Handmade, Late Night Crafts

Earlier this week I popped up at the Museum of Craft and Design with my SF Etsy teammates as part of National Craft Month and the museum’s inaugural after-hours event “Make.”

My booth above: I kept my display minimal for this show because there was a high chance of rain and I didn’t want to lug around too much stuff. To my surprise I got everything to fit in one carry-on luggage and a small tote bag. Winning! Fastest set up and clean up ever. Winning some more! My teammates’ booths below (left to right): Coffee n Cream Press by Leah Jachimowicz, Oodlebadoodle by Rebecca Saylor, and Matilda’s House & co by Anna Engstrom.

Throughout the evening visitors could try their hand at the crafting stations including finger crochet, button and magnet collage making, and silk screening. There was even a make your own bitters station and a free photobooth. Plus, everyone got to enjoy the current exhibit.

My booth was right next to the photobooth so a handful of folks got creative and asked if they could use some of my wares in their photo session – um, yes!

People of all ages came to the museum. The music kept the energy up and the activities kept interest piqued. I even got to join the crochet jam and ended up making this basket/tray out of fabric scraps. Now I’m obsessed!

It’s always a fun time at the museum! What crafty things have you gotten yourself into lately? Share below.
