It was definitely a mad house in here this weekend.

After our blow out holiday party — which was nicely rounded out by neon decor, ice-sculptures, the Brooklyn Girls Choir, and a live nativity scene — we hosted one half of the BK Craft Central Holiday Market.

While I was thoroughly exhausted, by the end of the weekend, I was happy to spend 11 hours perusing the many works of the talented folks that filled the studio all weekend.

In case you didn’t make it, and are still looking for some great gifts for anyone, these people will surely sell to you in your last minute shopping frenzy. I’ve gathered some of my faves:

For a co-worker:

Wonderful bath salts, soaps, and scrubs from Volta Organics

 

For a good friend:

Pendant necklaces from SKT Ceramics

 

For the craft-crazy:

Hand spun, hand dyed yarn from HelloMello Hand Spun

 

For the sweet-tooth:

Oreo-Chip Cookies from Bean & Apple (highly addictive)

 

For the self-analytical writer:

Board Game spiral bound notebook from Another Work In Progress

 

AND Textile Arts Center has a few necklaces, pairs of suspenders, keychains, and woven cowls left! Stop by the studio if you want to check them out.

Thanks to all the vendors for sharing their talents, and all the customers for supporting local artists! Happy Holidays!

Yesterdays talk about wrapping paper and all our recent holiday party planning has us thinking much more about the upcoming Holiday Craft Fairs.

The popularity of DIY and handmade items has created quite the plethora of fairs to choose from… but we hope you’ll come visit us at the two we are participating in!

BK CRAFT CENTRAL

Deb Klein has taken her successful fair out of the Brooklyn Lyceum and will hold it at Textile Arts Center and Littlefields on December 18 + 19 — perfect timing for the last minute shopper. Littlefields is just a few blocks away, so you get twice the fun and free workshops!

3RD WARD

3rd Ward and BK Based do their magic, once again. This is sure to be bigger and better than last years, and perfect for the early bird shoppers. Highlights include live music, cheap coffee and cocktails. Can’t wait!

Last year we participated in a few fairs, including BK Lyceum and 3rd Ward, doing weaving demos and marketing classes.

THIS year, we’ll be having our own fair and selling some handmade items (all by TAC staff). Here’s a little sneak peak of some of the items we’ll be selling (think woven suspenders and circle scarves, jewelry, belts, and keychains)

Plus, we’ll be showing some work from the Awamaki Labs and our fave rubberband master, Margarita of M2 Jewelry.

See you there!
