Craft Shows

It looks like February is a good month for craft shows, at least if you live in the San Francisco Bay Area. There are several going on in the next few weeks, including some that overlap and that are in the same locations.

Stitches West
@ Santa Clara Convention Center
Feb 16-19

Sew / Quilt Embroidery Festival
@ San Mateo Expo Center
Feb 17-19

Heirloom’s Rubber Stamp & Paper Arts Festival
@ San Mateo Expo Center – Fiesta Hall
Feb 18-19

Scrapbook Expo
@ Santa Clara Convention Center
Feb 24-25

I’ve been trying to find other people who are going to attend, but haven’t really had any luck so far. I know I’m definitely going to the scrapbook show — I already bought my ticket — and now I’m debating the others, namely the rubber stamp and embroidery ones.

Possibly even better than these shows though, is that there will be a Bizarre Bazaar show, in combination with the Make Magazine’s Maker’s Faire, going on in April. I’m very tempted to sign up for a booth with some fellow South Bay Craft Group members, but I’m not entirely sure. I don’t know if I’d have enough to sell to make it worth it, and it might not even sell anyway. As much as selling things sounds fun on the surface, there’s a lot of work that goes into making it actually happen. I’ll think about it though. ;)

Anyway, if you’re in the area and are going to attend any of these shows, please let me know!
