon in the bright sunshine that was streaming into my bedroom as if it was coming from a movie projector.
Of course this means that the spring and summer craft show lineup is on it’s way!
The first to arrive is the Spring Studio Sale!
As you can see on this lovely flyer designed by our own Jenny Wittlinger, our annual Spring Studio Sale is expanding to two weekends this year: April 30th/May 1st and May 7th/8th. Hours are 10am to 7pm each day. The address is 4136 Meridian ave N in the Wallingford neighborhood.
May 8th is mother’s day, so come the first weekend to shop for amazing hand made gifts for mom, grandma, auntie, etc. The second weekend bring them all to the sale after your Mother’s Day brunch!
Here’s a preview of some new jewelry that will be there:
The second sale of the season is at the Folklife festival!
Northwest Folklife creates opportunities for individuals and communities of the Pacific Northwest to celebrate, share and sustain the vitality of folk, ethnic and traditional arts for present and future generations.
Folklife is a great celebration of music and art, so come see the Material and Movement booth!
The festival is May 27th-30th (Memorial day weekend) and as always will be in Seattle Center.
This year the craft section of Folklife was put in the hands of the very capable ladies at Urban Craft Uprising. I’ll be one of 20 vendors at this nationally recognized event. Michelle Rak of Sewmiishka will be there as well selling her leather goods.
I hope to see you all out enjoying Spring, Mothers, and Northwest culture in the coming months!
