We have been very very busy bees in the last couple of weeks! So much so I haven’t been able to blog in a while!
One reason: Spins & Needles travelled to Chicago last weekend to participate as an interactive booth at the Renegade Craft Fair, as one of the featured highlights of the sale.
We had an awesome time interacting with the crafters, designers, artists, dancers and the crowd. J got to drop some beats on centre-stage, I helped others get their craft on, and we were both amazed by all the talent on display and all the people who came out. It was truly an experience.
One of my shopping goals was to find prints to hang in our new apartment. And I was able to score two from some of the printers whose stuff I’ve admired for a while: the Little Friends of Printmaking and Strawberry Luna. (The Little Friends print will hang in the kitchen and the Strawberry Luna one will hang in the front hallway I think). Plus I picked up a paper cut out (above) by Owly Shadow Puppets (the one that says “I still know which records are mine” is going to hang in the living room).
Thank you to Sue and Danny and the rest of the RCF crew for the good times in Chicago (and for saving us from our shoddy tent situation)!
More pictures on our Flickr photostream. And more Chicago highlights in an upcoming post.
