I am a proud sponsor of this year’s Crafty Bastards event on Sunday September 28th (Marie Reed Learning Center on 18th and Wyoming). If you haven’t attended yet, this craft fair is held every year by the Washington City Paper and is an opportunity for some of our area’s most creative people to sell their goods. As a sponsor, I will host a booth along with Knit Happens just inside the first entrance on 18th street (the Northern most part of the fair)
At my booth, you can register for classes, enter to win one of two prizes, buy yarn, needles and notions (much of which will be on super duper sale) or attend one of three free workshops that I will be hosting:
Intro to Knitting: 10:30 am or 12:30 am
Entrelac Knitting: 3 pm
If you want to volunteer at this year’s event, the City Paper is looking for volunteers. As a volunteer, you’ll be eligible to receive a gift bag ($100 value), including a limited edition Crafty T-shirt. (and you get to work with those fab City Paper people…)
The morning shift helps with booth set up and getting vendors’ wares from their cars to their booth spaces. The last shift works at the CP booths, and also helps with clean up. Any shift that you can work is greatly appreciated. Breakfast and lunch will be provided by Whole Foods.
If you can work a shift, email Heather McAndrews with the shift you want.

Don’t drive. Don’t even think about driving. Adams Morgan parking can’t handle an average Wednesday night bar crowd, let alone the 25,000 people that are expected to come this year. Catch the Red Line to Dupont Circle and walk up 18th Street or go one stop further to Woodley Park Station and walk east on Calvert Street NW. If you come from Woodley Park, my booth will be the first one inside the first entrance to the Festival.
