City of Craft 2009

December probably seems pretty far away to most people in the midst of all this mid-summer mugginess, but the months leading up until then are booked solid for myself and the other organizers of this year's City of Craft.  We are already working our obscenely sexy butts off preparing for this year's big event, which will take place on December 12th and 13th.  For those of you who are crafty and interested in applying to be a vendor of cool contemporary crafts and multiples this year, online applications are now up on the City of Craft website.  Check it out!

My job as a City of Craft organizer this year is overseeing this year's installation programming. For the past month, I've been working away writing the installation electronic application, preparing potential installation venue packages, planning with other organizers and brainstorming like mad.  This week I'll be tackling the daunting (stomach-turning actually, for shy ol' me) task of approaching potential Queen Street venues.  Contrary to what the above flyer says, installation applications are not yet online, but they will be by the end of this week.  If you are interested in proposing an installation for this year's event, keep an eye on the CoC website for the e-app and feel free to contact me or the City of Craft official email address for more information or with any questions about this year's expanded installation programming.  

Good luck!
