I was fortunate enough to be a part of the most recent FM area crafter's event. The event was located at the Fargo Brewing Company in downtown Fargo. The facility was far more than I had pictured. They have made a very nice name for themselves, and it shows by the attendance of the event, all of the positive feedback, as well as the delicious tasting brews.
I brought with me to this show quite the variety of products. Diaper clutches for the mama on the go (thankful to no longer have to carry a diaper bag anymore!), pacifier clips to keep those nuk's in line, small zipper pouches to attach to any bag or keychain or hold your gym card, cash on the go, your child's lunch money, and that dreaded paci. I also brought with me my array of prints. I designed a few new ones for the event, the plaid season is upon us and I couldn't resist!
Sewing these scarves was a very fun project for me! Picking out beautiful fabrics to sew into scarves was the hard part. It's not a bad problem to have that I cannot narrow down all of the beautiful prints. I actually only have a few left so I will be posting them on Instagram/Facebook for sale soon.
I attempted my hand at sewing pot holders with a very fun beer fabric print but I failed miserably. We'll just say that I need to practice my binding skills and if anyone is great at sewing on binding, I have 9 potholders sitting here waiting for you. I did also make some nice and soft camera strap covers as well as men's travel bags.
The best part of being creative is the challenge of trying new things. But also, the worst part of being creative is that you have 7 projects going at once, trying to attempt them all at full speed and hoping atleast one of them turns out right.
Hey there good lookin'! is one of the most recent prints. This wood plaque actually hangs on our living room wall and I love how I can easily put a new print on or hang my children's artwork.
Here is a not so great photo of the event space. Unglued Market (Ashley & Justin Morken) did an amazing job setting this event up . Those two and their team are unstoppable when it comes to support local makers.
This is my wonderful husband! He hasn't been able to help or be a part of many shows so I think this was a fun day, even for him. The handmade community in the FM area may be small, but it's growing, and with this event, there were more men present due to the obvious fact, this was held at local brewery.
Thank you to all that came and supported the #unbrewed event! I truly appreciate you!
