Who’s getting excited for the 9th Annual Holiday Craftacular? This years vendor list is up
so be sure to check out everyone! I’m going to start sharing with you some mini interviews with different vendors from the show to get you even more excited! Check back often!
First up on our Vendor Freatures is Cara Moseley of Radical Ways
I will be bringing several hand dyed scarves (some permanent pleated shibori), some reusable shopping bags (Hemp/cotton, hand dyed, some printed with Buddha or Ganesha, Hand sewn Purses and wallets (hemp/hand dyed), sets of “Prayer flags” (hemp, hand dyed), Wall Hangings (hand painted hemp fabric, screen printed with a design of the elements-earth-water-air-fire), etc textiles…
What is your favorite gift memory? The times that stick in my mind are the times when I see how amazed family and friends are to receive a hand made unique gift. One time in particular that comes to mind was the year I gifted my mother a hand sewn table runner made up of fabrics I had hand dyed. She got a little teared up because I know she appreciated it as a family heirloom with deep meaning to her.
Where is your favorite place to eat in Downtown Madison? Graze or Heritage Cafe. Anywhere where they serve a Farm to Table philosophy or grass fed beef, locally sourced veggies, etc…
Which other booths at the Craftacular are you excited to visit to do some special holiday shopping? Many of them look exciting, I am most interested in some of the printers like Geekiana and Just Seeds, also some of the vintage upcyclers like Naystalgia
Between moving (ugh) two birthday parties (yay!) and a million things inbetween, I really honestly have been getting ready for one of my favorite days of the year…. The Holiday Craftacular!!! The show is a bit earlier this year than in past years, so MARK YOUR CALENDAR!!!!
We are so excited to be gearing up for our Ninth Annual Holiday Craftacular! We will once again be returning to the Madison Masonic Center located downtown Madison at 301 Wisconsin Ave. This is a great location close to parking and downtown holiday shopping! The show will run on Saturday, November 23 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. We will have two full rooms full of vendors with everything ranging from clothing to upcycled vintage holiday decor to homemade treats for you to enjoy! There will also be food available to purchase so you can grab a bite to eat and get back to shopping.
