Got Craft? :: Dec2013 Vendor Line Up!

GC-Dec2013-card-frontIt’s that time of year again! The next Got Craft? Holiday Edition will mark our 14th show in Vancouver and we are super excited to announce an amazing line up of crafters! The holiday show is always a big event for us and we have tons of fun things planned including new DIY workshops, longer hours, wine and beer service, a new look book, new swag bags, and more giveaways! Check out the full line up >> here <<

GC-Dec2013-card-backWe want to thank everybody that took the time to submit an application for this years’ show and are grateful for the amazing support that we received. Each year, the number of applications outweigh the available spaces and it is always a difficult process to narrow down our vendor list. To continue our goal to make it the best event that we can, we are happy to announce that 25% of the vendors at the next show are new!

Thank you to MailChimp, UPPERCASE, Poppytalk, Scout Magazine, Matchbox Creative, Square, Locomotive Clothing, and Spool of Thread for the continued support.

GotCraft2013SpringEVESneak_0003Thank you to everyone that attended Got Craft? last weekend! Despite the last minute changes, we had another amazing event and owe it all to our amazing vendors for their flexibility and to our volunteers that went above and beyond to make sure that the transition to the new venue went as smoothly as possible. We also want to thank all of our followers for their words of support, retweets, likes, and emails over the past week. We truly was amazed by the number of messages that we received and how everybody was ready to lend a hand in spreading the word. The Got Craft? holiday show is scheduled for Saturday, December 14 and Sunday, December 15th. Vendor applications are available online here.

We’ll be taking a short trip to Toronto, ON tomorrow morning to work on another event. I’ll still be tweeting and instagramming (did I just make that into a verb?), but plan on taking a wee break from the blog to refresh and catch up on everything else. See you back here soon!

A big shout out to our ah-mazing sponsors: MailChimp, UPPERCASE magazine, Square, Spool of Thread, Scout Magazine, Poppytalk, and Locomotive Clothing.

got craft? :: gift guide #1

Hey everyone! This is Leonie from IDSwest and I am super excited to share with you my top picks for the upcoming Got Craft? holiday show! Before I get started, I have to say though that is was super hard to even pick my top picks – Got Craft? is bringing yet again such an amazing artisan line up together!

1) My first one is Toodlebunny! I just LOVE her jewellery and she is always one of my favorite exhibitors wherever I go! Love her, love her work!

2) Maria’s felted bowls are so beautiful and she is defiantly one of the raising stars in the artisan scene. Don’t miss her!

3) mmhhh Have you tried Bake Sale Baking Co.‘s amazing baked goods? So yummy!! I won’t be able to resist.

4) I always find it SO hard to buy things for guys, but these wicked cufflinks are such a perfect present! Don’t miss Jennifer at Got Craft!

5) I discovered My Little Lights this spring and fell in love with these adorable light strings right away. I already have one at home, but might just pick up another one at Got Craft?!

6) Also, swing by Locomotive Clothing‘s booth – their screen printed T-shirts are awesome!
