Etsy Rain Handmade Holiday Show
|Some of the vendors from last year's EtsyRain show|
November 29-30th, 11:00-5:00Elliot Hll at Pier 66
Inside the Bell Street Cruise Terminal
Now this one is a BIG show, with over ninety artists and artisans, all members of our local Etsy group. I will likely be volunteering there on Saturday, so if you plan on stopping by let me know and I'll try and hook up to say hi!
And as a bonus, you can go for a beautiful stroll along the waterfront while you're there.

PNNAG is having a holiday craft fair at their office in the Good Shepherd Center. This is a smaller sale, focused almost entirely on needlecrafts (sewing, knitting, crochet, cross stitch, dolls and stuffed animals and yes, beading). Members donate their work with all proceeds going to support the organization though the coming year. This sale is small, but it is mighty and I have come away with some truly awesome holiday gifts in the past. (Note their sales are on Fridays and Saturdays, not Sundays).
Two of my friends from Seedbeaders will also be in upcoming shows:
Eileen Nelson will be part of a two-person show at the Al Dogget Studio December 7-8 from 10:00am-5:00pm.

Craft Show in Your Pajamas
And lastly, one of my favorites; Sarah over at Saturday Sequins will be hosting her second annual Craft Show in Your Pajamas on her blog. She rounds up a fun mix of artists, artisans, authors and other interesting folks making interesting things. Always worth a look see.
So there it is. Just a few of the Craft shows I know of happening in the Greater Seattle Area, and one online in the Blogsphere where anyone, anywhere can enjoy it. Now I'm back to my own Etsy endeavors....
And to all of my friends who ARE doing craft shows this holiday season - all my best to you! Hope the customers come knocking down your doors (but not your booths)! :)
