2012 Events: The Crafty Underdog

Hello first of March!

The slow down of winter is officially over and we are gearing up for a fun lineup of craft shows and art markets.


Numero uno this year will be The Crafty Underdog in Portland.  I love Portland so much I just can't stay away -- seems I am driving down every couple of weeks.  AND I love the idea of this show (music! drinks! artsy stuff!) and hope we fit into the mix so we can visit again.



I'll share the tentative lineup for the rest of year.  Some we may not be accepted to or we may find others to visit.  Although I get a little anxious being new to these events, in the end it is exciting to discover new (to us) venues and connect with new communities.

MARCH :: 11th -- The Crafty Underdog
APRIL :: 27th -- Make Olympia
MAY :: 12th -- Crafty Wonderland
JUNE :: Make Olympia
JULY :: 14th + 15th -- Bend Summer Fest (working vacay)
AUGUST :: 4th -- Proctor Arts Fest + Make Olympia
SEPTEMBER :: 1st + 2nd + 3rd -- B U M B E R S H O O T
OCTOBER :: recovery
NOVEMBER :: recovery
DECEMBER :: Urban Craft Uprising + Crafty Wonderland and maybe a little Renegade SF?

I had hoped to travel back east in September to participate in Indie Craft Parade but Josh is deploying to Afghanistan in May so travel will be limited due to school days and dog duties :(
