december handmade bazaar

We participated in the Winter '08 Handmade Bazaar! Unfortunately, it was the day of a big snow/ice storm (very rare for December in Portland) and business was a little slow. It was good fun anyway and everyone made it home safe at the end. (Some of us even braved the weather and stopped by Crafty Wonderland afterwards!) This photo is Havilah standing outside the HB venue, p:ear, in downtown Portland. The photo doesn't really do the weather justice. Brrrrr!

This is (from the left) Bernadette, Emily, and Maureen at our table.

say hi to emily...

emily is another one our members that makes jewelry...she creates these super hip earrings out of repurposed leather strips and feathers. yes, leather and feather(s). hey that rhymes! anyhoo, check out her work!

say hi to bernadette...

hola i'm bernadette, like havilah, love to sew. i mostly make zipper bags and pillows using fabric samples from work that usually end up underneath someone's desk or collecting dust in our vast library of materials. i am a fabri-holic and i am seeking therapy. i also love to sew bags, but i mostly sew them as gifts for friends and family. i have blogged about them on my other blog, craftrabbit. i have plans to make some lunch bags and reusable grocery bags so stay tuned...
