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.
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).
