RVA Craft Swap

Admit your craft addiction

The 3rd annual Crafters Anonymous Craft Swap is this Sunday from 2:00 – 5:00 pm at Art Works. The Craft Swap is an opportunity for artists and crafters of all types to get together in a fun, social environment and trade craft supplies. This event is also a benefit to support Art 180 – a Richmond based non-profit organization that creates and provides art-related programs to young people living in challenging circumstances, encouraging personal and community change through self-expression.

Entry into the swap is $6 at the door. If you bring a bag of supplies to swap, the entry fee is $1. Upon entry you will get 1 grocery bag to fill to your hearts content. You are welcome to purchase additional bags for $5 each. If you have your own reusable bags please feel free to bring those to use (fees will still apply). There will be tables set up to hang out and craft so feel free to bring a small project to work on.

So gather up all those unused supplies and come hang out with us this weekend!

Edna Does Not Approve

Edna does not approve.

Edna does not approve of clutter.

Of clutter!  I’ve been doing a studio clean up and de-stash again.   Its hard to let go people, let me tell ya!  The clean up happens at least twice a year.  Mainly right after the Christmas push and then after the sewing frenzy to get stock up for the Spring craftshows.  What’s left are designs unfinished, those that needed more design fixes or total craft fails. And some are just a mere idea mentally assigned to a yard of fabric.  Its getting so I have supplies and UFO’s (UnFinishedObjects) from a couple of years back.

People, I’m cluttered.  I have a slight dread sometimes going into the studio.  Not Niecy Nash and the Clean House crew type clutter (love that show!) but for the small-ish space I have, its just not good to have as much as I have!  I’m running out of cubby holes and I’m ready to streamline!  For an example on how bad it is, in addition of the fabric I have  squirreled accumulated,  I ran across a small collection of beaded fringe.

I have no idea why I have it and don’t have a design in mind for them.  Must of been one heck of deal, cause I have about 5+ yards of a assortment of dangly fringe.  The de-stash has begun, I’m listing on etsy!
