where cross-stitch is cool

Yes yes yes! Finnally, the most exciting craft event came across the ocean and it’s this weekend in London… the Renegade Craft Fair!!

I’m so thrilled with excitement that I nearly forget I’m a few countries away…. hopefully there will be more to come.

For those of you who never heard about the Renegade Craft Fair (RCF), it’s the apple to the pie of the Indie-handmade-craft movement that started in the USA in the end of the 90s.

In 2003, Sue Daly and a friend decided to take their hobbies to the next level and start participating in craft fairs. They quickly realized there was no event which could  truthfully represent the emergent DIY community of craftspeople and independent makers. So they created the first RCF.

RCF is now held yearly in urban epicenters of creative indie-entrepreneurship – including Brooklyn, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Austin, and London (UK).

For the first Renegade in London, these amazing artists are going to be present and… don’t forget to check out the cool workshops being held!
