"Crafts make us feel rooted, give us a sense of belonging and connect us with our history. Our ancestors used to create these crafts out of necessity, and now we do them for fun, to make money and to express ourselves." -- Phyllis George
I am cleaning out my closet! This isn't an ordinary closet. It is the size of a small bedroom filled floor to ceiling with art supplies. Having owned a yarn store, you can imagine my stash. It's time. Yep, it's time to destash.
Join me and other crafty folk for the first Do It Your Own D*mn Self craft fair. Catchy title, don't you think? Vendors from around the Chicago area will be selling craft supplies for super cheap. Yes, you read that correctly - cheap! It's our bit to help others while helping ourselves in the bargain. We clean out our closets and make some spare change while you find treats galore at a price that won't empty the wallet.
I will of course have copies of how-to books featuring my designs - brand new and at 30% off the cover price. Now that's a bargain! There will be loads of yarn from Classic Elite, Rowan, Filatura di Crosa and more. I'll also have beads, buttons, and ribbon, plus fabric pre-cut for easy piecing. There may be more as I haven't reached the back of the closet yet. I know, I'm a craft glutton.
