I know of two show opportunities in Austin and the deadlines are coming up fast. If you are planning to show at or attend either one of these events, please leave a comment and maybe you could meet up with some fellow ETC members!
The Maker Faire is a two-day, family-friendly event that celebrates arts, crafts, engineering, science projects and the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) mindset. It’s for creative, resourceful folks who like to tinker and love to make things. It will be held October 20-21, 2007 at the Travis County Fairgrounds. Click here to read their call for makers information page, and here to read about it on the Etsy blog. Proposals are due by Midnight (PST) Wednesday, August 15, 2007.
The Stitch Fashion Show and Guerrilla Craft Bazaar is an annual celebration of independent design, artistry and creativity. You can sign up for your designs to be worn in the fashion show, or for the craft fair, or both. The 2007 show will take place Saturday, November 10th at the Austin Music Hall. Applications are due Tuesday, August 28th.
