Crafts N’At: Pittsburgh Craft Show this Sunday!

Hey gang! There is a new craft show in town from the Pittsburgh Craft Collective called Crafts N’At, and hot dog! It’s this weekend at Soldiers & Sailors in Oakland 🙂

We’ll be there vending and chatting and hanging out at Crafts N’At with the quite large and super talented host of Pittsburgh crafters and DIY artists all day Sunday. So come check out the best that Pittsburgh’s fresh, upbeat and hardworking craft scene has to offer. Plus, this year’s 2nd Annual Crafts N’At is benefitting the amazing Animal Friends shelter. (That’s where we got our lovely little Sprite in October.

Also, there is a SUPER awesome party tonight to benefit the incredible Animal Friends too. The kick-off party is at Wildcard in Lawrenceville, recently voted “Pittsburgh’s Best New Boutique” by Pittsburgh Magazine, so yeah…it’s a pretty cool handmade haven shop. Come to the part & support both local crafters and local animals in need 🙂 It’s a twofer of warm and fuzzy proportions.

Both the Friday night Kick-off party at Wildcard and the Craft Show Crafts N’At are FREE to attend. And at Crafts N’At there will be fun, family friendly activities sponsored by Creative Reuse Pittsburgh and the Society for Contemporary Craft, food from Coca Cafe and Square Cafe, and performances by Brad Yoder and Shay and Joe Serkoch.

Summer break…

Everybody needs one.

We’re here, we’re working, but in a summery kind of way for a week. Taking some time to relax, (finally), for a minute before summer is all gone.

You should too. Happy summer!

Love,

– the strawberrylunas.
