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.

The Museum of Craft and Design hosted a camp themed craft night and I was all over it. I never went to summer camp as a kid but I imagine it’s full of crafts! Lots and lots of crafts! Also, s’mores and campfires…all that good camp stuff. The entry fee for Craft Night grants you museum admission, materials & instruction for all crafts, plus drinks and snacks. It was my first time at the museum so I spent a good amount of time perusing the current exhibit and the museum store. Then it was off to make fun things! There were four stations: wood-burned postcards, shrinky dink charms, marker ‘tie dye,’ and paracord bracelets with instructors Charlotte, the Education and Programs Manager at the Museum; Carrie of Re-Tree; and Micha from TrackersEarth. It was great to make and mingle with fellow crafties. Tahdah! All the craftings! All we needed was a fun camp song. Did you head to camp as a kid? Share your best camp memories below!
