gettin' crafty in the deuce

i know i've mentioned it before, but Blue House Ann Arbor has ALL sorts of fun things going on, and i have to mention it again. you can find all the details of all things Blue House on the BH website, but here are a few stand-outs worth pointing out:

workshops: there are a ton of classes and workshops being offered. i finally took a knitting class a few weeks ago, which was super fun. (thanks, nicole!) and i'll be teaching some sewing classes there as well. (one is this saturday!)

crafterlot: june 12, aug 14, sept 12, from 5-8pm, there will be a mini craft fair in BH's parking lot. owner siobhan says "We’ll take the first 30 handmade vendors for the June 12 event. You’ll set up with your own table ($10 table fee) in the parking lot of Blue House. A fun crafty bazaar teeming with all that makes great community." cool! and there will be live music at the crafterlot events. it's a laid back way to set up shop.

mitten made: july 23-24. a two day craft fair happening the weekend of ann arbor's big art fair. it's an outdoor event, and applications will go up soon!

handmade nation: as part of the maker's mark series, on tuesday, may 25 there will be a screening of the indie craft documentary handmade nation. i haven't seen it yet, so i'm excited! rsvp via the BH website.

and on and on and on.

see you around the house,
