September is a lovely month, isn’t it? So many changes and new things going on, it’s no surprise that this September is loaded with awessome craft shows too.

Although I won’t be a part of this show, as I will be in Seattle for another Flatstock poster show during the Bumbershoot Music Festival, I think that you fine folks who will be in Pittsburgh should check out the awesometacular Crafts’n’At Craft Fair at the Union Project over Labor Day weekend, put on by the Pittsburgh Craft Collective (PCC).

The Who, What, Where, When, & Whys:

WHO: Crafts N’At is brought to you by the Pittsburgh Craft Collective. We are a group of 51+ members working to create a strong and vibrant craft community through social and resource networking, education and workshops, and information sharing.

WHAT: Crafts N’At is an opportunity for independent crafters to show and sell their wares, establish their business, and to celebrate creativity. It features over 50 vendors, make & take crafts for children and adults, craft demonstrations, live performances, a Chinese auction and raffle, and an outdoor BBQ.

If you are interested in becoming a vendor, click here for more information. If vending isn’t your thing, but you still want to help out please send us an email at pghcraftcollective@gmail.com. If you are looking for promotional items for the show {including banners, buttons, and flyers}, click here.

WHERE: The Union Project at 801 North Negley Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15206

WHEN: Saturday, September 5, 2009 {Labor Day Weekend} Open to the Public: 10am to 6pm

WHY: The PCC will work each year to raise money for a charity in conjunction with this event. This year’s show will benefit [ gravity + grace ] and the Parkinson Foundation of Western Pennsylvania (PFWPA).

[ gravity + grace ], a contemporary opera written by Frank Ferraro, reveals his struggles with Parkinson’s Disease and will premier Sept 25th at the Hillman Center for Performing Arts.  All net proceeds of [ gravity + grace ] will be used to support the PFWPA programs and services for people with Parkinson disease, their families and caregivers.
